In this seminar, Prof. ZHANG shared his latest research results in the understanding of the generation and propagation of hazards during a storm. Prof. ZHANG also introduced that HKUST is developing a 'Digital Hong Kong' multi-hazard simulation platform to evaluate possible hazardous processes during critical rainstorms in Hong Kong, and that would be an attempt to develop a strategy to cope with geohazards induced by extreme rainstorms.
