  • Recent Geodynamics, Georisk and Sustainabe Development in the Black Sea to Caspian Sea Region

    All papers were peer-reviewed. These contributions address regional geodynamics and geohazards, mitigation of the catastrophic impacts of extreme natural events on society, and how to raise the awareness of scientific as well as political decision makers in order to launch appropriate initiatives for the region in terms of disaster mitigation and ...

  • Geological Atlas of Africa

    This is the first attempt to summarise the geology of Africa by presenting it in an atlas and to synthesise the stratigraphy, tectonics, economic geology, geohazards, geosites and geoscientific education of each country and territory of the continent. Furthermore, the digitised geological maps (on the attached CD-ROM) are correlated and harmonised ...

  • Geohazard-associated Geounits

    Globally there has been a marked increase in both the frequency and cost of natural disasters occurring due to geological, hydrological and meteorological causes. According to the United States National Academy of Sciences losses caused by natural disasters have quadrupled in the last twenty years. This book, conceived as a technical manual deals ...

  • Induced Seismic Events

    Induced seismic events are of high scientific and economic significance. They are the result of human activities interacting with regional and local tectonics, changing the local crustal stress state by mining, extraction of rock masses, injection of fluids into the rock massif, and by changing the surface loading and pore pressure state near ...

  • Advances in Watershed Hydrology

    The International Memorial Conference was held in Assisi, Italy, October 2013, and organized by the Research Institute for Geo-Hydrological Protection to celebrate the life and work of Dr. Florisa Melone. The Conference brought together some of the most renown and respected scholars from different parts of the world. More than one hundred ...

  • Global Geodetic Observing System

    With the provision of accurate reference frames and observations of changes in Earth's shape, gravity field and rotation, modern geodesy takes a fundamental role for improved understanding of geodynamics, geohazards, the global water cycle, global change, atmosphere and ocean dynamics, and it supports many societal applications that depend on ...
