Dynamic Earth, Surface Processes and Natural Hazards

Earth’s dynamic surface provides the platform for life on the planet, and the resources needed to support and sustain society. Critical challenges today demand solutions, which study of the Earth can help to provide: from the discovery and sustainable use of critical natural resources, the disposal of waste (including carbon dioxide), to understanding the processes that drive the Earth today.

Researchers across the Dynamic Earth, Surface Processes and Natural Hazards stream are working at the frontiers of science, from computational geodynamics, theoretical seismology and isotope geochemistry to the quantification of surface processes over all timescales, natural resource discovery, and analysis, detection and mitigation of geophysical hazards and risk.
