Geohazards Group

At UEA, the GeoHazards group brings together researchers working on a wide range of geophysical hazards such as volcanism, earthquakes, landslides, coastal collapse, and floods. ​

 ​

We research all aspects of hazards, from the source mechanisms, through evolving and cascading hazards, to risk, preparedness, management, response and recovery. Therefore, our group has a focus on multi- and cross-disciplinary research, and incorporates subjects such as geology, geophysics, geochemistry, geomorphology, social science, …​

 ​

Our research takes us around the world to places such as Hawaii, Central and South America, Nepal, Australia, to name a few. We also investigate hazards closer to home in Norfolk. We use state-of-the-art and emerging technology both in the field and in the lab to collect, process and analyse data.​

 ​

The GeoHazards@UEA group significantly contributes to teaching in ENV with our flagship Geophysical Hazards module, and other research-led modules.​
