NSF awards $5.3 million in 59 grants to study effects of recent hurricanes

Tue, 10/10/2017 - 16:00

Nor that a short time later, powerful Hurricane Irma would do the same in many parts of Florida. Nor that little more than a week after Irma, Hurricane Maria would devastate Puerto Rico.

To help scientists understand how such disasters happen and how we can best respond, the National ...
