Enki Research operates in that amorphous realm between government grants, “public good” research, and the private sector, working with a variety of clients in all these sectors to better understand hazards like Tropical Cyclones (hurricanes), Earthquakes and their effects (like landslides, tsunamis), as well as the impacts of anthropogenic (caused by Humans) disasters like economics, conflict zones (wars), weapons of mass destruction, industrial accidents, and so forth.
This page has two types of posts:
1) Serious posts discussing the ongoing research, as well as updates on potential and ongoing disasters and their impacts;
2) Less serious posts about the often overblown, clearly self-important reaction of politicians and the News Media to disasters, under the label “Doomwatch”.
The opinions expressed here are the personal opinions of the Director of Research and Development.
