Summary note
Proceedings of sessions of Geo-Extreme 2021, held in Savannah, Georgia, November 7-10, 2021. Sponsored by the Geo-Institute of ASCE. GSP 330 contains 37 peer-reviewed papers on infrastructure resilience, big data, and risk. Topics include: geo-materials under extreme loading; cold regions and the Arctic; decision making and planning for extreme events; big data and modeling; and risk management. This GSP will be of interest to geotechnical engineers, climate scientists, emergency managers, insurance professionals, and policy makers working to address a wide variety of extreme events.
