Introduction: Disaster Risk Reduction in Indonesia: Progress, Challenges, and Issues
Djalante, R.Garschagen, M.Thomalla, F.Shaw, R.
Indonesia is amongst the countries with the highest disaster risk globally. This risk is driven by the country’s high exposure to a range of geophysical and hydro-meteorological ...
Using a process-based model of pre-eruptive seismic patterns to forecast evolving eruptive styles at Sinabung Volcano, Indonesia
McCausland, W. A.Gunawan, H.White, R. A.Indrastuti, N.Patria, C.Suparman, Y.Hendrasto, M.
Most volcanoes worldwide are not monitored in real-time; for those that are, patterns of pre-eruptive earthquakes coupled with conceptual models of magma ascent enable short-term f...
Adaptation to climate change: Using nighttime lights satellite data to explore human response to flood events
Mård, J.Di Baldassarre, G.
To better understand the impact of climate change, we need to uncover how (and to what extent) societies respond and adapt to it. Yet the dynamics resulting from two-way feedbacks ...
Scenario-based projections of future urban inundation within a coupled hydrodynamic model framework: A case study in Dongguan City, China
Wu, X.Wang, Z.Guo, S.Liao, W.Zeng, Z.Chen, X.
One major threat to cities at present is the increased inundation hazards owing to changes in climate and accelerated human activity. Future evolution of urban inundation is still ...
