Michigan Technological University 2019 Alumni Reunion

Thursday, August 1:

8:30 am: Reunion Kickoff
Memorial Union Building (34) Alumni Lounge, first floor
Alumni Reunion 2019 kicks off with a review of the upcoming reunion activities. Greet some old friends, make some new ones. Refreshments will be available.

9:15 am: Guided Campus Tour
Memorial Union Building (34) Alumni Lounge, first floor

10:15 am: Tech Talks : Dr. Veronica Webster, Intense Rainfall and Flood Risk in an Environment of Increasing Uncertainty
Fisher Hall (15) Room 135
The 2018 Father's Day flood event resulted in significant damage and losses throughout the Keweenaw. Has changing climate brought more intense storm events to the region? How do these storms combined with alterations to the landscape and development in the area affect future flood risk? This talk will explain methods for understanding the risk of future floods, as well as the causes of the intense rain storm that triggered the Father's Day flood and the risk of such events in the future.
No Charge

11 am: Tech Talks: Dr. John Gierke, Geospatial Data Analysis of the 2018 Copper Country Father's Day Flood
Fisher Hall (15) Room 135
Digital topographic and land use information can be used in computational tools to forecast rainfall runoff in catchments and the stability of slopes. Faculty and students in geological engineering acquired and used geospatial data to better understand the Ripley Creek flooding and causes of the adjacent-slope failures during the 2018 Father's Day Flood. Professor John Gierke will share the work of a geological engineering student group that used the flooding, landslides, and debris flows in Ripley as a culminating design-project experience.
No Charge
