Natural hazards can have catastrophic impacts. Natural Hazards Research promotes communication between the various fields that have an interest in natural disasters and catastrophic events, with the goal of raising awareness and improving detection and response.
The journal covers multiple disciplines in natural and social sciences, emphasizing new theories, techniques, methods and case studies. It also promotes the integration and interaction of multiple scientific disciplines, including geology, geophysics, geochemistry, petrology, geodesy and instrumentation.
The journal welcomes submissions exploring all kinds of hazards: geological, atmospheric, climatological, meteorological, oceanographic, hydrological, and ecological. Papers on space weather and space radiation are also welcome. Topics covered include, but are not limited to:
- The mechanisms and nature of related hazards
- Disaster detection, monitoring, and early warning
- Geospace observation for natural hazards
- Disaster vulnerability, hazard, and risk assessment and management
- Prevention and prediction of disasters
- High-teches for disaster mitigation and reduction
- Natural Hazards and human society
