Session P47. Geophysics: a tool for Natural Risks Mitigation – joint conference SIMP, SGI, SOGEI, AIV – Potenza 19-21 September 2023

The SIMP, SGI, SOGEI, AIV national meeting (The Geoscience paradigm: Resources, Risks and future perspectives) will take place in Potenza from 19 to 21 September 2023.

We would like to draw your attention and invite you to submit an abstract to the session: P47. Geophysics: a tool for Natural Risks Mitigation

In recent decades, with climate change and population growth, communities and infrastructure networks are increasingly exposed to natural hazards such as landslides, floods, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, sinkholes, etc. Hence, it is becoming increasingly important to investigate the subsurface characteristics and processes linked to these hazards to assess the risk they pose and to support decision makers in designing effective and proactive mitigation measures.

Multidisciplinary approach, based on the integration of geological investigations, ground-based and remote sensing geophysical prospecting, proves to be the most efficient for obtaining a detailed and multifaceted understanding of the processes linked to natural hazards.

The technological improvements in field-data acquisition systems, the use of low-cost sensor networks, the development of novel algorithms for tomographic inversion, have made geophysical techniques a powerful tool for geohazard and environmental monitoring.

We invite observational and modeling studies demonstrating novel geophysical approaches for investigating and monitoring natural hazards, and encourage submissions that link geophysical methods with earth system modeling, machine learning, or novel sensor deployments and analytics to design effective mitigation  strategies for natural risks.

Conveners: Bellanova J.; Balasco M.; Giocoli A.; Peronace E.; Perrone A.

Abstract submission is open at the conference website

The deadline for abstract submission is May 6, 2023.

Please feel free to circulate this information to colleagues you think might be interested.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Potenza!
