This is my first post on this blog. My name is Yuri Gorokhovich. I am Assistant Professor at Lehman College, Department of Environmental, Geographic and Geologic Sciences, City University of New York. Together with our geology major student Mr. Tahjib Zaman we join a team from John Hopkins University, Bloomberg School of Public Health to investigate geologic factors and socio-demographic consequences of floods and landslides in Uganda that occured this year on March 2 – 4. Our work will take place in provinces Butaleja and Buduba between June 30 – July 18th.
More information on floods and landslides that we plan to assess can be found at: http://www.reliefweb.int/rw/RWFiles2010.nsf/FilesByRWDocUnidFilename/SKEA-83CKF4-full_report.pdf/$File/full_report.pdf
