The EGU General Assembly 2018 will bring together geoscientists from all over the world to one meeting covering all disciplines of the Earth, planetary and space sciences. The EGU aims to provide a forum where scientists, especially early career researchers, can present their work and discuss their ideas with experts in all fields of geoscience.
The CMCC Foundation, in particular two CMCC researchers Paola Mercogliano and Guido Rianna of REMHI – Regional Models and geo-Hydrological Impacts Division, will co-organize the session “Effects of climate and environmental changes on landslides” (NH3.10/CL2.21) while aiming to gather test cases and investigations carried out in different geographical contexts in evaluation of ongoing and future landslide activity.
The session will take place at the European Geosciences Union General Assembly 2018 (EGU 2018), in Vienna, Austria, on April 8-13, 2018.
More in detail, regarding the session organized by the CMCC Foundation, contributions addressing the following topics are welcome:
- modeling of future slope stability conditions exploiting climate projections;
- analyses of records of landslides (using both historical research or paleo-evidences) and climate variables and their combinations;
- evaluations at different detail from slope to regional scale to global scale, considering variations in landslide occurrence, frequency, susceptibility, hazard and risk;
- studies considering the coupled effect of environmental (e.g., land use/cover) and climate change.
The exact day of session NH3.10/CL2.21 will be decided in February. We will communicate it as soon as possible.
