Georgia Coastal Hazards Portal Training Workshop (CM | 6.0)

April 13, 2012 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

GCHP, is a new web-based interactive tool created to provide a better understanding of coastal resources, coastal hazards and the effects of rapid population growth and development. This online tool can be utilized in many ways; such as, identifying vulnerability to coastal hazards and identifying connections between hazards and natural resources. GCHP was created through a partnership between the Skidaway Institute of Oceanography and the Savannah Area GIS (SAGIS) program with funding provided by the Georgia Coastal Zone Management Program. 

The Sapelo Island National Estuarine Research Reserve (SINERR) Coastal Training Program and UGA Marine Extension Service (MAREX) will host this GCHP Training Workshop along with invited scientists, Clark Alexander and CJ Jackson.

*The American Planning Association (APA) has approved the GCHP Training Workshop for 6 credits. 

For those not able to attend the GCHP Training Workshop, the GCHP Education Team from UGA MAREX (Angela Bliss and Dodie Sanders) will offer a limited number of two hour GCHP training sessions at your workplace. Interested individuals and offices, should contact Angela Bliss at .
