EES 230 - Natural Disasters
Scientific Dimensions Of Natural Disasters
Prerequisite: LAC student with T1NS course or GER student

Natural disasters occur where and when destructive atmospheric, hydrologic, geologic and/or human-induced processes negatively impact people. Most such disasters are associated with large infrequent events such as hurricanes, ice storms, earthquakes, floods (etc.). The risk of damage caused by these phenomena varies greatly depending upon the specific destructive process and the infrastructure and populations impacted. As such, natural disasters are complex interactions between natural processes and human response systems. This course focuses on analyzing risk associated with hazards and exploring the scientific basis for several types of natural disasters. Topics examined focus on specific hazardous conditions and disasters associated with violent weather, internal and external geologic processes, hydrologic phenomena, and selected human activities.
