About this Special Issue
As population expands and climate changes, more people than ever before will become exposed and vulnerable to environmental hazards. Moving forwards, multidisciplinary analysis that integrates Earth science, social science, communication, policy and engineering will be vital for effective disaster risk reduction and the development of sustainable, resilient communities.
This Special Issue aims to highlight how environmental hazards and risk interact with society, to showcase the important role that Earth Science plays in our socio-economic resilience to environment hazards.
We invite contributions (new research, reviews, and perspectives) to this Special Issue from a range of Earth science and related fields, including - but not limited to - the topics listed below. We particularly welcome multidisciplinary contributions that bring together different perspectives from natural and social sciences, engineering, industry and policy.
- Disaster Risk Reduction
- Impacts of hazards on society; past, present and future
- Vulnerability, resilience and sustainable cities
- Hazard engineering and impact on infrastructure
- Seismic hazards
- Volcanic hazards
- Meteorological and hydrological hazards
- Landslide hazards
- Marine hazards
- Multi-hazard scenario analysis
- Hazard, uncertainty and risk communication and outreach
- Hazards and climate change
