Natural Hazards

The Section on Natural Hazards fosters a focus within AGU on studies of geophysical hazards, including droughts, earthquakes, fires, flooding, heat waves, landslides, space weather, storms, tsunamis, volcanoes, impact by near-Earth objects, and related events. The Group promotes fundamental research into the links between extreme natural hazards and dynamic processes on Earth and in space; real-time and long-term monitoring of active Earth processes; quantitative natural-hazard modeling; forecasting of extreme events and reducing predictive uncertainties; and implementation of effective strategies and designs for hazard mitigation and disaster management worldwide.
