Primary Audience: The audience for the book is potentially vast, and it may include: (i) scientists interested in the theoretical and mathematical (statistical) treatment of extreme events and their consequences, including the analysis of time series of extreme events, (ii) geophysicists and geologists, interested in specific natural hazards and their effects, including comparisons between different hazards and their consequences, (iii) scientists and practitioners interested in the economics of extreme natural events, and (iv) scientists and practitioners interested in forecasting and mitigating the consequences of extreme events.

It will also serve advanced undergraduates, graduate students and professionals (postdoctoral fellows and research scientists) in geosciences specializing in the fields of climate dynamics and experimental and theoretical geophysics. It could also serve as a reference book for seismologists, meteorologists and earth scientists. It may serve as a textbook for graduate students in the field of geodynamics, natural hazards, and climate change. 

Secondary Audience:
Seismologists, geoengineers and public policy makers could greatly benefit from the content of this book.
