37th International Geological Congress KOREA
August 25 - August 31
The 37th International Geological Congress 2024 will be held from 25(Sun.) to 31(Sat.) August 2024 in BEXCO, Busan, Republic of Korea.
It is an unique opportunity for the Fault2sha members to be present at a worldwide scale.
Two sessions are particularly important for our community, in the Geohazards (T31) topics. Geohazards are natural events or processes that pose a threat to human life, infrastructure, and the environment. These hazards include earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, landslides, tsunamis, and floods. Geohazards arise from the dynamic nature of the Earth’s geologic processes and can have devastating consequences. The study of geohazards involves understanding the causes, mechanisms, and effects of these events. It contributes to hazard assessment, early warning systems, and the development of mitigation and disaster management strategies. By studying geohazards, scientists and policymakers work to minimize the risks associated with these natural phenomena and promote safer communities.
Consider to submit to two sessions handled by FAULT2SHA members:
Session T31-S1: Surface faulting and near-fault earthquake hazard
Session T31-S2: Outreach tools as a way to increase preparedness to geological hazards
