Critical infrastructures and other technological systems such as transportation systems, telecommunications networks, pipelines, and reservoirs are at risk of natural hazards (e.g., landslides, earthquakes, floods) in many urban and rural areas worldwide. A key to safe and affordable operations of these types of infrastructure is an in-depth knowledge of their exposure and vulnerability to natural hazards and the impact of damage experienced either locally or across the network. Fundamental understanding of hazard and risk involves (i) systematic identification and mapping of potential infrastructure exposure, (ii) integrated assessment of impact as result of damage, repair and/or mitigation, (iii) indirect losses from infrastructure disruption, (iv) consideration of interactions between hazards and/or cascades of hazards. This session welcomes contributions with a focus on natural hazards risk assessment for critical infrastructures and technological systems, and compilation of databases to record impact and elements at risk. We also encourage abstracts addressing the development and application of tools for cost modeling. The session is dedicated to contributions with national, regional, and local perspective and intends to bring together experts from science and practice as well as young scientists. We encourage poster submissions, and foresee a lively poster session couple with oral talks, and will, if appropriate, have an associated splinter discussion session.
We will first discuss the displays in the order of appearance in the programme.
In the last half hour we will discuss overarching questions we as defined from the displays in the uploaded session materials.
Overall we will have 10 minutes to discuss each display with uploaded additional material and 5 minutes to discuss each display without any uploaded additional material so that every display has an amount of time for discussion adequate to the material available. Supporting material can be uploaded until before the session. Please introduce first yourself as presenting author, in 1-2 sentences, and then your display in a similar way. If there are more authors present, they can highlight their contribution.
We welcome a lively discussion at the end of the #shareEGU week!
You are encouraged to participate in the discussion of the displays on the website, until the 31st of May, and put any questions for which the time of the chat is tight.
