Future trends in natural hazard losses – the Powerpoint file from my Geographical Association 2013 conference talk

Posted by Dave Petley


Yesterday I was deeply honoured to present the AQA Annual Lecture at the Geographical Association annual conference in Derby.  I talked on the topic of Future Trends in Natural Hazard Losses –  essentially a review of what we expect to see in the next few decades on a global basis.  I started the talk by looking at recent trends, and then looked forward to what we might expect.  I finished with an example of one of the mega-quakes that we fear – in this case a large earthquake in Western Nepal.

The slides are on Authorstream – you can download the Powerpoint file there – an should also appear below:
