duststorm_1

  • established in 2008
  • fosters geophysical hazard studies — droughts, earthquakes, fires, floods, heat waves, landslides, space weather, storms, tsunamis, volcano eruptions, impact by near-Earth objects, and related events
  • establishes links between extreme natural hazards and dynamic processes on Earth and in space
  • focuses on real-time and long-term monitoring of Earth and Space active processes; quantitative natural-hazard modeling; studying predictability of natural extreme events
  • concentrates on the development of solid links between geophysical sciences and mathematical, engineering, and social sciences communities and users of knowledge concerning natural hazards
  • works in cooperation with and provides a bridge to similar efforts by the global programs of the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG), International Council for Science (ICSU), U.N. International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (UN-ISRD), and other national, regional and international bodies
