Geophysical Hazards. This book brings together some of the most influential international scientists dealing with Natural Hazards and Society’s response to natural hazards. It recognizes that hazards, like poverty, will always be with us but that concerted and organized societal response can prevent a hazard becoming a disaster.

The book is designed for a course in natural hazards for non-science majors, and a primary goal of the text is to assist instructors in guiding students who may have little background in science to understand physical earth processes as natural hazards and their consequences to society.

Natural Hazards Data, Images and Education. NCEI archives and assimilates tsunami, earthquake and volcano data to support research, planning, response and mitigation. Long-term data, including photographs, can be used to establish the history of natural hazard occurrences and help mitigate against future events.
