UCL Institute for Risk and Disaster Reduction


Seminar: Honshu (Japan) Earthquake and Tsunami

17 March 2011

There will be an IRDR seminar on the Honshu Earthquake and Tsunami on Wednesday 23rd March from 4.

00 to 6.00pm (see below for details). The programme is somewhat provisional as analysis of the situation is of course in progress and some experts may be called away to advise government at short notice. Regardless, we hope to offer the best assessment so far of the earthquake and its impacts and their implications.

Wednesday 23rd March from 4.00 to 6.00pm
6.00 to 7.30pm
UCL Malet Place Engineering Lecture Theatre 1.02
  • Professor William Shaw, Chair, Mathematics and Computation of Risk, UCL
  • Professor John McCloskey, University of Ulster
  • Professor Dave Tappin, British Geological Survey
  • Dr Simon Day, Aon Benfield UCL Hazard Centre
  • Craig Libberton, Sellafield Ltd.
  • Professor Virginia Murray, Head of Extreme Events, Health Protection Agency
  • Professor Riki Honda, University of Tokyo

Further details will be released on Monday, and those wishing to attend, please email the IRDR Administrator, Lucy Stanbrough (l.stanbrough@ucl.ac.uk), so we may gauge numbers. We are also looking to produce and upload a podcast of the meeting for those unable to attend.
