GeoEarth-2020 welcomes colleagues from all branches of Geosciences and from many countries in the world to participate to the second edition of thw 'World Congress on Geology and Earth Science'. The Conference will enable the sharing of best practices in Geoscience as well as exploring the role of remote sensing in monitoring Earth processes and dynamics.

The topics of the Conference include:

  • Environmental Geology, 
  • GIS, Remote Sensing and Geospatial Sciences, 
  • Marine Geosciences and Oceanography,
  • Groundwater and Hydrology: Surface Hydrology/Surface Water,
  • Rock Deformation and Structural Geology,
  • Volcanology and Plate Tectonics,
  • Earth, Ecology and Ecosystems,
  • Soil Science and Conservation of Soil Biodiversity.
The International Consortium on Landslides and the Global Promotion Committee of International Programme on Landslides will organize the Fifth World Landslide Forum (WLF5) on 2-6 November 2021 in Kyoto, Japan. The aim of this Forum is to promote and share knowledge and best practices about landslide risk mitigation, monitoring and early warning.
 
The forum will discuss the following topics:
  • Sendai Landslide Partnerships and Kyoto Landslide Commitment
  • Hazard and vulnerability mapping and zonation
  • Remote sensing for landslide risk mitigation
  • Technologies for monitoring and early warning
  • Testing, modeling and risk assessment
  • Catastrophic landslides: causes and consequences
  • Frontiers of landslide science and innovative practices
  • Specific topics in landslide science and applications
