Disaster Response Tools

Researchers are working to monitor and manage disaster response tools. This includes monitoring environmental quality, mitigating public health crises, and detecting and addressing environmental variables for sustainability, resilience, and positive public health outcomes. This is seen in research focused on resilience in electricity, buildings, water infrastructure, energy management, air quality, wildfires, and flood mitigation.
