PL2

This session aims at bringing together scientists working on the use of remote sensing observations
and in situ measurements, and physical or statistical/machine learning models, for the definition,
characterization, and pre- and post-event monitoring of natural hazards and extreme events in the
Mediterranean area. The goal of the session is to stimulate the discussion and to contribute to the understanding of climate change interconnection and feedback mechanisms with extreme events occurrence and trends, and with the natural hazards associated to them. Sudies related to the use of long-term data record and new methodologies able to describe and identify patterns and parameters of natural disasters and to define anomalous and rare features of extreme events are encouraged. Some examples include, but are not limited to, heavy precipitation systems, tornadoes and Medicanes, strong winds, droughts and forest fires, floods, debris-flows and landslides, subsidence phenomena, coastal erosion, and glaciers.
