LAC2018

 

Landscape Archaeology Conference 2018

We are inviting scholars and professionals to submit an abstract for our accepted remote sensing and archaeology session for LAC 2018 (Landscape Archaeology Conference) to be held in Newcastle and Durham, September 17th-20th. This year, the Remote Sensing and Photogrammetry Society’s Archaeology group is collaborating with LAC to highlight the significant interdisciplinary research occurring between these subjects

 

Abstract:  REMOTE SENSING IN LANDSCAPE ARCHAEOLOGY RESEARCH

Session chairs: Dr Louise Rayne (University of Leicester), Dr Chris Brooke (University of Nottingham) and Professor Danny Donoghue (University of Durham)

This session assesses the status of remote sensing applications in landscape archaeology and explores how their use could have a more significant impact on archaeological research and cultural heritage protection in future. It is organised in conjunction with the Remote Sensing and Photogrammetry Society (RSPSoc), which has an Archaeology Special Interest Group. Remote sensing and GIS have rapidly been adopted by archaeologists for several key reasons: fast mapping of entire landscapes, analysis of large datasets, and a way of recording features in areas rendered inaccessible, for example in areas affected by current conflict and by land-use change. In recent years many image interpretation-based studies, classifications and automated detection projects (and thermal imaging, photogrammetry, lidar, SAR [Synthetic Aperture Radar] and the relatively low-cost and user-friendly sfm [‘structure-from-motion]) software packages) have been applied to cultural heritage protection as well as recording and analysis. Applications have also sought to demonstrate the use of remote sensing for specific regions, sites, buildings and even objects. The value of many of the products of these analyses needs to be established more robustly, however, reflecting on the need for them to enhance our understanding of past landscapes rather than primarily acting as aesthetically-pleasing visualisations. While many archaeological projects rely exclusively on trained expertise in remote sensing, others are also making use of citizen scientists to build larger datasets. This session will present a number of relevant remote sensing tools and case studies across a wide temporal and spatial range and assess the impact of an increasingly open-source research environment.  The session will also promote a discussion of how the impact of remote sensing and GIS techniques on landscape archaeology and cultural heritage can be increased.

Announcement: please click here to see the 2nd announcement

Abstracts: can be submitted via http://www.ncl.ac.uk/mccordcentre/lac2018/ with a deadline of the 15th April

MS Amlin Academic Advisory Panel / seeking expertise in hydrology, meteorology, geophysics and structural engineering

MS Amlin writes significant catastrophe risk across its Marine, Property and Reinsurance classes of business. MS Amlin are looking for experts to join their Academic Advisory Panel. The panel is a new initiative to look at the latest academic research in the area of catastrophe modelling (including exposure, hazard and vulnerability) and offer advice and information to a variety of audiences and through a wide range of channels.  By joining the panel, academics will get the opportunity to share ideas, promote and seek industry funding for joined research projects, and of course generate publicity and exposure for the work of their faculties. 

Due to the impact of variables such as climate change and other geo-political factors, as well as newly emerging risks, the risk landscape is constantly changing. This creates a challenge for risk management and the ability to model possible outcomes, stress test extreme scenarios and inform our view of catastrophe risk, an area which assumes greater importance within the business. Whilst we use commercial catastrophe models to quantify MS Amlin’s catastrophe exposure for pricing and portfolio accumulation, we hope that our Academic Advisory Panel will expand our research and knowledge base in the fields of catastrophe modelling. 

MS Amlin are looking for passionate academic experts (at Senior Researcher to Reader/Professor level), based in the UK or continental Europe, with interest in modelling and in-depth knowledge in each of the following fields: 

1. Seismology: A geo-physicist or seismic engineer to help our scientific understanding around earthquake modelling, such as evaluating latest scientific analysis that has been incorporated by the model vendors. 

2. Hydrology: A hydrologist to support our understanding of flood models, such as the underlying hydraulic/hydrologic modelling techniques and latest scientific and policy developments. 

3. Meteorology: A meteorologist with a broad range of knowledge to advise on wind-related perils, climate change impact and atmospheric science in general. 

4. Engineering: A structural engineer with a deep understanding around the engineering of the built environment to support the scientific analysis of damage functions and business interruption in catastrophe models. 

It is anticipated that the Academic Advisory Panel will meet quarterly at MS Amlin offices in London, starting in February 2018, to provide updates of current research trends and new scientific initiatives (datasets, models etc.) in each of the above areas and to exchange ideas. Expenses will be fully reimbursed. 

If you are interested in being part of MS Amlin’s Academic Advisory Panel, or know of any colleagues who may be, please respond by 14 November 2017 with your CV and a cover note outlining how you anticipate you might contribute to the panel.  Dr Tina Thomson, Research Manager, Underwriting Modelling, MS Amlin, The Leadenhall Building, 122 Leadenhall Street, London EC3V 4AG - This email address is being protected from spambots.
