Risk and Resilience to Disasters in Japan
The Japanese islands face an extraordinary range of natural hazards – earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, tsunami, lahars and tropical cyclones.
In the wake of the 2011 tsunami and Fukushima nuclear disaster, Prof Sammonds looks at the impact of disasters, recovery and the building of resilience to natural hazards in Japan.
Professor Peter Sammonds, Director, UCL Institute for Risk and Disaster Reduction.
Peter is strategic advisor for the increasing resilience to natural hazards programme of the NERC. He has been JSPS Research Fellow and Visiting Professor at the Earthquake Research Institute, University of Tokyo and participated in 3 post disaster visits to the Tohoku region, including the Institution of Structural Engineers, EEFIT investigation.
UCL Lunch Hour Lectures
Lunch Hour Lectures are an opportunity for staff and students of UCL and the public to sample the research work taking place at UCL, in bite sized chunks. Speakers are drawn from across the university, and lectures frequently showcase new research and recent academic publications.
