About this Research Topic
This Research Topic aims to collect both Original Research and Review articles addressing the state-of-the-art advances of theories and methodologies in all types of natural hazards. Studies underlining the compound and chained relationship between different hazards are in particular welcomed. Potential themes include, but are not limited to:
• Mechanisms of formation, evolution, and disaster process of multiple natural hazards as well as their compound and chained natural hazards
• Model and scenario development regarding whole process control, chain breaking of key nodes, and precise prevention of major natural hazard chains
• Methods and applications on detection, identification, database establishment, and spatiotemporal evolution law analysis of natural hazard sources
• Technologies on intelligent early warning and refined risk assessment of compound and chained natural hazards.
• Rescue equipment and investigation of post-disaster community reconstruction
Keywords: natural hazard, compound and chained relationship, formation and evolution mechanism, risk assessment, early warning, model building, chain breaking, database establishment, rescue equipment, post-disaster reconstruction
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.
