NH51D:
Modeling of Natural Hazards: Advances and Applications Posters


Session ID#: 8980

Session Description:

The increasing availability and sophistication of modeling techniques provides  opportunities to assess the distribution and magnitude of a wide range of  natural hazards at varying  scales (i.e. local, regional and global), to better understand their controlling factors and mechanisms, and to predict future occurrences. Several modeling approaches are continuously being developed and applied to assess the susceptibility, hazards and risks associated with natural disasters across the globe. Many of these models are numerical, experimental, statistical, physical, and empirical in nature. The quality and applicability of these models are of concern to the researchers and the communities applying these models.

This session invites all studies on the advances, theories, and applications of models for natural hazards assessment.
