About this book

As natural disasters become globalised, often affecting several countries and related to global metero-climatic circulation, a new approach is called for which integrates sustainable development precepts whilst transcending disciplinary and political boundaries. This volume contains studies of a wide spectrum of natural processes and related modelling, risk assessment and sustainable development issues.
