ASSESSMENT OF RESEARCH ON NATURAL HAZARDS. This book was written with the objectives of (1) providing a more nearly balanced and comprehensive basis for judging the social utility of allocating funds and personnel for various types of research of geophysical hazards, and (2) stimulating, in the process of that analysis, a more systematic appraisal of research needs by scientific investigators.

16, Issue. Uncertainties are pervasive in natural hazards, and it is crucial to develop robust and meaningful approaches to characterize and communicate uncertainties to inform modeling efforts.

In this monograph we provide a broad, cross-disciplinary overview of issues relating to uncertainties faced in natural hazard and risk assessment. Abstract. The risk due to natural hazards is usually assessed in physical terms by estimating the losses they may cause. Nevertheless, the risk assessment can involve other aspects like the lack of economic and social development, management deficiencies and inability of the society to respond and recover in case of a hazard event.

The most important natural hazards are: strong earthquakes, major floods, landslides, soil erosion and drought. The surface exposed to the landslide risk isha, where are loca This book addresses different aspects of natural hazards and vulnerabilities, with a focus on prevention and protection.

It consists of nine chapters, five on flood events addressing vulnerabilities, risk assessments, impacts, sensitivity analyses, and mitigation measures, two on climate change and reconstruction of natural hazard events such as avalanches and rockslides, and two on tsunamis Author: José Simão Antunes do Carmo.
