This course is open to all current graduate students in geoscience and journalism, as well as early career journalists. No previous experience in communicating about geohazards is required.
Communicating hazards is critical for public safety and understanding. This two-day short course with three remote follow-on sessions will cover responsible communication of geohazards, with a focus on earthquakes and volcanoes of the Pacific Northwest.
All expenses during the short course, including meals and field trip costs, are covered for all participants. Double-occupancy lodging is available for a limited number of participants. Participants will receive a $150 stipend upon program completion.
The course is made possible by funding from the American Geophysical Union with an AGU Celebrate 100 Grant.
