What is EHaz?
The focus area for the mobility
program is mitigation of geological natural hazards in North
America. This project will facilitate the integration of
graduate education programs by allowing graduate students to
combine the expertise and experience of several universities
with active programs in hazards. At least 46 students (16
from the U.S., 16 from Canada and 14 from Mexico) will be
mobilized among the participating universities through one-
to two-semester visits and up to 60 more students will be
mobilized via short-term, intensive courses.
A consortium for graduate degrees
in Earth Hazards studies
| The intensive courses will enable the
university faculties to explore further integration of graduate programs in
hazards. The consortium allows graduate students access to programs with
direct links to Volcano Observatories (Colima, UNAM), to atmospheric
programs (McGill, UNAM, MTU), to landslide hazards programs, to numerical
modeling centers (Buffalo), to remote sensing programs (MTU) and to diverse
field volcanological research programs (Buffalo, McGill, MTU, UNAM). The
overall goal is to improve graduate education by exploring mutual
educational interests of several universities active in hazards research.
