Prof. Greg Aldrete is quoted in a Science and Technology story at the national Fox News website. The article, “Man vs. Nature: Why Floods Still Win,” uses the occasion of the fifth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina to quote experts including Aldrete on the historical significance of such natural disasters. Many flood-control problems of today look eerily familiar to Aldrete, who finished his book “Floods of the Tiber in Ancient Rome” (Johns Hopkins University Press, 2007) just a week before Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans.
