Natural Hazards - Books and Journals

Tornadoes, earthquakes or tsunamis: Many of the events that trigger natural hazards are dynamic and important processes in our environment. Without these natural phenomena, the earth's surface would be uninhabitable. Only through human intervention in nature can many natural phenomena have catastrophic consequences. Our specialist publications investigate the tectonic, meteorological and gravitational causes of natural hazards and present preventive solution models. International authors and scientists also analyse the influence of man on the development of natural hazards. Our publications include the journal Landslide, the book series Disaster Risk Reduction and the Encyclopedia of Earthquake Engineering.
