16th Plinius conference on Mediterranean Risks - Montpellier, France 9–12 October 2018

Since 1999, these conferences have provided a crucial interdisciplinary contribution in improving our understanding of extreme rain events over the Mediterranean area, their ground effects and other related extremes, such as drought. Their objective is to provide a strong interdisciplinary forum for discussion of the present state of knowledge, as well the necessary advances in research and application disciplines related to Mediterranean storms. The series focuses on bringing in interdisciplinary participants in meteorology, hydrology, geomorphology and the broad natural hazards sciences, having traditionally been held in conjunction with activities of the EGU Natural Hazards Division.

The 16th Plinius conference will take place from Tuesday 9 October 2018 to Friday 12 October 2018 in Montpellier, France, at the Rabelais conference center (27 Boulevard Sarrail, Montpellier). The objective of the 2018 conference is to provide an interdisciplinary forum for discussions on our current state of knowledge of Mediterranean risks in a climate change context, such as heavy rainfall events, strong winds, sea surges, floods and landslides.
