   schema:reviewBody ""The World Atlas of Natural Hazards presents an authoritative yet accessible picture of the perils our planet and our society currently face, and a view of the range and scale of threats that may be expected in the new century and beyond. The Atlas incorporates a narrative that is driven by maps, images and graphics to paint portraits of natural hazards in space and time, the manner in which they impinge upon our society, and what we can do to avoid, mitigate, or manage their worst excesses. New research that sheds light on processes and mechanisms is addressed, along with established and innovative methodologies designed to limit the impact of natural hazards and reduce associated risk. The book opens with an introduction to the historical development of hazard and risk mapping and closes with a sober assessment of prospects for the future."--Jacket." ;
