Dear Colleagues, Partners and Collaborators,
The First IUGG GRC Conference on Extreme Natural Hazards and Their Impacts will be held on Chapman University campus during 8-12 December, 2012. Please submit your abstract, for list of scientific sessions and detailed information here.
The deadline for the abstract submission is extended until September 30, 2012.
In conjunction with the conference, Forensic Investigations of Disasters (FORIN) working group will hold a workshop.
The FORIN workshop will be devoted to developing an awareness of the FORIN initiative of IRDR for attendees at the Annual Meeting of the IUGG.
The FORIN approach to disaster research strives to address the problematic gaps that exist between the knowledge base on disasters developed over the last 40 years and the lack of progress in policies and practices of disaster management through four basic strategies: critical cause analysis, longitudinal analysis, meta-analysis and disaster scenarios.
