The U.S. Geological Survey has embarked on an effort to develop its ten-year strategy in its natural hazards mission area and is collecting feedback from the public. You are invited to take advantage of this opportunity to participate. Four general discussion questions have been posted to stimulate the discussion and participants are encouraged to view them in advance. The guest will be two members of the USGS Science Strategy Planning Team in the natural hazards mission area:

Christina Neal is a geologist with the Alaska Volcano Observatory at the Volcano Science Center in Anchorage. She is an expert on volcanic ash and aviation safety and interagency coordination during volcanic eruption response. Previously she served as the first Geoscience Advisor to the Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance (USAID/OFDA).

Anne Wein is an Operations Research Analyst employed by the Western Region Geographic Science Center, Menlo Park, California. She has analyzed agricultural, manufacturing, computer, environmental, geologic, and economic systems from positions in industry, academia, and government. Her current activities include coordination of economic consequences for natural hazard scenarios.
