Géosciences No. 23: Geosciences and natural risks
Cover of Issue 23 of the Géosciences journal.
Whether it concerns earthquakes, ground movements, shrinking and swelling of clay soil, coastal erosion or other issues, geological knowledge is crucial for understanding natural risks.
Issue 23 of the Géosciences journal, which focuses on the United Nations Sendai Framework, examines the contribution of geosciences to understanding these risks. It also looks at the best ways to prevent such risks and reduce their impact, and then analyses the resilience of local regions in the face of these risks.
