About this Research Topic
This Research Topic encompasses both the thematic and regional case studies to highlight the dynamicity of climate change, natural resources, landscape, water, river and agricultural ecosystems at various spatio-temporal scales including both theoretical and applied aspects and can be used as a guideline for future research. In nutshell, this Research Topic will provide both traditional and advanced geospatial technologies used in atmospheric, lithospheric, hydrospheric, biospheric and socio-economic contexts, on all spatial and temporal scales with respect to hazards and disasters and sustainable development and management for the future. This collection will be a very important product for point of view researchers, scientists, NGOs, academic personnel, policymakers and university people in hazards and disaster resilient, climate change, environmental sciences, geomorphologists, remote sensing, natural resources management, remote sensing, GIS, hydrologist and soil sciences.
This Research Topic focuses on the aspects of hazards and disasters related to natural resources, groundwater depletion, drought and flood occurrences, bank and gully erosion, water poverty, landslide, land use changes, deforestation, as well as touches on social problems of arsenicosis, the scope of SINDEI framework and solid waste management planning. . Our goal is to advance knowledge of the Geospatial Sciences, Remote Sensing & GIS and its interaction with the hazard, landscape, land use, water scarcity, forestry, digital modelling, artificial intelligence and environment and geospatial technologies for Sustainable Development.
We are looking for contributions covering the following topics:
• Application of SINDEI framework
• Recognition of groundwater stress zones using geospatial technologies and modelling
• Groundwater vulnerability assessment using DRASTIC model
• Modelling flood susceptibility using data-driven approaches
• Flood Hazard Zonation -A GIS-aided Multi-Criteria Evaluation (MCE)
• Flood vulnerability indices at varying spatial scales
• Impact of rainfall variability and anthropogenic activities on stream flow changes and water stress conditions
• Analytic hierarchy process applied to landslide susceptibility mapping
• Integrating the Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP) and the Frequency Ratio (FR)
• Model in Landslide Susceptibility Mapping
• The influence of land use/land cover variability and rainfall intensity in triggering landslides: a back analysis study via physically based models
Keywords: Hazard, disaster, vulnerability, risk reduction, sustainability, landslide, groundwater, flood, land use
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.
