towards geoHazards rEsilient infRastruCtUre under changing cLimatES

HERCULES brings together a multidisciplinary team to develop further our understanding of geohazards making infrastructure more resilient under changing climates. The programme will undertake fundamental research to assess and predict risks due to geohazards ultimately helping inform end-user delivery. The proposed study will employ a range of novel research approaches across multiple scales, from the macro-scale, e.g. by integrating Earth Observation techniques, through the meso-scale, e.g. by running experiments in the laboratory, to the micro-scale e.g. by investigating the ground behaviour at the scale of soil particles experimentally using tomography and develop numerical techniques as the Discrete Element Method.
