A paper published in the EGU journal Natural Hazards and Earth System
Sciences this month shows that landslides triggered by human activity are on
the rise. The conclusion is by a team at the UK's Sheffield University who
compiled data on over 4800 fatal landslides during a 13-year period. You can
read the press release on the EGU website.
Next month brings two important EGU deadlines. The call for candidates
for EGU Treasurer is open until 15 September: we encourage EGU members to
nominate themselves or propose a candidate. Before that, on 6 September, is
the deadline to submit session proposals and short course ideas to the EGU
2019 General Assembly. We hope you help us shape the conference programme by
submitting your proposals.
