Biography
 
Gerardo Benito, Ph.D. in Geosciences (1989) from the University of Zaragoza (Spain), was associate research fellow at the University of Arizona (1989-1992), and since 1992 a member of the research staff at the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), holding currently a Research Professor position. His research interests are within Quaternary Geology, with emphasis in palaeohydrology and geomorphology, and particularly on the study of past and recent floods. Regarding the latter, his works have focused on flood hazards in relation to climate and environmental changes, with field sites in Europe, North and South America, and Africa. Dr. Benito is currently President of the Global Continental Palaeohydrology group of INQUA, Leader of Focus Area "Hydrological Change and Climate" in INQUA, Spanish Delegate in PAGES (Past Global Changes) and Member of the IGBP-Spain and INQUA-Spain committees. His research activity is combined with active participation as Lead Author of the IPCC Special Report on "Managing the Risks of Extreme Events and Disasters to Advance Climate Change Adaptation" (SREX), and of the IPCC 5th Assessment Report, WG II Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability, Chapter 3 "Freshwater Resources".
