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 328 contains 49 peer-reviewed papers addressing extreme geotechnical events following hurricanes, floods, droughts, debris flows, and earthquakes.Topics include: instrumentation and remote sensing of extreme events; coastal sustainability and resilience; preparedness, response, and recovery from extreme events; and case histories and best practices.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.
