HARC Researchers Dr. Stephanie Glenn and Dr. Erin Kinney to participate at the CEC Greater Houston Environmental Summit 2018
HARC Researchers Dr. Stephanie Glenn and Dr. Erin Kinney will be participating at the CEC Greater Houston Environmental Summit 2018 on Friday, August 10, 2018. The focus of the Summit is Post-Harvey: How did Harvey impact our environment and our communities in the Houston and Gulf Coast region – especially in surprising, unexpected ways? Dr. Glenn will be speaking on Summarizing Hurricane Harvey’s Environmental Impacts – the Harvey Map (harveyimpacts.harcresearch.org), a story map created by HARC which summarizes available environmental datasets to detail impacts associated with Hurricane Harvey. HARC worked with regional partners to acquire and analyze data and information about the flooding and related impacts such as storm-related spills, pollutants, Superfund impacts, water quality, air quality, and power generation. Dr. Kinney will be leading a Harvey Environmental Impacts Table Talk – small group discussions with experts on a variety of topics related to the post-Harvey theme, including impacts on our air and water quality, environmental justice initiatives, wildlife and landscape conservation, and efforts to build resiliency.
The Summit is a networking and learning event for the extraordinary people who work at or are interested in the work of environmental organizations in the greater Houston region.
