Three forthcoming landslide meetings of interest
I thought I would highlight three forthcoming landslide meetings:
1. GSA 2016 in Denver, Colorado
The 2016 GSA meeting will be held in Denver from 25th to 28th September 2016. There are three landslide sessions:
T21. Bridging the Gaps on Subaerial, Lacustrine, and Submarine Landslide Research
Lesli Wood, Lorena Moscardelli
Submarine landslides are never witnessed, but the aftermath is clear: destruction of seafloor infrastructure, disruption of biota, and tsunamigenic coastal threats. This session looks at researchers attempting to bridge between subaerial and submarine landslide processes.
T24. Landslide Hazards: Inventories, Hazard Maps, Risk Analysis, and Warning Systems (Posters)
William J. Burns, Stephen L. Slaughter, Matthew M. Crawford
This session is designed to highlight landslide hazards information especially as related to landslide inventories, hazard maps, risk analysis, and warning systems.
T25. Landslides, Debris Flow, and Rock Fall: Processes and Hazards
Rex L. Baum, Benjamin B. Mirus
This session will explore new insights about landslide processes and hazards. Contributions that address novel field and instrumental observations, analysis, and hazard assessments or that introduce tools and techniques applicable to any of these are especially welcome.
The abstract deadline is on 12th July. Details here.
2. Waiting for the End of the World: The Archaeology of Risk and its Perception in the Middle Ages
This meeting will be held in Oxford from 2nd to 4th December 2016. Details are as follows:
