About this book

This volume includes 21 papers which address the issue of natural hazards. Numerous remote-sensing techniques are discussed and their application for monitoring and assessing the damage caused by various types of hazard are considered. The meeting provided a firm base from which to devise ways and means to develop newer technology, and to improve upon existing technologies to monitor natural hazards and thereby enhance the forewarning time which will, in turn, decrease the degree of global chaos.
