Some experiences of Italian geologists are briefly reported, in relation to some of the main natural disasters that have occurred in Italy in the last 15 years: landslides in Campania region (1998), earthquakes in Umbria-Marche (1997-1998) and Abruzzo regions (2009). On these occasions, the involvement of professional geologists, along with researchers and geologists from public agencies, has been extraordinary, both during the emergency and reconstruction phases, but also in the studies on the causes of disasters. These experiences show that these professionals are of paramount importance in all the activities of prediction and prevention of geological risks.

Abstract

Some experiences of Italian geologists are briefly reported, in relation to some of the main natural disasters that have occurred in Italy in the last 15 years: landslides in Campania region (1998), earthquakes in Umbria-Marche (1997-1998) and Abruzzo regions (2009). On these occasions, the involvement of professional geologists, along with researchers and geologists from public agencies, has been extraordinary, both during the emergency and reconstruction phases, but also in the studies on the causes of disasters. These experiences show that these professionals are of paramount importance in all the activities of prediction and prevention of geological risks.
