Our Profile

Geohazards such as earthquakes, landslides, tsunami, floods or wildfires endanger not only lives and infrastructure, but also natural resources and cultual heritage around the world. Earth's population has now reached 7 billion, and more than half of this number lives in cities. The rapid expansion of settlements into geologically more active terrain such as unstable hillslopes or flood-prone river valleys exposes more and more people to natural hazards. The Geohazards Group seeks to detect and objectively quantify the frequency, magnitude, and consequences of potentially adverse natural processes. To this end we augment the record of historic events with evidence from geological archives.
