Major Challenges on Natural Disaster Mitigation in Mexico

The Mexico's continental surface is constantly exposed to severe earthquakes, due to its position aside the boundaries of four tectonic plates. In addition, the topography of the territory allows the seismic waves to arrive to high populated cities, such as Mexico city, with a population of more than 21 million of persons. Furthermore, Mexico' coasts are unprotected to the impact of tropical cyclones from the east and west, because the Atlantic and Pacific oceans respectively. The TCAINMAND project has as main goal the application of numerical methods to mitigate natural disasters. During the talk we are going to expose the Mexican scenario and the opportunities that the CIMNE community can exploit.
