Geomorphology and Natural Hazards: Understanding Landscape Change for Disaster Mitigation
Natural disasters are occasional intense events that disturb Earth's surface, but their impact can be felt long after. Hazard events such as earthquakes, volcanos, drought, and storms can trigger a catastrophic reshaping of the landscape through the erosion, transport, and deposition of different kinds of materials.
Geomorphology and Natural Hazards: Understanding Landscape Change for Disaster Mitigation is a graduate level textbook that explores the natural hazards resulting from landscape change and shows how an Earth science perspective can inform hazard mitigation and disaster impact reduction.
Volume highlights include:
Definitions of hazards, risks, and disasters
Impact of different natural hazards on Earth surface processes
Geomorphologic insights for hazard assessment and risk mitigation
Models for predicting natural hazards
How human activities have altered 'natural' hazardsComplementarity of geomorphology and engineering to manage threats
