The overall objective of NatRiskChange is to develop and advance methods of analysing and quantifying natural hazards and risks in a changing world. The key scientific aims are the development, testing and pilot application of methods that identify, simulate, and predict natural hazards and associated risks that are under the influence of changing boundary conditions or altered intrinsic dynamics. To keep NatRiskChange manageable we constrain the studies to hydro-meteorological, seismological and gravitational hazard types as well as to technical vulnerability.
For the scientific exploration of the transient behaviour of such systems and the related consequences, we divided the research into three workpackages:
By bundling these questions pertinent to both theory and practice in dealing with natural hazards and risks, we anticipate the paving of new research avenues for quantifying change in hydro-systems and geo-systems by actively exchanging knowledge and methods between complex system analysis, geo-sciences and hydro-sciences.
