Developing Geomorphological mapping skills and datasets in anticipation of subsequent Susceptibility, Vulnerability, Hazard and Risk Mapping

Project background

Based on 2014 / 2015 project on Coupling terrestrial and marine datasets for coastal hazard assessment & risk reduction in changing environments’ it has clearly emerged that it is of utmost importance to have not only geological but also (and possibly more importantly), geomorphologic base maps on which to initiate, first the susceptibility mapping and subsequently, the hazard, vulnerability and finally risk mapping. Based on the above and UNIMORE's excellent experience with geomorphologic mapping in the north-west of Malta, it is proposed that the 2016-17 proposal will be based on developing geomorphological mapping skills and datasets in the participating centres and country coastlines.
