Carissimi Soci SGI,
Carissimi Soci Società Associate,

vi segnaliamo che nei giorni 22-24 Giugno 2021, nell’ambito del Dottorato di Ricerca in Scienze della Terra, dell’Ambiente e delle Risorse dell’Università degli Studi di Napoli Federico II, il Dott. Kei Ogata terrà il corso breve dal titolo "Submarine landslides: processes, products and implications".


Cordiali saluti,

La Segreteria
