Explain It to Me, RWTH!: Professor Klaus Reicherter on the Risk of Earthquakes in Aachen

Aachen is located in a risk area for earthquakes. In the past few centuries there have been some heavy earthquakes and lighter tremors are felt every 10 to 20 years. Professor Klaus Reicherter from the Neotectonics and Natural Hazards Department at RWTH explains why Aachen experiences these tremors so often.

Explain It to Me, RWTH!: Professor Klaus Reicherter on Volcanicity

The last outbreak of Mount Agung, located on the Indonesian island of Bali, killed almost 1,600 people 55 years ago. The volcano has been emitting ash clouds and frightening the local population for several months now. We have produced a video series on the topic of Georisks with the Teaching and Research Area for Neotectonics and Natural Hazards Department at RWTH. In this episode of the series, Professor Klaus Reicherter looks at the topic of volcanicity.
