Geological Hazard. Geological hazard is one of the main types of natural disasters, and historically it has brought endless pain to humans, leaving many painful memories, so it is the environmental issues that are of the most concern to people. From: Marine Geo-Hazards in China, Related terms: Gas Hydrate; Continental Shelf; Coastal Environment. Marine Geo-Hazards in China, the first book to focus specifically on potential marine geological hazards in China, includes 19 chapters with varying focus on key issues surrounding the topic. Early chapters discuss the historical background, research progress, and geological environments in China's sea area.

Geological Hazards: Earthquakes, Tsunamis, Volcanoes, Avalanches, Landslides, Floods; revised 2nd Edition Bolt, B.A., W.L. Horn, G.A. Macdonald, Price Range: $ - $ Geological Hazards is the first book to consider both natural and man-made disasters in a single volume. All major geological hazards are examined, including: volcanic activity earthquakes mass movements, soil creep, landslides problem soils such as quicksands and expansive clays river, marine, wind action and control soil erosion and.

  Climate Forcing of Geological Hazards provides a valuable new insight into how climate change is able to influence, modulate and trigger geological and geomorphological phenomena, such as earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanic eruptions and landslides; ultimately increasing the risk of natural hazards in a warmer world. Taken together, the chapters build a Pages: Geology and geological hazards of the Vancouver region, southwestern British Columbia./.

Geological Hazards is the first book to consider both natural and man-made disasters in a single volume. All major geological hazards are examined. All major geological hazards are examined.

It presents a state-of-the art survey for students on civil engineering and physical geography courses, as well as researchers and practicing civil engineers/5(2). From tidal waves and sandstorms to lava flows and glaciers, natural geological processes are often hazardous to human life.

This book examines the scientific principles behind these processes, explaining how and why they pose a frequent threat. Twelve chapters cover such topics as: • Earthquakes • Volcanic Geological Hazards book • Tsunami • Mass wastingCited by: Geological Hazards: A Sourcebook.

From tidal waves and sandstorms to lava flows and glaciers, natural geological processes are often hazardous to human life. This book examines the scientific principles behind these processes, explaining how and why they pose a frequent threat.

In this book we present a summary account of hazards which nowadays are usually classified as geological: earthquakes, faulting, tsunamis, seiches, vol­ canoes, avalanches, rock and soil slides, differential settlement and liquefaction of soil, and : Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.

Geologic hazards pose the greatest threat to human safety for any geotechnical Geological Hazards book, but it is ultimately the engineer's ability to recognize and cope with these hazards that will determine the safety of life and property.

As geologic hazards go, volcanic eruptions make for good photo ops, with fiery red lava and large ash clouds flowing from mountaintops. The nature of a volcanic eruption and, thus, the hazards it presents vary depending on the type of volcano. Geologic hazards cause billions of dollars in property damage and kill thousands of people every year.

The damage is usually not covered by your homeowners insurance policy. Geological Hazards is the first book to consider both natural and man-made disasters in a single volume. All major geological hazards are examined.

It presents a state-of-the art survey for students on civil engineering and physical geography courses, as well as researchers and practicing civil engineers. A geologic hazard is one of several types of adverse geologic conditions capable of causing damage or loss of property and life.

These hazards consist of sudden phenomena and slow phenomena: Sudden phenomena include: avalanches (snow, rock, or air & snow) and its runout. earthquakes and earthquake-triggered phenomena such as tsunamis. Geological Hazards: Their Assessment, Avoidance and Mitigation by Fred G. Bell.

The U.S. Geological Survey National Crustal Model (NCM) is being developed to assist with earthquake hazard and risk assessment by supporting estimates of ground shaking in response to an earthquake. The period-dependent intensity and duration of shaking depend upon the three-dimensional seismic velocity, seismic attenuation, and density.

Geological hazards. Geology in everyday life. Geology-relevant data. So that the widest possible audience has access to geology-relevant data, the Swiss Geological Survey published an overview in book form.

The reasons for poor or nonexistent land-use policies that minimize the perceived or actual danger and damage potential from geologic hazards are many and encompass the political, cultural, and financial complexities and intricacies of communities.

The book is aimed first at the general reader who is interested in studying the history of such hazards and examining ways that risk can be reduced even if all dangers cannot be eliminated.

We also hope that the book will be useful to college students in introductory courses in geology, engineering, geography, country and urban planning, and in. Get this from a library!
