This volume demonstrates advanced techniques to measure risks, exposures, responses, and solutions to hazards in an array of communities. his volume contributes new conceptual and practical commentaries to assess, mitigate, and plan for disasters.

Original research reports by international scholars on hazard assessment and management are organized into four sections: studies assessing risk using in-depth modeling and technological detection to provide insight into problems associated with earthquakes, torrential rains, and nuclear power plant safety; studies revealing the spatial distributions of exposure and impacts from an assortment of hazards; studies examining human response to increased awareness of the patterns of hazard; and a study demonstrating assessment of resilience of sociotechnological systems to natural hazards.
