Knowledge for the future

The severe effects of earthquakes, tsunamis, inundations and droughts have in a devastating way indicated the need for better knowledge of geophysical processes in order to predict and minimise the consequences for mankind. This knowledge also contributes to a better understanding of human impact on the environment.

This Scientific Assembly to be held in Gothenburg on 22-26 July 2013 will be a forum, where experts from various disciplines of hydrology, oceanography, seismology and physics of the Earth's interior can meet and exchange knowledge and ideas with colleagues from all over the world. The Assembly also gives the scientists the opportunity to inform the general public and policy makers.
