  • Damage caused by natural disasters in Slovenia and globally between 1995 and 2010
  • Damage ; Natural hazards ; Slovenia ; Society-environment relationship ; Vulnerability
  • This paper describes damage caused by natural disasters in Slovenia and globally between 1995 and 2010. The introductory chapter is devoted to the interpretation of the term damage and related terms, and the vulnerability of society to natural
  • disasters. The second chapter presents a detailed analysis of the damage and casualties, and highlights the regional differences that result from natural or social conditions. The third chapter deals in detail with the direct damage caused by natural
  • Landscape damage by skiing at Schauinsland in the Black Forest, Germany
  • Baden-Württemberg ; Black Forest ; Damage valuation ; Environmental degradation ; Germany ; Mountain ; Tourism
  • Ski runs and lifts in the Black Forest have removed vegetation cover and topsoil and caused soil erosion and solifluction. Damage varies with snow depth and duration of snow cover. Summer grazing and slope grading construction exacerbates
  • Télvégi utburkolatkar vizsgalata a Kisvarda-Tornyospalca utvonalon. (Frost damage to road pavement after winter on the road between Kisvarda and Tornyospalca)
  • During the winter of 1980-81 serious damage occurred to public roads in Hungary. Weather, the properties of road fill material, the traffic of heavy vehicles and the quality of pavement have been proved to be major factors influencing the extent
  • of damage. (DLO).
  • Flood and landslide damage-repair cost correlations for Kingston, Jamaica
  • Data on the costs of damage-repair related to floods and landslide are correlated with climatic phenomenon for the period 1910-1965. (MPM).
  • Trampling damage to vegetation and soil cover within the Burren National Park, Mullach Mor, Co. Clare
  • Between 1986 and 1992, surveillance of three selected paths revealed a pattern of increasing damage to vegetation and soil cover. An attempt was made to quantify the extent of trampling damage, and to examine possible causes of observed spatial
  • variation in the severity of damage. Some implications for management policy within the National Park are explored.

  • This paper describes the styles and intensities of hurricane damage and provides information on the factors that increase damage from wind, storm surge and inland flooding. It is based on both published studies of Hurricane Andrew (1992), Iniki
  • (1992), Bob (1991) and Hugo (1989) plus ground and aerial studies of the damage effects of those storms by the A. Information is synthesized from a number of different cognate fields because a holistic view of hurricane damage is essential if we
  • are to minimize loss of life and structural damage in future hurricanes.
  • Temporal changes in extremely damaging storms
  • Catastrophe ; Climatic warming ; Damage ; Hurricane ; Interannual variability ; Precipitation ; Rainstorm ; United States of America ; Vulnerability ; Weather type
  • Records of extremely damaging storms in the United States during the years 1949-2006 were assessed to define their temporal distribution. A change in climate due to global warming may lead to more weather extremes, including storms. The aim
  • of this study was to learn if the frequency of highly damaging storms had increased. The number of storms at both loss levels has increased dramatically since 1990, and storm-related losses also increased. Much of the increased loss and greater storminess
  • more vulnerable to storm damages.
  • New possibilities for assessing the damage caused by natural disasters in Slovenia : the case of the Real Estate Record
  • Alps (The) ; Damage ; Earthquake ; Estimation ; Land ; Land value ; Landslide ; Mass movement ; Natural hazards ; Slovenia ; Thematic mapping
  • This article presents the suitability of the Real Estate Record – a web application of the Surveying and Mapping Authority of the Republic of Slovenia – for assessing the damage caused by natural disasters. We performed an analysis for the village
  • of Čezsoča, which was devastated by an earthquake in 1998 (M 5.6). We compared the data on earthquake damage with the data on the real-estate value. Such comparisons make it possible to establish the damage potential of future natural disasters. - (IKR)
  • A new approach to the assessment and delimitation of environmentally damaged areas in the Czech Republic
  • New criteria and methodology for geographical delimitation and differentiation of environmentally damaged areas are proposed. This approach is based on ecological, social and health load assessment on the municipality area level by means of 27
  • Remote sensing and landscape metrics to identify and to assess site-specific damage in cultivation systems of Central Europe
  • Agricultural damage ; Agriculture ; Methodology ; Remote sensing ; Satellite imagery
  • Accounting for variability in commercial flood damage estimation
  • Australia ; Damage valuation ; Estimation ; Flood ; Impact ; Natural hazards ; New South Wales ; Risk perception
  • Forest condition and forest damages. Contribution of remote sensing to different approaches
  • The development of inventory activities in the field of forest damage assessment and monitoring during the last decade in Germany and the present state are recorded as far as remote sensing has been involved. Any forest inventory is influenced
  • ; vegetation and vegetation-damage monitoring in urban forestry; sampling approaches for large areas.
  • Progress in recent study of drought, flood and waterlogging damages in China
  • Agricultural damage ; Catastrophe ; China ; Drought ; Flood ; Historical geography ; Methodology ; Monsoon ; Natural hazards ; Preventive measure
  • The study of Drought, Flood and Waterlogging Damage (DFWD) aims at mainly solving 4 basic problems : 1) the change sequence in historical period; 2) the mechanism and trigger event; 3) the loss estimation; 4) the measures of prevention and control
  • Windgeschwindigkeit als Verstärkungsfaktor für Rauchschäden im Wald in Abhängigkeit von Waldaufbau und Relief. (The wind velocity as a factor increasing the smoke damages in forests and their dependence on structure of the forest and relief
  • High wind velocities increase smoke damage in forests. Measures against smoke damage in forests include the investigation of the influence of forest structure and relief on the wind velocity. The forest structure under investigation is step-shaped
  • Dynamic aspects of environmental damage in a multisector economy
  • Storm damage assessment using digitised aerial photographs : Eltham, New Zealand, 24-25 February 1986
  • Rock damage and regolith transport by frost : an example of climate modulation of the geomorphology of the critical zone
  • comprise rock detachment into the mobile layer, mobile regolith transport, and a channel incision or aggradation boundary condition. They extend this system into the deep critical zone by considering a weathering damage zone below the mobile regolith
  • in which rock strength is diminished. The AA. first discuss generic damage profiles in which appropriate length and damage scales govern profile shapes, and examine their dependence upon exhumation rate. They then introduce climate control through
  • the example of rock damage by frost-generated crack growth. Finally the AA. link the frost cracking damage model, a mobile regolith production rule in which rock entrainment is conditioned by the damage state of the rock, and a frost creep transport model
  • Flood damage analysis using multitemporal Landsat Thematic Mapper data
  • Actual and potential flood damage: a case study for urban Lismore, NSW, Australia
  • The development of forest damage. Control and prognosis on the basis of remote sensing data
  • Forest damage can be caused by three types of stress which exercise their influence by predisposing, causative and contributory factors. When using remote sensing data to monitor the development of forest damage it is necessary therefore not only
  • an inventory made of the actual condition of the forest of the Land of Brandenburg but also trends of damage progress shown.
