Dear colleagues

This is to advertise the 'Multidisciplinary Earth Sciences
Symposium' held in Prague (Czech Republic), September 2015.
As the title states, it would be a great opportunity for
presentations and discussions of any Earth Sciences topics,
with an eye to the environmental problem integrating not
only different investigation approaches, but also different
topics to each other (thus conjugating Earth Sciences,
Engineering, Physics, etc...). In particular, it is to
highlight the following session 'Environmental impact on

''Environmental and geological processes, as well as
man-made occurrences with an environmental impact, can
greatly interact with infrastructures. Such processes span
from subaerial to subaqueous, and involve the transport of
fluids (water, gas) and solids (sediment, powder), impacting
the infrastructures they encounter on the way. By
infrastructures we mean any built (and generally inhabited)
environment and its exposed value that can be impacted by
any of these processes, which are: sand and dust storms,
snow avalanches, volcanic ashes, tsunami waves, pollutant
and powder emissions, debris avalanches, floods and lahars,
gas and petroleum leakages, controlled demolitions, and
nuclear wastes. All of these events, which can generate from
earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and disasters of various
origins both natural and man-made, can severely damage
infrastructures like buildings, bridges, airplanes,
highways, railways, and natural architectures, among others.
In this session, we aim at presenting and discussing the
state of the art and future perspectives of the
environmental impact of the abovementioned processes on
infrastructures. Multidisciplinary contributions that
integrate different approaches, such as modeling,
observations, and experiments, are of particular interest
when characterizing the associated hazards, and quantifying
the eventual risks at the border of earth sciences and
engineering. Such a debate can also be of interest for
public administrators, and private investors working in
areas where it may happen that a given impact triggers a
secondary one, amplifying the damage.''

There will be the opportunity to publish not only your
abstract, but also regular papers on a special issue (see
