Earthquakes and other Natural Hazards

Earthquakes cannot be predicted — although scientists are working on it! Interest in the possibility of a dependable method for earthquake prediction has increased among the scientific community. Other hazards, though can be predicted, cause tremendous damage to life and livelihood alike. On many occasions it has been displayed just how devastating and powerful they can be. Studies to advance the understanding and prediction of hurricanes and other tropical weather and research based on a combination of computer models, theories, and observations, (with emphasis on data obtained with research aircrafts) is continually growing for more accurate prediction of hurricanes. Wildfires may be caused naturally or due to human activity. Wildfire smoke contains a number of atmospheric pollutants that can damage human health including carbon monoxide, atmospheric mercury, ozone, volatile organic compounds and fine particulate matter. Changes in land planning (where people put homes), developing strong fire resistant materials, and landscaping with fire-resistant vegetation may prove useful in reducing fire damage. Research and development for the creation of new techniques, strategies, and applications to better estimate and forecast precipitation amounts and locations help in predicting flash floods. Novel tools using a combination of observing systems ranging from radars to satellites on a national scale help to produce better precipitation and flood forecasts.

The global natural hazard sensing and monitoring market was valued at $11.1 billion in 2010. This market reached $11.3 billion in 2011 and is expected to reach $15.3 billion in 2016, a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.5% between 2011 and 2016.

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.
This track encompasses 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.
