Modern Dictionary of Natural Disasters

 
P.P. Singh (Editor) Sandhir Sharma (Editor)
Synopsis The Dictionary of Natural Disasters makes clear that there are links between global scale processes and local experiences of disaster, but underlies the difficulty of attributing blame for individual disasters on specific global pressures. It argues that action to reduce disaster needs to be coordinated at the local, national and global scales and that there is a need for greater integration across the physical and social sciences. In this context, the human rights agenda is seen as a way of moving disaster reduction efforts forward. This dictionary has been compiled by various authors and editors who have been working in the fields of engineering geology, hydrogeology, and geocryology for many years. It includes terminology widely accepted in English literature devoted to the study of natural disasters. Moreover, the dictionary includes the terms from such major disasters which are often used for describing geological processes and phenomena and assessing their effect on the environment. The dictionary includes all important terms and expressions and reflects the widely accepted terminological base with respect to the Natural Disaster. It is of particular interest to specialists engaged in the field of Natural Disaster and its management.
