Comprehension and Mitigation of Anthropogenic and Natural Hazards

Awareness of marine geological hazards

Appraising marine geological processes to assess their potential hazards

Marine geological hazards, such as earthquakes, landslides, and submarine volcanic eruptions, are major societal concerns. They are capable of generating tsunamis, which threaten coastal communities and offshore infrastructures with severe impacts for the population and for global economies. One goal of ICM is to investigate and appraise the role of seismogenic faults and submarine landslides, and to determine their potential to trigger tsunamis. A comprehensive perception and quantification of these active processes is essential to properly assess their associated seismic and tsunami hazards.
