Today, the world is facing severe global warming and uncertain
climate changes resulting in frequent natural hazards. Natural
hazards carry high economic and social costs to the entire world.
For this reason, various nations and the governmental agencies
devote much energy to planning and mitigation actions in relation
to natural and human-induced disasters. With the advent of
Earth-observing sensors in orbit in association with geographic
information technology (GIT), Climatologists, Environmentologists
and Earth scientists have access to data and technology that can be
used to assess climatic changes and dynamics of natural hazards.
The impact of natural disasters such as landslides, flooding and
forest fires can be lessened through effective hazard management
and mitigation. The research publications integrated in this book
covers several modelling approaches for various geohazards. They
present new methods and approaches which support long term early
warning and hazard mitigation strategies.
