Several types of dangerous phenomena (either natural or man-made) pose a serious risk in many parts of the world. A fundamental task in hazard evaluation includes the prediction of the area influenced by the hazardous phenomenon, of its evolution in space and time, and the understanding of triggering mechanisms. Vulnerability to a specific risk is a further issue that must be analyzed.
Innovative approaches to decreasing risks may range from modeling to monitoring, to land use planning and knowledge dissemination, to realizing remedial works. Studies describing innovative methods of monitoring, modeling and simulation (and related methods of calibration and validation, as well as of sensitivity analyses) are solicited. Comparative discussions on potential and limits of different approaches are also within the scope of this special issue.
If interested in submitting the results of your studies, please note that the deadline for manuscripts is 30 November 2010. Only high-quality papers, strictly related to the topic of the special issue and containing unpublished case studies and/or methods will be considered for publication. Manuscripts must be directly submitted via the Journal website at http://ees.elsevier.com/jpce/.
The corresponding author must first register at the same website. By using the personal codes (username and password) it will be possible to submit the manuscript. Authors must follow the formatting instructions available at the journal website, http://www.elsevier.com/wps/find/journaldescription.cws_home/413/authorinstructions. Upon submission, please remember to specify that your manuscript is intended for the special issue on “Disaster Risk Reduction”.
We look forward to receiving your manuscript.
