From the Publisher:

The assessment, perception, communication and management of geomorphic hazards is an emergent field which combines the insights of geomorphology with those of risk studies. A geomorphic hazard is defined as occurring wherever landform change adversely affects the geomorphic stability of a site and also produces adverse socio-economic impacts. Examples of geomorphic hazards discussed in this book are accelerated soil erosion, desertification, floods, landslides, seismicity, soil salinization, thermokarst erosion and volcanic eruptions. The examples are drawn from Algeria, Canada, Cape Verde Islands, Egypt, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Netherlands, Philippines and Russia.
