Fractals, multifractals, non-linear processes and dynamic systems are increasingly important ways to analyse data and understand processes in Earth and environmental sciences. Assessment and management of resources and risk are benefiting especially from these techniques. The aim of this conference is to present the latest research and techniques in fractals and dynamic systems with emphasis on mineral and hydrocarbon resources and risks posed by Earth systems. Applications to resources include mineral potential mapping and evaluation, predicting the size and number of undiscovered hydrocarbon reservoirs, mineral processing, geothermal energy, and environmental conservation. Areas of risk include climate (cyclone/hurricane forecasting, paleoclimates, climate change), volcanoes, earthquakes, landscape hazards, floods and wildfires. The conference also welcomes general contributions on applications of fractals and dynamic systems in the Earth and environmental Sciences, as for the previous four successful conferences in this series.
