Uncertainties are pervasive in natural hazards, and it is crucial to develop robust and meaningful approaches to characterize and communicate uncertainties to inform modeling efforts. In this monograph we provide a broad, cross-disciplinary overview of issues relating to uncertainties faced in natural hazard and risk assessment. We introduce some basic tenets of uncertainty analysis, discuss issues related to communication and decision support, and offer numerous examples of analyses and modeling approaches that vary by context and scope. Contributors include scientists from across the full breath of the natural hazard scientific community, from those in real-time analysis of natural hazards to those in the research community from academia and government. Key themes and highlights include:

  • Substantial breadth and depth of analysis in terms of the types of natural hazards addressed, the disciplinary perspectives represented, and the number of studies included
  • Targeted, application-centered analyses with a focus on development and use of modeling techniques to address various sources of uncertainty
  • Emphasis on the impacts of climate change on natural hazard processes and outcomes
  • Recommendations for cross-disciplinary and science transfer across natural hazard sciences

This volume will be an excellent resource for those interested in the current work on uncertainty classification/quantification and will document common and emergent research themes to allow all to learn from each other and build a more connected but still diverse and ever growing community of scientists.

Public țintă

Primary Market: Professors, researchers and graduate students in Geology whose research focuses on natural hazard real–time analysis and current researchers who are trying to investigate the existing uncertainties in modeling natural hazards like earthquakes, volcanoes, wildfires, weather hazards, so as to be well equipped and well prepared with making more accurate predictions of forthcoming natural disasters. Engineers, Statisticians, Geographers, Meteorologists, Earth and Environmental scientists, including petrologists, volcanologists, geophysicists are the primary audience. AGU Focus Groups and members: Atmospheric Sciences, Planetary Sciences, Natural Hazards, Hydrology, Global Environmental Change, Biogeosciences, Seismology and Volcanology/Geochemistry/Petrology
Secondary Market: Researchers in federal agencies like USGS, FEMA, NOAA, all volcano observatories, and public policy makers are the secondary market audience.
