Natural Hazards and Risks in Structural Engineering (NHRE) M.Sc.
Dr. Grünthal (GFZ Potsdam)
The students will be familiar with the probability of natural hazard and risk determining parameters. They will be able to recognize procedures of hazard assessment and to process input data and to apply tools to study areas. Students will be introduced in further advanced geotechnologies and existing or ongoing global projects conducted by GFZ.
Seismic Hazard Assessment and Applications (2 SPW - L, 4CP)
