Plinius Medal (since 2001)

The Plinius medal has been established by the EGU Session on Natural Hazards (NH) to encourage interdisciplinary research on Natural Hazards.  It is reserved for excellent young scientists with outstanding achievements in a field related with Natural Hazards, with important interdisciplinary activity in two or more fields related with this topic and whose research has been focused on the mitigation of Natural Risks. With the name of Plinius, the medal is intended to acknowledge all the labour of our ancestors to improve the knowledge and mitigation of Natural Hazards.
