About the Journal
Calamity: A Journal of Disaster Technology and Engineering focuses on unique research on all facets of natural hazards, such as the prediction of catastrophic events, risk management, and the nature of natural and manmade hazard precursors. The effects on the environment are equally disastrous even if risks might come from a variety of sources and systems, including atmospheric, hydrologic, oceanographic, volcanologic, seismic, and neotectonic. This calls for tight collaboration between many scientific and operational disciplines in order to improve risk reduction. Risk assessment is included in the coverage of hazards in the atmospheric, climatological, oceanographic, storm surge, tsunami, flood, snow, avalanche, landslide, erosion, volcanic, man-made, and technology categories.
