dc.description.abstract This study aimed to understand the values, beliefs, attitudes and experiences of U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) flood risk communicators in order to explore the disconnect between the public and expert understanding of risk. This disconnect in understanding of risk has been considered the cause of previous risk communication failures. Surveys and discourse-based interviews were used in order to understand how USACE personnel define risk, consider the public, and how these components impact risk communication practice
