Abstract: Natural hazards such as earthquakes, floods, volcanoes and tsunamis constitute a significant source of risk in several regions of the world and are often associated with widespread loss of human lives, damage to the qualities of the environment as well as to property and infrastructure. It is hence a great challenge for the engineering profession to provide methods and tools enhancing decision making for the purpose of efficient management of natural hazards.
