Why Attend

Geo-Extreme 2021 strives to achieve the following objectives:

  • To share the lessons learned from the impact of recent extreme events on the performance of infrastructure and geo-structures (e.g., embankments, dams, levees, slopes, walls, foundations, pavements, tunnels, landfills, earth retaining systems, foundations).
  • To share current and potential future applications of extreme value analysis and climate modeling in geotechnical practice and design.
  • To share the latest research advances on how the rate and variability of a changing climate affect recurrence intervals and severity of climatic extremes.
  • To share recent advances regarding soil behavior under climate extremes.
  • To share recent advances, challenges, and areas of future research regarding the effects of individual and compound climate extremes and natural hazards on the short-term and long-term behavior of infrastructure and geo-structures.
  • To highlight the use of risk in the proposal and design phases of projects to allow stakeholders to understand the potential impact of climate extremes on infrastructure and geo-structures.
