Every disaster leaves critical clues in its wake–not only of its cause, but also of how to protect lives in future emergencies. In this Special Report developed for the National Science Foundation by S2N Media, researchers on site within days of the Jan. 12, 2010, earthquake in Haiti discuss their work there and around the world.
The site features video documenting a webcast featuring scientists discussing their work in Haiti, originally broadcast live in April 2010. In addition, a media advisory provides background information on the webcast for media outlets, and extensive biographies of the researchers are featured.
A video and image gallery features documentation of onsite research in the aftermath of the earthquake, including footage of researchers and their assistants placing solar-powered GPS receivers at key locations in earthquake-devastated areas, as well as background information on long-term research in Haiti prior to the January 12th disaster.
