EGU/CERG FORM-OSE Post-Graduate Training School 2016

Landslides and other Geological Hazards


in Active Volcanic Environments
So Miguel Island, Azores (Portugal), 4-9 July 2016
The International Association of Geomorphologists offers 1 grants of 400 euros to favour the
participation of PhD students in Geomorphology (under 35 years old) worldwide (except
Portugal) in the FORM-OSE Post-Graduate Training School 2016 on Landslides and other
Geological Hazards in Active Volcanic Environments organized by the EGU and CERG (Council of
Europe).
The scope of the Training School is to provide an overview of landslides and other geological
hazards processes and their complex interactions and to present a state of the art for concepts,
research, models, monitoring techniques/technologies and warning systems. Updated knowledge
on traditional and innovative multidisciplinary methods and techniques will be presented.
Landslides and their triggering mechanisms, namely rainfall, seismicity and volcanic eruptions, will
be explored not restricting their role as triggering factors, but considering all as main characters in
a hazardous scenario.
The course will be held on the Azores Archipelago, composed by nine volcanic islands located in
the North Atlantic Ocean. Due to its geographical and geodynamic setting it offers a wide diversity
of natural hazards. So Miguel is one of the most affected islands by natural hazards, namely by
volcanic eruptions, volcanic degassing processes, earthquakes, storms, landslides, floods and
tsunamis. Since its settlement, in the 15th century, hundreds of cascade events were responsible
for victims and important socioeconomic impact. By this diversity of natural phenomena, this area
is considered an important natural laboratory and perfect for the application of several methods
and techniques during the course training and field trips.
