The book identifies high-priority areas for collaborative research, including understanding the Collaborative research on natural hazards book and bioavailability of potentially hazardous earth materials, using risk-based scenarios to mitigate the public health effects of natural hazards under current and future climate regimes, and understanding the health risks that result from disturbance of earth systems.

NATURAL HAZARDS - ABSTRACT BOOK of the INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE, Lessons from the past and contemporary challenges, OctoberNovi Sad, Serbia. Natural hazards research in Geography has a long history and has evolved to incorporate the complexities of the physical and human environments, as well as their interactions.

From this angle, this book aims to give evidence of the various technologies and methodologies enhanced by years of research and experiments on the field to give cultural heritage sites.

The book covers the following kinds of natural hazards: frost-lightning-hail-urban snow-windstorm-hurricane-tornado-coastal erosion-landslide-avalanche-earthquake-flood-tsunami-volcano eruption-drought-and problems common to all these.

the book not only examines actual disasters from the past but also presents methods of simulating possible by: collaborative approaches to hazard and disaster research.

Despite the insights offered by a growing but rather fragmented body of relevant literature, there is as yet little in the way of a blueprint for successful collaborative research and developments remain patchy across differing natural hazard fields.

Researchers engaged in such efforts. Duane E. DeVecchio is a research professor in the School of Earth and Space Exploration (SESE) at Arizona State University, USA/5(68).
