Rosa Mateos and Oded Katz, visiting scientists at IRPI Perugia


Rosa María Mateos Ruiz from the Geological Survey of Spain (IGME – Instituto Geológico y Minero de España), will spend in our Institute a mobility period of three months in the framework of the Salvador de Madariaga Spanish grant. Her stay in Perugia, beginning the 1st January 2019, will focus on the topic “Geohazards on urban settlements: landslides and rockfalls. New methodologies and applications”. The common and shared research activities will give continuity to the long-standing effective collaboration between our two institutions.

Oded Katz, from the Geological Survey of Israel, will spend 10 days in our Institute in the framework of the Short Term Mobility Program 2018, funded by CNR, starting from 9 January 2019. The objective of his staying is to evaluate and map the earthquake induced rock fall hazard along the Dead Sea western coast, by predicting sites of high hazards using computer modelling and if possible remotely sensed data and image analysis.
