Anatolian pLateau climatE and Tectonic hazards

Objective

ALErT: Anatolian pLateau climatE and Tectonic hazards, is a virtual campus of 10 European academic and 5 industry partners in the fields of applied Earth sciences, natural hazard monitoring, and knowledge transfer. Our research focus is on the tectonic and climatic boundary conditions along the densely populated margins of the Central Anatolian Plateau, Turkey and associated natural hazards. Due to the international scale of the challenges associated with Global Change and active tectonics in plateau-margin environments worldwide, students with international experience and an interdisciplinary background will be best poised to take future leadership roles in academic, industry or policy realms. We combine the resources and training structures of universities, extramural research departments, and industry partners to equip the next generation of geoscientists with the skill sets they need to meet the challenges of dealing with natural hazards in rapidly changing environments and societies. Our efforts are rooted in (1) research-based learning using a fully interdisciplinary, network-wide approach; (2) state-of-the-art field-based method training and courses on data analysis; (3) interoperability of instructors and students; (4) secondments in industry; and (5) teaching communication skills, ultimately needed for knowledge transfer to industry, administration, and the public.
