EGU / FORM-OSE Post-graduate Training School 2016 – “Landslides and other Geological Hazards in Active Volcanic Environments”

The scope of the Training School is to provide an overview of landslides and other geological hazards processes and their complex interactions and to present a state of the art for concepts, research, models, monitoring techniques/technologies and warning systems. Updated knowledge on traditional and innovative multidisciplinary methods and techniques will be presented. Landslides and their triggering mechanisms, namely rainfall, seismicity and volcanic eruptions, will be explored not restricting their role as triggering factors, but considering all as main characters in a hazardous scenario.

The course will be held on 4-9 July 2016 in the São Miguel Island of the Azores Archipelago, composed by nine volcanic islands located in the North Atlantic Ocean. Due to its geographical and geodynamic setting it offers a wide diversity of natural hazards. São Miguel is one of the most affected islands by natural hazards, namely by volcanic eruptions, volcanic degassing processes, earthquakes, storms, landslides, floods and tsunamis. Since its settlement, in the 15th century, hundreds of cascade events were responsible for victims and important socioeconomic impact. By this diversity of natural phenomena, this area is considered an important natural laboratory and perfect for the application of several methods and techniques during the course training and field trips.

WGTG Summer School 2016 – “Alps vs. Apennines: Tectonic Geomorphology of Mountains”

WGTG Summer School 2016

“Alps vs. Apennines: Tectonic Geomorphology of Mountains” – Italy: Western Alps-Central Apennines, July 2-9, 2016

The Summer School is intended for students and early career scientists involved in tectonic geomorphology studies. It aims to offer a comprehensive overview of pioneering techniques, innovative and multidisciplinary approaches for meeting the growing needs of knowledge on both long-term tectonic uplift and sudden geomorphological changes.

The Summer School includes lectures (2 days), laboratory and field activities (4 days). A group of experts from different countries will present the state of the art on tectonic geomorphology and related methods. Case studies from a diversity of geomorphotectonic environments will be analyzed and discussed. A rich programme of field activity will be developed both in the Western Alps, symbol of a long-term evolution orogen, and in central Apennines, where recent seismicity (L’Aquila earthquake, 2009) caused casualties, damages and sudden geomorphological changes.

The 8th International Conference on Geomorphology of the International Association of Geomorphologists (IAG) took place in Paris at the Cité des Sciences de La Villette from August 27 to 31, 2013. The main topic of this 8th Conference was “Geomorphology and Sustainability“. Organized by the Groupe Français de Géomorphologie (GFG) and open to all scientists and practitioners, this Conference included 26 scientific sessions, 5 key-note lectures and one Workshop devoted to Young Geomorphologists.

YOUNG GEOMORPHOLOGISTS SESSION

Convenors: Etienne COSSART, Johnny DOUVINET & Stuart LANE

This session welcomed young scientists (PhD students, post-doctorates) who were interested in discussing new approaches and methods in geomorphology (spatial analysis, mathematical modelling, conceptual and quantitative approaches and links between them). Presentations could focus on any component of the discipline and related earth sciences (hydrology, Quaternary geology, soil sciences, etc.), and be either fundamental or applied. Preliminary results and discussions of fieldwork and methodological strategies (observation, data acquisition before modelling) were appropriate, as well as methodological developments, such as geomorphic mapping through GIS. Equally, numerical simulation approaches such as those linked to complexity theory (agent-based modelling, Cellular Automata) or physically-based methods for specific process representations have been welcomed. The participants of this session have been invited to participate to the intensive course for young geomorphologists held at the end of the conference (from September 1st to 3rd).

FORMOSE Post-graduate Training School: Costal hazard assessment and management, Caen, France, 19-25 June 2011

The Training School was organized by the European Centre on Geomorphological Hazards (CERG, Strasbourg, France) – which is one of the centres of the EUR-OPA Agreement of the Council of Europe – in close collaboration with the Euro-Mediterranean Centre on Insular Coastal Dynamics (ICoD, Valletta, Malta) and the European Centre on Coastal Risks (CerCo, Biarritz, France). The aim of the course was to provide the participants with updated knowledge on traditional and innovative multi-disciplinary methods and techniques for the analysis of geomorphological coastal instability processes and related hazards and risks.
