Story Map: At what scale does natural infrastructure have the biggest impact on community resilience?

As part of the N-EWN collaboration, IRIS researcher Dr. Matt Bilskie (Assistant Professor in the College of Engineering, University of Georgia), along with his research partner with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Dr. Amanda Tritinger and their team of collaborators set out to find out.

It can be difficult to assess the real-world impacts of a natural infrastructure project, so the researchers used models to determine how big or small projects needed to be to have the biggest impact on flooding in coastal and riverine systems.

To help explain their process and results, the researchers developed a storymap.
