Geohazard impact assessment for urban areas (U-Geohaz)

Area of activity/subject: Landslides/Rockslides/Volcanic activity

Summary of the project: The U-Geohaz project is focused on monitoring geohazard-associated ground deformations, a key prevention action specifically addressed to urban areas and critical infrastructures. The project will propose a procedure to produce maps to assess continuously the potential impact of geohazard activity. These maps will provide essential inputs to support early warning. The main output of the project will be the development of new products for multi-geohazard prevention purposes and the validation of their potentialities. The project will include a review of the relation between the EU Geological Surveys and the CPAs, with the aim of contributing to improve their co-operations.
