Geography faculty, students and alumni profiled for flood work
In September 2013, some Colorado counties received more rain in a matter of days than they typically get the entire year. Colorado flooding made national headlines with what some experts called a 1,000-year rain and a 100-year flood. Behind the scenes, state, local and federal experts in emergency management worked to respond to crises, assess damage, prioritize resources and advise communities on recovery. Many of those experts serving in key positions are CU Denver graduates or graduate students. Read more about the work of those from the Department of Geography and Environmental Sciences here.
