GSA meeting session on natural hazards

Jasper Knight-2

Dear colleagues,

 

You are cordially invited to submit an abstract (or several!) to this session on natural hazards at the GSA Annual Meeting in Seattle, 22-25 October 2017. We have a great array of invited speakers.

 

T181. THE GEOLOGICAL SIGNATURE OF NATURAL HAZARD EVENTS

Description: Session focusses on the geologic record of natural hazards. The aim is to review challenges in recognizing products of different natural hazard events including earthquakes, wildfires, flooding, droughts, tsunamis, nuées ardentes, landslides, hurricanes and others.

Rationale :As evidence-based science plays a greater role in our ability to model, forecast and predict future natural hazards as well as influence various land-use decisions regarding suitability for critical infrastructure, building code input, return periods of common hazardous events, our capacity to confidently identify and assess contemporary to prehistoric geological records becomes more relevant. The imperfections of geological deposits may lead researchers to overlook event signatures or misidentify the cause of mechanisms responsible for the deposits in the paleorecord. This session provides a forum for specialists to highlight recent advances (methodological, technological) in event recognition that will assist the broader community of geoscientists in their work to properly document and distinguish between a multitude of natural hazard events that can affect landscapes and people.

 

GSA Abstract Submission is now open until the deadline of 1st August 2017, so not long to go! If you have any questions, please ask. To submit an abstract, please see http://community.geosociety.org/gsa2017/home

 

Thanks,

Peter Bobrowsky, David H. Huntley, Jasper Knight, Catherine Chague
