Eric Tate, a University of Iowa faculty member, is also a hazards geographer, who researches and studies issues closely related to floods.

Currently, Tate is interested in the social dimensions of floods. He models human populations to determine who is more susceptible to flood impacts and what are the underlying reasons of that susceptibility.

His research is most helpful when planning for future disasters because it gives communities modeling information that would support a disaster plan.
