CU has a Natural Hazards Center https://hazards.colorado.edu/ which was established by the late Dr. Gilbert White, the Father of Floodplain Management and White advocated in 2001 to reduce flood risk in the South Boulder Creek Floodplain.
In the early 1970s, Gilbert was one of the principal investigators in a major National Science Foundation-funded assessment of the status of natural hazards research in the United States. Subsequently, he established the Natural Hazards Research and Applications Information Center at the University of Colorado.
