Mobilities Facing Hydrometeorological Extreme Events 2 covers our need to understand how the interaction of hydro-meteorological, social and development dynamics combine to bring improvement to or a worsening of both mobile and immobile exposure. The book provides a summary of the interdisciplinary work done over the past ten years. Residential mobility-the way in which the occupation of flood zones evolves over time-and its resulting immobile exposure are also at the heart of this work. In addition, the book explores how climate change and its relation to fast floods in various regions of the world, especially the Mediterranean, is creating extreme events.

  • Provides a comprehensive understanding of residential and daily mobilities in extreme hydrometeorological situations
  • Updates on mobility adaptation cycles in the face of extreme hydro-meteorological events

Lutoff, Celine
Teacher and researcher in the University Grenoble Alpes since 2001, I am a social scientist working on spatiotemporal responses facing extreme natural events and climate change. With a background in sociology (undergraduate) and geography (master and PhD), I'm involved since more than 20 years in interdisciplinary research with environmental scientists regarding extreme natural event. I'm particularly interested in social dynamic exposure and social adaptation to earthquakes, flash floods and effects of climate change.

As a complement of this orientation, my recent works are more focused on interactions between researchers and operationals in risk and climate change domains. I have had the opportunity to join the University of Oklahoma for six month on this topic in 2013. Since 2014, I'm co-managing an intermediation plateform at regional scale, Ouranos AuRA, facilitating connections between stakeholders and researchers concerning regional effects of climate change, particularly in mountains.
Durand, Severine
Research fellow in the University Grenoble Alpes, I am a sociologist of the environment. I am interested in the study of environmental issues in general and in the study of "human - nature" relationships in particular and beyond nature/culture dualism. More specifically, I work on relations between human and extreme weather and climate change issue.

With a background in psychology (undergraduate), geography (master) and sociologie (PhD), I'm involved since 10 years in interdisciplinary research on natural hasards. After a thesis on flood risk culture, I worked 4 years (post-doctorate position) in a research project on "Residential and routine mobility dynamics and weather extremes under changing climate" (Mobiclimex project, ANR, France). Currently, I work in an other research project on "Political experiences of climate change". I'm studying the practices and experiential knowledge of environmental changes of mountain practitioners (in Ecrins french national park).

At the same time, with 3 others researchers I contribute to create an intermediation plateform at regional scale (Occitanie, South-Est of France) to facilitate connections between stakeholders and researchers concerning regional effects of climate change; on the model of others existing organizations (Ouranos in Quebec, Ouranos-AuRA or Grec-Paca in France).
