With support from the National Science Foundation (NSF), Forrest Masters and a team at the University of Florida are developing new technologies to help engineers and scientists better understand the strong, high-wind storms that batter communities along U.S. coastlines. The National Home Education Research Institute (NHERI) has the broad goal of supporting research that will improve the resilience and sustainability of civil infrastructure against the natural hazards of earthquakes and windstorms. Part of the "Science Nation" series.
