This Friday: Natural Hazards

This week’s Environmental Dynamics Seminar is on Friday from 17:15-18:15 in the Pyramid Room (K4U.04). The seminar will be different than previously scheduled and focusses on two different approaches to studying natural hazards:

Dr Silvia De Angeli (Postgraduate Research Intern (ERASMUS) in KCL Geography working with Bruce Malamud) will be talking about her work on multiple hazard interactions in the built environment which feeds into the RASOR project – a platform to perform multi-hazard risk analysis to support disaster management.

Dr Annette Witt (Max-Planck-Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organization, Germany) will be talking to us about fluctuations in the number of palaeofloods in the Alps during the Pleistocene.

The seminar will be followed by a drinks reception in the department.
