Natural Hazards


The Natural Hazards (NH) Division of the European Geosciences Union (EGU) covers all the geological and geophysical processes that can be hazardous and can produce damage to the environment and to the society.

The European Geosciences Union (EGU) is the leading organisation for Earth, planetary and space science research in Europe. With partner organisations worldwide, EGU fosters fundamental geoscience research, alongside applied research that addresses key societal and environmental challenges. EGU’s vision is to realise a sustainable and just future for humanity and for the planet. 

This blog hopes to address a number of topics, as well as the major challenges, related to natural hazards. People wishing to contribute should contact Asimina Voskaki.
