HydroSocialExtremes - Understanding the interplay of water and society
Article in Science Advances provides new insights about human resettlement after flooding
By using satellite data about nighttime light, CNDSers Johanna Mård and Giuliano Di Baldassarre, together with Maurizio Mazzoleni, were able to identify patterns and reveal the relationship between long-term changes in human proximity to rivers in relation to flooding patterns. This article explores and discusses the nexus between natural hazards and vulnerability.
CNDS Research Framework - An integrative research framework to unravel the interplay of natural hazards and vulnerabilities
Several CNDS researchers from a wide range of disciplines have together drafted an integrative research framework for addressing the interplay of natural hazards and vulnerabilities. They argue for the integration of the two major approaches to DRR, which focus on hazard and on vulnerability respectively, and propose a bold, new research framework, which is presented in an article published in the open access journal Earth's future.
Wallenberg Fellowship: New insights about volcanoes - liquid magma can fracture
CNDS fellow Steffi Burchardt was awarded a research grant by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation for her discovery of a paradoxical property in magma: it can fracture even though it flows. Her aim is to understand how fracture formation in magma influences everything from the prediction of volcanic eruptions to deposits of noble metals and the formation of oil reservoirs.
ERC Project: Unravelling the Mutual Shaping of Hydrological Extremes and Society
Giuliano Di Baldassarre, the Director of CNDS, was awarded the European Research Council (ERC) Consolidator Grant for his project "HydroSocial Extremes: Unravelling the Mutual Shaping of Hydrological Extremes and Society."
