In recent years, there have been frequent landslides, rockfalls, debris flows, and other geological disasters, which have resulted in a large number of casualties and loss of property. To reduce the impact of these events, early identification, monitoring, early warning and emergency response are important. The detailed analysis and report of major geological disaster cases, along with in-depth scientific research, can provide valuable experience for dealing with these incidents, and support the development of more effective disaster mitigation measures and response plans.
These include, but are not limited to:
- Reviews on the research of geological hazards
- Detailed reports of major geological disasters
- Formation and evolution of major geological disasters
- Early identification, monitoring and early warning of major geological disasters
- Disaster mechanisms of major geological disasters
- Emergency response and disposal of major geological disasters
Deadline for submission: 30 September 2021
Manuscripts should be submitted online; please choose article type: VSI: Major geological disasters and reduction.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously or be under consideration for publication elsewhere.
Ensure that you mention the Special Issue Climate Change Risk and Governance call for papers in your cover letter. All manuscripts will be peer reviewed. Manuscripts will be published online immediately on acceptance.
