There are thousands of examples in which the forces of nature have suddenly claimed human lives and destroyed the built environment on a large scale. This course will focus on the geospatial distribution, societal impact, mitigation strategies, and public policy associated with natural disasters such as earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, landslides, subsidence, global climate change, severe weather, coastal erosion, floods, mass extinctions, and asteroid (or meteor) impacts. Case histories of natural disasters and human responses will be highlighted. The causes, risks, effects, and prediction of natural disasters will also be introduced.
