September/October 2020
Intensive Course on Geomorphology of Natural Hazards in Mediterranean Areas: from Field Survey to Risk Assessment

GeoNH-Med2020 Lecturers

Classes will be given by an international group of teachers.

WHAT is it all about

During the Training School, young researchers will explore a large portion of risk management pipeline, from fieldwork to modelling and from the modelling results to technical activities for planning risk-remedial strategies. Furthermore, they will gain a better understanding of how to optimize scientific communication with authorities and local population in case of natural-hazard risk assessment.

This event is part of the IAG Training Programme and will be an extraordinary occasion for Early Career Scientists to increase their knowledge in geomorphology and natural hazard and to do networking with experienced scientists and early career researchers in an informal and international context.

The event will be organized in collaboration with the EGU Geomorphology Division, based on a Memorandum of Understanding recently signed between the aforementioned and the IAG, and with the EGU Natural Hazard Division.
