Analysing and discussing topics related to anthropic actions that may increase or reduce the effects of natural hazards.
Seismic hazards. Volcanic hazards. Coastal dynamics. Mass movements. Floods.
Readings available online at the e-learning platform.
Continuous assessment is privileged: 2 or 3 digital written documents (e-folios) during the semester (40%) and a
