About this Research Topic
The Research Topic is focused upon modeling and impact assessment of cascading earthquake hazards, including mainshock ground shaking, aftershock, tsunami, liquefaction, and landslide. Innovative contributions related to the following research topics are welcome:
• Physical/probabilistic modeling and assessment of strong ground shaking (mainshock) and triggered aftershocks: e.g. time-dependent hazard and risk modeling, spatiotemporal variability/dependency of triggered events, and stochastic modeling for cascading scenarios.
• Cascading modeling of earthquake and tsunami, and their impact to buildings and infrastructure
• Earthquake and tsunami vulnerability assessment
• Cascading modeling of earthquake and liquefaction/landslide, and their impact to buildings and infrastructure
• Hazard and risk mitigation against cascading earthquake hazards: e.g. multi-hazards and risk mapping, design of earthquake and tsunami-proof structures, multi-hazards design of evacuation buildings, evacuation simulation with explicit consideration of cascading and time-dependent hazards
• Risk management strategies for cascading earthquake hazards and risks (including insurance and financial risk management)
Keywords: Earthquakes, Tsunamis, Geo-hazards, Multi-hazards, Disaster risk management, Resilience
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
