The Center for Geological and Climate Hazards supports research and training that improves our understanding and mitigates the consequences of natural hazards. Hazards of interest are mainly those with relatively rapid onsets, such as volcanic eruptions, geological mass flows, floods, and earthquakes; hazards that are exacerbated by climate change are also of interest (For example, strengthening storm surges). We seek to maximize interdisciplinary contributions including geosciences, engineering, social sciences, communications, and others. ​
