Natural disasters are often the result of a disturbance (such as a hurricane) on a socio-ecological system with historically constituted environmental and social vulnerabilities. These vulnerabilities are related to a community's (both human and nonhuman) ability to resist and be resilient to the disturbance event. In this project, FCE researchers are using long-term data from Hurricane Andrew to examine how theories of social vulnerability both correlate and problematize ecological theories of resilience.
