Climate State

Published on Sep 19, 2016

Bill McGuire on the influence of climate change on geological systems, the link between episodes of major climate transition and geohazards (2012). Small changes in the Earth’s crust can potentially trigger large hazards such as earthquakes and volcanoes.

Bill McGuire is Professor of Geophysical & Climate Hazards at UCL. He was a member of the UK Government’s Natural Hazards Working Group, established in 2005 in the wake of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, and in 2010 a member of the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE), addressing the Icelandic ash problem. He was a contributing author of the 2011 IPCC Report on climate change and extreme events.
