Contents:
Mapping Environments and Exposures of the World Mapping Earthquake Risk of the World Mapping Volcano Risk of the World Mapping Landslide Risk of the World Mapping Flood Risk of the World Mapping Storm Surge Risk of the World Mapping Sand-dust Storm Risk of the World Mapping Tropical Cyclone Wind Risk of the World Mapping Heat Wave Risk of the World Mapping Cold Wave Risk of the World Mapping Drought Risk (Maize) of the World Mapping Drought Risk (Wheat) of the World Mapping Drought Risk (Rice) of the World Mapping Forest Wildfire Risk of the World Mapping Grassland Wildfire Risk of the World Mapping Multi-hazard Risk of the World.
Summary: This is the first English-language atlas to systematically introduce the environment, hazard, vulnerability and risk mapping for 11 natural disasters, i.e. earthquake, volcano, landslide, flood, storm surge, sand-dust storm, tropical cyclone, heat wave, cold wave, drought and wildfire, and risk mapping for multi-hazard disaster in the world. The above 11 hazards are assessed and mapped at grid unit, comparable-geographic unit and national unit, and the multi-hazard is assessed and mapped at grid unit and national unit. The expected annual mortality and/​or affected population risks and expected annual economic loss and/​or affected property risk of 11 hazards and multi-hazard of the world at national level are unprecedentedly derived and ranked. The atlas can be a good reference for researchers and students in the field of natural disaster risk management and risk governance, and enterpriser and risk manager as well to understand the global natural disaster risk.
