Themes & Hazard Types


Conference Themes | Hazard Types

Conference Themes:

Code Themes Description
A Natural hazards in the megacity The physical (e.g., early warning, monitoring, scenarios, precursors), and physical-social complexities of natural hazards in megacities.(...more info)
B Transient and long-term effects of catastrophic perturbations The long-term effects, impacts and legacy to the environment and human systems after a natural hazard event, particularly health impacts.(...more info)
C Hazard development under a changing climate Documented local and regional changes of geohazard occurrence and likelihood due to changing climatic conditions and anticipation of future hazard development based on climate models and mechanistic understanding of hazardous processes.(...more info)
D Multi-hazard interactions (cascades) One hazard triggering or increasing the probability of another hazard occurring (documenting case examples, quantifying causal links, hazard cascades, risk and stakeholder awareness of that risk).(...more info)
E Black swans and grey swan events In the context of hazards, a ‘black swan’ event is a truly unpredicted event that has a major impact and a ‘grey swan’ event a highly unlikely event that can be forecast with a degree of confidence.(...more info)
F Communications Communications before, during and after a natural disaster (including education, policy-science interface, uncertainty, scenarios).(...more info)
G General Contributions We encourage interested participants to choose which theme(s) is/are most appropriate for your presentation. However, if your work does not fit into any of the given themes, but still relevant to “New Dimensions of Natural Hazards in Asia”, you should select the general session.(...more info)
