These pages represent the Work in Progress of the Geological Society Working Party on Geological Hazards and are at this stage an experimental test bed and should be treated as such.

Working Party Remit
The aim of this working party is to utilise the expertise within the Engineering Group to provide a 'one-stop' resource for UK geohazard related information and awareness. Key objectives are; To provide a link between Geohazard Experts to those industries, professions and communities that interact or encounter geological hazards in the UK and overseas; To engage with that 'end-user communities' in order to provide a useable resource for their specific geohazard related requirements; To improve communication between specialists, and between hazards practitioners and the wider communities.
Geohazard Information - Trial Pages
This site contains information about the following geohazards:

Landslides & Slope Instability; Subsidence geohazards; Seismic geohazards; Flood geohazards; Tsunami geohazards; Volcanic geohazards; Gas geohazards and Fault reactivation geohazards

Trial Page Structure
This site is structured to provide the appropriate information to the following User group: Engineering geologists; Planners & Developers; The Finance & Insurance Industry; Members of the General Public.
