Workshop

Avalanche Dynamics and Precursors of Catastrophic Events

February 3, 2019 - February 8, 2019
In nature as well as in many technical applications, one encounters the sometimes problematic phenomenon of intermittent dynamics, associated to avalanches, that are complex geometrical objects on scales that can span many orders of magnitude. This workshop aims at bringing together experts from various different fields to develop further the understanding of the nonlinear spatio-temporal response of avalanche systems and to find ways to define precursors that could help to prevent catastrophic events.
Session organized by:

Kirsten MARTENS, LIPhy, University Grenoble Alpes & CNRS, France
