Next year’s European Geosciences Union General Assembly will be held in Vienna, Austria, from 07 – 12 April. As always there will be hundreds of sessions and thousands of scientists, so I’ve put together some recommendations based on my own interest. However, there will be some things that you’ll like, too.
- Earthquake Geology: methodological aspects and case studies
- Active Tectonics and the Earthquake Cycle
- Where earth scientists meet Cleopatra: Geoarchaeology of rocks, sediments, soils and climate
- The Caucasian convergence zone: Deep-seated structure, volcanism and neotectonics
- Advances in paleostress/strain reconstructions in tectonic studies : methods, applications, perspectives
Earthquake & Tsunami sessions:
- Large Earthquake and Tsunami Activity
- Fault gouge properties and earthquake dynamics
- Topographic fingerprints of tectonic activity: how to separate the tectonic component from climate and surface properties?
- Tectonics and seismicity of continental extension zones
- Recent advances in analogue and numerical modeling of tectonic processes
- New Insights into Stress Evolution on Active Faults
Natural Hazards sessions:
- Decadal flood risk changes
- Earthquake Risk and Loss Estimates: New Directions
- Preparing for the next strong earthquake. Ideas and suggestions for all the actors involved in risk reduction
- Extreme seismic events, earthquake hazard and societal implications
- Severe Storms and Extreme Hydrometeorological Events in the Mediterranean Basin: Observations, Simulations and Impacts
- Landslide hazard and risk assessment, and landslide management
- Landslide mechanisms and processes in seismically or volcanically active environments
- Why natural hazard assessment and mitigation sometimes fail and how to improve them
- Early warning systems for natural hazards and risks
- Advanced methods in landslides research I: Characterizing and monitoring landslide processes using remote sensing and geophysics
PS: If this is your first visit to Vienna, don’t miss the Natural History Museum!
