Global Catastrophes: A very short introduction

Professor Bill McGuire (Emeritus Professor of Earth Sciences)
Life on Earth will come to an end: it’s simply a matter of how and when. In Global Catastrophes: a Very Short Introduction, Bill McGuire will explore the hazardous natural phenomena that threaten our planet and our race; from a new ice age to global warming; from an asteroid or comet impact to the next volcanic super-eruption or mega-tsunami. Bill will calculate the likelihood of these events happening and evaluate our chances of survival. Are you feeling lucky?

Communication during disasters: new frontiers

Serena Tagliacozzo (PhD Student)
In the modern world, new and old hazards with an unprecedented potential impact have rose to prominence. From nuclear disasters to increased pandemic risks, from mega catastrophes triggering cascading effects to the environmental disruption produced by climate change, scientists and communities all over the world find themselves facing new challenges. Communication is an integral part of the response to disasters, and the talk will explore how communication dynamics enabled by emerging digital technology can help to respond to these new challenges.
