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.
