Workshop 07 - 09:00 am to 12:30 am

Natural and technological risks
Chaired by Laurent Boisnard (Sous-Directeur Missions et Données d’Observation de la Terre & Applications, CNES) and Gilles Grandjean (Directeur de programme, BRGM)

After a 2023 workshop devoted to high-performance computing for the Earth, climate and environmental sciences, this year CNES and its partner BRGM will be focusing on the prevention and management of natural and technological risks.

HPC computing infrastructures, supported by artificial intelligence techniques for information extraction, modeling and decision support, are now widely used in research into the prevention of natural hazards and their cascading consequences on territories, populations and economic activity. In addition to natural hazards, there are also technological hazards, and all types of catastrophic events likely to occur where these two families of hazards meet. These are known as “natech” risks.

The workshop will provide an opportunity to take a look at a number of projects that illustrate the work currently being carried out in this field, the system approaches adopted and the technologies implemented. As in previous years, the projects will range in maturity from academic research to pre-operational demonstration. The contribution of spatial data will be highlighted when envisaged, tested or demonstrated. Impact scenario platforms, decision-support tools, large-scale simulation codes, numerical modelling of natural hazards and extreme events (and clustering of interacting extreme events), modelling of flows in urban environments are just a few examples of topics covered in connection with coastal flooding/submergence, monitoring volcanic activity, effects of eruptions in the upper atmosphere, forest or industrial fires, dispersion of pollutants, radiological emergencies. Prospects for collaboration between public and industrial players will be highlighted..
