Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
This substantially revised 3rd Edition of Environmental Hazards, argues that knowledge about hazards and hazard mitigation, must be better applied to reduce death and destruction, particularly in developing countries. All the major rapid onset events which directly threaten humans and what they value are covered:
* tectonic hazards - earthquakes and volcanos
* mass movement hazards
* severe storm hazards
* biophysical hazards - temperature extremes, epidemics and wildfires
* hydrological hazards
* technological hazards.
The revised 3rd Edition includes new material on disaster debates and looks forward to future problems in the 21st century. This important book provides a balanced and up-to-date approach to environmental hazards and is ideally suited to act as a course text.
