Time Nature s Extremes Book Excerpt:

In March 2011 the eyes of the world turned to the Pacific, where an earthquake and tsunami devastated cities along Japan's northern coasts only weeks after a major earthquake caused billions of dollars in damages in Christchurch, New Zealand. At the same time, Haiti was still reeling from the January 2010 earthquake that killed more than 300,000 people and the airline industry was still recovering from the 2010 eruption of a volcano in Iceland that sent clouds of ash billowing across Europe, disrupting global air travel for weeks. Now TIME explores the science behind the powerful forces that create such natural disasters in an updated edition of its classic 2006 volume Nature's Extremes. Here are the tectonic forces that breed earthquakes, volcanoes and tsunamis .... the powerful weather patterns that create deadly hurricanes, tornadoes and wildfires ... and a host of other natural nightmares, from deadly mudslides to avalanches, solar flares to dust storms. Filled with galleries of fascinating, sometimes mind-boggling, photographs and featuring the informative graphics that are a hallmark of the magazine, Nature's Extremes documents the destructive power of nature at its most deadly. It is a must-read for anyone concerned with the future of our planet. TIME will donate a portion of the proceeds from this volume to organizations working to aid victims of Japan's 2011 earthquake and tsunami.

SUMMARY The Disaster Profiteers How Natural Disasters Make The Rich Richer And The Poor Even Poorer By John C Mutter Book Excerpt:

* Our summary is short, simple and pragmatic. It allows you to have the essential ideas of a big book in less than 30 minutes. As you read this summary, you will learn that one of the consequences of natural disasters is to make the rich even richer and the poor even poorer. You will also learn that : the Burmese military junta used Cyclone Nargis to consolidate its power; most of the victims of Hurricane Katrina were black, poor and elderly; new Orleans is the second most unequal city in the United States; we often overreact emotionally to natural disasters; the 2010 earthquake in Port-au-Prince almost entirely spared the wealthy neighborhoods; social sciences are crucial to understanding and putting into perspective the consequences of natural disasters. The author of "Disasters Profiteers", John C. Mutter, is a seismologist and professor at Columbia University in New York. He therefore speaks with full knowledge of the facts when he talks about natural disasters. In his book, he discusses the social consequences of natural disasters. He studies how cyclones, typhoons, hurricanes, tsunamis and other earthquakes contribute to deepening inequalities, allowing a small fraction of the population, whom he calls "profiteers", to take advantage of these calamities to consolidate their power and wealth. A healthy work, which makes us look at natural disasters in an entirely new light. *Buy now the summary of this book for the modest price of a cup of coffee!

Natural Hazards Book Excerpt:

Natural Hazards: Earth Processes as Hazards, Disasters and Catastrophes, Fourth Edition, is an introductory-level survey intended for university and college courses that are concerned with earth processes that have direct, and often sudden and violent, impacts on human society. The text integrates principles of geology, hydrology, meteorology, climatology, oceanography, soil science, ecology and solar system astronomy. The book is designed for a course in natural hazards for non-science majors, and a primary goal of the text is to assist instructors in guiding students who may have little background in science to understand physical earth processes as natural hazards and their consequences to society. Natural Hazards uses historical to recent examples of hazards and disasters to explore how and why they happen and what we can do to limit their effects. The text's up-to-date coverage of recent disasters brings a fresh perspective to the material. The Fourth Edition continues our new active learning approach that includes reinforcement of learning objective with a fully updated visual program and pedagogical tools that highlight fundamental concepts of the text. This program will provide an interactive and engaging learning experience for your students. Here's how: Provide a balanced approach to the study of natural hazards: Focus on the basic earth science of hazards as well as roles of human processes and effects on our planet in a broader, more balanced approach to the study of natural hazards. Enhance understanding and comprehension of natural hazards: Newly revised stories and case studies give students a behind the scenes glimpse into how hazards are evaluated from a scientific and human perspective; the stories of real people who survive natural hazards, and the lives and research of professionals who have contributed significantly to the research of hazardous events. Strong pedagogical tools reinforce the text's core features: Chapter structure and design organizes the material into three major sections to help students learn, digest, and review learning objectives.

Tsunami Education Protection and Preparedness Penerbit USM Book Excerpt:

Since the 2004 Andaman Tsunami, we have been constantly reminded about the reported threats of earthquakes and tsunamis worldwide. The recent earthquake in Padang, Indonesia and the tsunami in Samoa Islands in 2009 as well as the large destructive earthquake in Haiti in 2010 reinforce the perceived threats. This timely series of the South China Sea Tsunami Workshop (SCSTW) was first organized by Academia Sinica Taipei, Taiwan on 5–7 December 2007 to promote community awareness and preparedness as well as scientific research on tsunami early warning systems and related hazards, hoping to achieve tsunami resilient communities. The Second SCSTW was organized by Shanghai Jiao Tong University on 1–3 December 2008 in Shanghai. This proceedings book contains a collection of 46 articles selected among 69 articles presented in the Third SCSTW held on 3–5 November 2009 in Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM), Pulau Pinang. This collection of selected articles explores a variety of issues related to tsunami as well as other natural disasters such as earthquakes, storm surge and landslide. The proceedings consists of two books, with the first book focusing on tsunami simulation for impact assessment, while the second book covers education, protection and preparedness to face tsunami and other natural disasters. The contributors of the articles in the proceedings come from differing academic and professional background including but not limited to engineering, mathematics, physics, biology, geography, environmental and marine sciences, sustainable studies, education, humanities and architecture. It is the fervent hope of the Editors that future SCSTWs will continue the tradition and aspiration of the past workshops. Universiti Sains Malaysia, Penerbit Universiti Sains Malaysia

Asia s Response to Climate Change and Natural Disasters Book Excerpt:

CSIS scholars examine how Asia as region is responding to the nontraditional and transboundary security threats of climate change and natural disasters, and what it means for the evolution of regional institutions to meet future challenges.The assessment looks broadly at two areas of nontraditional security cooperation in Asia: (1) climate change, including both the domestic political factors in Asia and the regional strategies for securing low-carbon pathways in anticipation of coordinated efforts to ameliorate climate change; and (2) regional approaches to disaster management. The volume concludes with an inventory of the structures for joint action in Asia and draws on case studies to assess the utility of existing and emerging institutions as the United States and the region seek greater cooperation on traditional and nontraditional security challenges.Although Asia lacks, and is not likely to develop, a single umbrella organization such as the EU or NATO, the study concludes that the region's patchwork of overlapping institutions can work to address problems in response to local environmental hazards and natural disasters but also to other security threats. Responses are effective when there is consensus on common threats and interests and when individual governments are willing to take on responsibility for forging collective action.Looking ahead, particularly with respect to U.S. policy, we believe that U.S. role will continue to be critical in supporting the region's response to many of the natural disasters it will face. At the same time, the United States should seek to focus Asia's attention increasingly on the long-term threat of climate change and other slow-onset disasters. As the authors demonstrate, not only is the region expected to be a major victim of the consequences of climate change, but it is also a source of the threat itself. If the twenty-first century is the Asian century, how the United States conducts itself as an Asian power will say much about its status as the critical actor in global affairs. The success of the United States in engaging with regional institutions will say much about how Asian states view the United States and its contribution to regional peace and stability. Overestimating the breadth and reach of the emerging regional architecture would be unwise. Underestimating the role of regional institutions, however, has the potential to unseat the United States in its status as the guarantor of Asia's security. This volume presents at least one effort to estimate the limits and aspirations of Asia's evolving regional architecture in a real-world context.
