Abstract

Description: Integrated Disaster Science and Management: Global Case Studies in Mitigation and Recovery bridges the gap between scientific research on natural disasters and the practice of disaster management. It examines natural hazards, including earthquakes, landslides and tsunamis, and uses integrated disaster management techniques, quantitative methods and big data analytics to create early warning models to mitigate impacts of these hazards and reduce the risk of disaster. It also looks at mitigation as part of the recovery process after a disaster, as in the case of the Nepal earthquake. Edited by global experts in disaster management and engineering, the book offers case studies that focus on the critical phases of disaster management.

Key Features:
Identifies advanced techniques and models based on natural disaster science for forecasting disasters and analyzing risk
Offers a holistic approach to the problem of disaster management, including preparation, recovery, and resilience
Includes coverage of social, economic, and environmental impacts on disasters

Readership:
Graduate students, postgraduate students, researchers, and practitioners in disaster/emergency management Secondary audience: Researchers in disaster science
