The phenomenon of hazards are caused by biological, geological seismic, hydrological or meteorological conditions or processes in the natural environment.

Today, society relies on science and technology, remote sensing and G.I.S. for reduction of risk from hazards.

The book is an outcome of the valuable contributions made by eminent scientists and research scholars who have been striving to develop alternative strategies, solutions and tools for environmental hazard identification and mitigation through research, screening monitoring and diagnosis varying form regional to global level. This book presents an integrated study of environmental hazards, problems, connections and solutions. The three integrated themes in this volume are-hazard's spatial distribution, risk assessment and approaches and techniques for mitigation. This edition would be of immense use to the policy-makers, environmentalists, ecologists, academician research scholars and people in general concerned with hazard, ecology and environment.
