This year has been one of the most costly years ever recorded for natural disasters. Researchers now studying these events are trying to better understand their evolution and impact to help minimize losses from future disasters.
In “Rapid Response to Natural Hazard Mitigation,” a special Union session at the AGU Fall Meeting in San Francisco, researchers studying natural hazards will discuss the current status of hazard mitigation and reveal how new technologies are being applied to earthquake, tsunami, and volcanic monitoring programs to reduce future losses.
