Natural Hazards is devoted to original research work on all aspects of natural hazards, including the forecasting of catastrophic events, risk management, and the nature of precursors of natural and technological hazards.
Although hazards can originate in different sources and systems, such as atmospheric, hydrologic, oceanographic, volcanologic, seismic, neotectonic, the environmental impacts are equally catastrophic. This warrants a close interaction between different scientific and operational disciplines, aimed at enhancing the mitigation of hazards.
Coverage includes such categories of hazard as atmospheric, climatological, oceanographic, storm surges, tsunamis, floods, snow, avalanches, landslides, erosion, earthquakes, volcanoes, man-made and technological, as well as risk assessment.

The journal’s objectives are also to endorse and align with the UN sustainable development goals 6 (Clean Water and Sanitation), 11 (Sustainable Cities and Communities), and 15 (Life on Land).

  • Presents original research work on all aspects of natural hazards of all origins – atmospheric, volcanic, seismic, oceanic and more
  • Coverage includes forecasting of catastrophic events, risk management, and the nature of precursors of natural and technological hazards
  • 97% of authors who answered a survey reported that they would definitely publish or probably publish in the journal again
