Planning and geohazards

By A.D. Gibson and R. Chowdhury

Abstract

Fifty six papers were accepted for the Geohazards and Planning Theme of the 10th Congress of the International\ud Association for Engineering Geology and the Environment. Authors from sixty different countries successfully\ud submitted papers, with particularly strong representation from China, Brazil, Russia and Turkey (Fig. 1.). Due to the\ud popularity of this Congress theme, it has not been possible to summarise all of the papers accepted, or indeed fully\ud represent the breadth of research contained within individual works. Selected papers are considered here as\ud representative case studies to illustrate state of the art research and developments pertaining to different geohazards\ud (Table 1), and also the topics of risk modelling, urbanization as the cause of hazard, and mitigation techniques
