Realistic evaluation of temporal interactions of natural hazards

Objective

The RETINA project focuses on understanding the links between three types of natural hazard: earthquakes, landslides and volcanoes, in three natural laboratories in Europe: Azores, Alps, and Iceland. Our innovative hypothesis suggests that mechanical coupling can explain the correlations commonly observed between hazard events. We will test it using existing observational networks and new measures of crustal deformation from satellite geodetic technologies. These observations will drive development and application of new models for earthquake-and storm-triggered landslides, seismically triggered volcanic eruptions, and volcanically triggered earthquakes and landslides. The main contribution to our end-user partners in civil defence/land planning is an additional temporal and spatial component to standard hazard and risk.
