I am visiting the University of Geneva as part of the CERG-C project. Professor Costanza Bonadonna is the leader of the activity which is a course on hazard and risk with an international group of students. They have been in Geneva for a few weeks for classroom work and starting tomorrow they go to Vulcano Island for practical experience. I am going to join.
I gave a lecture and a practical demonstration on the general topic of Topography, but trying to emphasize its fundamental value for science and applied value for hazard assessment. And, of course making the point that high resolution data are most useful.
Here are the pdfs to my lectures and demo:
- Introduction to topography
- Earthquakes and Faults 101--includes IRIS animations
- Sharpening our view of Earth processes with high resolution topography
