DSCA: 2015.12.08

I presented a talk to a senior seminar for the Defense Support of Civil Authorities (DSCA) in regards to their efforts to prepare for the disaster following a Cascadia subduction zone (CSZ) earthquake and tsunami. The Department of Defense provides support to local, regional, and federal organizations following disasters, natural or otherwise.

I post some supprting material below, as long as some of the references that I use in this presentation.

    Here is the digital presentation that I prepared for their seminar in Portland, Oregon
