International workshop on Effects of paleoclimatic and catastrophic events since the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM) on mobility, migration, and landscape evolution.

On the 13-16th of November, the Museo de Málaga (Spain) hosted an international workshop about Effects of paleoclimatic and catastrophic events since the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM) on mobility, migration, and landscape evolution.

Since Palaeolithic times, the Iberian Peninsula has been considered a strategic point acting as a refugium and destination area for human migration and settlement. Coastal regions, in particular, are of paramount importance. Considering this, researchers from different disciplines and universities from six different countries met in Málaga to promote a better understanding of multidisciplinary research on paleoclimate, landscape evolution, sea-level changes, catastrophes and hazards, as well as components of cascading and interconnected risk for human settlement, migration and resilience.

These topics aim to be the starting point to identify potentially interested scientists and form a multi-disciplinary team to be able to submit a joint EU Horizon2020 project in the future, giving continuity to the research questions in which the CRC806-C1 team is currently focused.

After two days of fruitful discussions, the workshop was closed by a guided excursion to Ardales Cave.
