Despite registering low on the global geohazard context of large earthquakes and violent volcanic eruptions, a number of costly geohazards pose a risk to property across Britain. In this webinar, Geologist Tim Longden will guide you through the geohazards that should concern property owners and why it’s an important risk to consider in property purchase.

Presenter: Tim Longden
Duration: 45 Minutes

In this webinar Geotech Engineer Chris Milne questions why this hazard has to a large extent, been ignored in property purchase and also address some misconceptions. Chris will review how climate change is increasing the risk to a growing number of properties around the UK and specific case studies where coastal erosion has resulted in total loss of property.

Presenter: Chris Milne
Duration: 20 minutes

For UK homes built on top of clay, soil subsidence is a key risk to consider as a property owner. In this webinar Dr Tim Farewell discusses the importance of expert interpretation in understanding this complex, yet relatively common, geohazard and why owners of properties in existing risk areas are not the only ones that should be concerned.

Presenter: Dr Tim Farewell
Duration: 20 minutes

Landslides, while relatively rare in the UK are a complex geohazard that require significant geoscientific understanding and years of experience and study. In this webinar, experienced Geotech Engineer Chris Milne uses examples to explain landslide risk to property in the UK and how this geohazard is likely to react to predicted climate conditions.

Presenter: Chris Milne
Duration: 23 minutes
