"Seismology, Seismic Data Analysis, Hazard Assessment and Risk Mitigation"
The GFZ section Physics of Earthquakes and Volcanoes carries out annual training courses on "Seismology and Seismic Hazard Assessment". These courses are part of the educational and training program of the UNESCO in the field of geosciences and disaster mitigation.
The courses provide theoretical fundamentals and practical training in applied seismology, especially for geoscientists and technicians from developing countries. The program is particularly useful for seismological station and network operators, data interpreters and those concerned with seismic zoning and hazard assessment.
The courses are held alternately in Potsdam, Germany, and in an developing country.
