Techniques for Disaster Risk Management and Mitigation

We are often told our Universe began with a Big Bang, a disaster that made the stars and galaxies we see today.And, ever since, life on earth has evolved and flourished,surviving a series of unexpected bangs and calamities of one or another type.

Nowadays, every place on earth is vulnerable to some kind of disaster, whether natural or human induced. Not only are developing and third world countries with less infrastructure and facilities in danger,but leading developed economies too face severe negative impacts due to disasters in terms of human and capital losses, mostly due to our lack of understanding of the processes involved in contributing to the severity of a disaster.

With the most stated reason for the increase in the number and frequency of these disasters being the recent episodes of climate change and variability in earth’s history, many researchers have directed their studies towards developing more advanced and sophisticated early warning systems and techniques for precise prediction and forecasting of disaster.

In this context, this book highlights state‐of‐the‐art new approaches, various modelling aspects, the role of field observations and management strategies, and efficient use of infrastructure in combating disasters. It addresses the interests of a wide spectrum of readers with a common interest in geospatial science, geology, water resource management, database management, planning and policy making, and resource management.

The chapters in book focus mostly on emphasizing the investigation and identification of disasters through advanced computational techniques in conjunction with Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Earth observation data sets for better management, adaptation, and mitigation of natural disasters.
