World Atlas of Natural Disaster Risk (IHDP/Future Earth-Integrated Risk Governance Project Series)

This is the 1st English-language atlas to systematically introduce the surroundings, probability, vulnerability and probability mapping for eleven ordinary mess ups, i.e. earthquake, volcano, landslide, flood, hurricane surge, sand-dust hurricane, tropical cyclone, warmth wave, chilly wave, drought and wildfire, and probability mapping for multi-hazard catastrophe on the earth. The above eleven dangers are assessed and mapped at grid unit, comparable-geographic unit and nationwide unit, and the multi-hazard is classed and mapped at grid unit and nationwide unit. the anticipated annual mortality and/or affected inhabitants dangers and anticipated annual fiscal loss and/or affected estate probability of eleven dangers and multi-hazard of the area at nationwide point are unprecedentedly derived and ranked. The atlas could be a stable reference for researchers and scholars within the box of ordinary catastrophe danger administration and threat governance, and enterpriser and probability supervisor besides to appreciate the worldwide traditional catastrophe threat.
