Don and UGA colleague Marshall Shepherd are part of a team awarded a NOAA grant focused on improving use and outcomes of using climate forecasting information "Incorporating Principles of Environmental Justice into Forecast Informed Reservoir
Operations, a Climate and Flood Adaptation Strategy". The team is led by Tom Corringham at the Scripps Institute and UCSD. The work is focused on potential socioeconomic benefits of FIRO to frontline communities and how such benefits might be realized. The ultimate outcome of this project is to integrate assessment of the impacts of FIRO on frontline communities by developing a methodology that can be applied at different stages of the FIRO process that could be implemented nationally.
