Ching Chuan Huang studied Bachelor of Civil Engineering from Chung Yuan University inTaiwan, Master of Engineering from University of Tokyo in Japan, Ph. D. of Civil Engineering from University of Tokyo in Japan, served he as a Post-doctoral research fellow in Delaware University, His research interests include testing and modeling for the behavior of reinforced ground and slopes subjected to static or seismic loads. The published works include fundamental aspects of reinforced soil walls and new analytical models for the bearing capacity of reinforced ground and slope stability. An inter-disciplinary research of hydrological and geotechnical engineering was carried out, in view of the important roles of subsurfacehydrological process played in the rainfall-induced slope failures and debris flows. In the post-disaster study of typhoon Morakot which triggered a maximum rainfall depth of 2884 mm in August 2009 in central Taiwan,a new temporal pattern of rainfall (called Gaussian-distribution-based hyetograph) and a new theory of debris flow initiation was proposed. In addition, a novel method for predicting periodic rainfallinduced displacements of slopes using the force-equilibrium-based finite displacement method (FFDM) was proposed to facilitate cost- and time-effective slope stability and displacement evaluations.

André Berger is currently ordinary professor at the Catholic University of Louvain in Louvain-La-Neuve (UCL) where he lectures on meteorology and climate dynamics.His university training was in mathematics from UCL and Meteorology from M.I.T. He was received Doctor of Sciences from UCL in 1973 with a thesis on the astronomical theory of paleoclimates. After his return from USA as a CRB graduate fellow of the Belgian Educational Foundation, he started his career of professor at UCL. He was then Visiting Professor at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel where he lectured at the International Post Graduate training Course on Fundamental and Applied Quaternary Geology (1982–1993) and at the University of Liège for a Maîtrise en Géologie des Terrains Superficiels (1985–1993). He was and still is invited to lecture on paleoclimate modelling in different European universities. He is doctor honoris causa from the University of Aix-Marseille III, the Université Paul Sabatier in Toulouse and the Faculté Polytechnique de Mons. He was head of the Institute of Astronomy and Geophysics Georges Lemaître from 1978–2001. His main research is about modeling climatic changes at the geological and at the century time scales. He has made original contributions to the astronomical theory of paleoclimates aiming to explain the recurrence of glacial-interglacial cycles from the long-term variations of the Earth’s orbit around the Sun. The climate model that he has developed with his team is used for simulating the long-term climatic variations over the last millions of years, the response of the climate system to human activities as well as the possible impact of such man’s induced perturbations on the natural course of climate at the geological time scale. He is a cited pioneer of the interdisciplinary study of climate dynamics and past climate history. André Berger is the author of “Le Climat de la Terre, un passé pour quel avenir?”. He has edited 10 books on climatic variations and has published more than 150 papers on this subject. André Berger is Honorary President of the European Geosciences Union and is fellow of the American Geophysical Union. He was chairman of both the International Climate and the Paleoclimate Commissions and President of the European Geophysical Society. He serves on several national and international scientific committees dealing with climate and global change. He is, in particular, member of the scientific council of the European Environment Agency and of different national academies.
