NHESS encompasses: * The evolution of natural systems towards extreme conditions and the detection of precursors of such evolution. * The monitoring of rare events and the integration of measures for the understanding of spatial and temporal characteristics of rare natural phenomena. * The development of new techniques for the reduction of damage to human settlements and the impact of rare events on man-made structures. * The impact on the natural environment of interventions to reduce damage. * The scaling of spatial and dynamic behaviour. * The monitoring and integration of data in forecasting tools. * The impact of climate change in natural risks.
The journal will publish research articles, research and technical notes, book reviews, brief communications, letters and comments on papers published previously in NHESS. Interdisciplinary papers on theory, modelling methods and techniques, and measuring and monitoring in the following areas will be particularly welcome (the list is neither exhaustive, nor rank-ordered): * Agricultural Hazards; * Earthquake Hazards; * GIS and Databases for Natural Hazards and Risk Assessment; * Glacial Hazards; * Hydrological Hazards; * Landslides and Debris Flow; * Meteorological and Climatological Hazards; * Natural Hazards Monitoring; * Remote Sensing for Natural Hazards Assessment; * Risk Assessment; * Sea Hazards; * Snow Avalanches; * Socioeconomic and Management Aspects; * Tsunamis; * Volcanic Hazards; * Wildfire Hazards.
Contributions dealing with multidisciplinary aspects of natural hazards (i.e. meteorology and hydrology or hydrology and mass movements) are especially welcome.
