June 5th Hazardous terrain and disaster management & June 8th Bristol building stones walk

Bath Geological Society invite you to:-
June 5th - Space technologies, hazardous terrain and disaster risk reduction
Dr. Richard Teeuw, School of Earth and Environmental Sciences, University of Portsmouth
During the 21st century there have been major advances in the use of space technologies for the mapping of hazardous terrain and for disaster management. Natural hazards often have a devastating impact on poor countries - as illustrated by the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami, the 2010 Haiti Earthquake and the 2013 Philippines typhoon/storm surge. This talk will examine how developments in satellite-based remote sensing are helping to reduce the impacts of natural hazards on communities, with case studies at the preparedness, crisis response and recovery stages of disaster management.
