Dear Colleagues,

We are please to announce and encourage you to submit an abstract to the 
AGU session*V042: Uncertainty Quantification in Natural Hazards 
Characterization.* We look forward to seeing submissions from all the 
different co-sponsoring sections and for interesting discussions at the 
poster sessions.

See you there.

_Session Description_

Modeling has been used in characterization and mapping of natural 
hazards and hazards susceptibility for many decades now. Only recently 
has quantification of uncertainty in the modeling of natural hazards 
become increasingly important as computational power increases. Many 
characterizations of uncertainty have relied on well established Monte 
Carlo (MC) techniques of parameter space sampling, although new 
paradigms are starting to emerge in hazards analysis. Researchers from 
volcanology, and severe storm, landslide and flood analysis and other 
fields are welcomed to compare results from MC and novel methodologies 
to characterize uncertainty and properly develop three and four 
dimensional understanding of event probability.
_Sponsoring Section: Volcanology, Geochemistry, and Petrology (V)

Hazards (NH)_
