  • Natural Disasters and Disaster Prevention, as part of China’s S&T Progress Series, has 143 excellent Chinese articles on natural disaster research. This collection of articles involves the latest findings in natural disaster research supported by National Natural Science Foundation of China, National Key R&D Program of China and National Major Scientific Research Program of China. These articles involve the disaster examples such as 5.12 Wenchuan earthquake, 4.25 Nepal earthquake, Typhoon Maria and Typhoon Rammasun and comprehensively demonstrate the successful experience and countermeasures in dealing with major natural disasters in China. This book is a compilation of the English version of the selected Chinese articles and includes six chapters, with detailed introduction of the formation mechanisms, risk assessment, monitoring and warning, and disaster mitigation measures of six types of natural disasters: earthquake, drought, flood, typhoon, landslide and debris flow. It provides scientific and technical support for understanding the patterns of disaster occurrence, predicting the future disasters, and mitigating the harm caused by natural disasters.

  • LIU Jingnan, academician of Chinese Academy of Engineering and professor and doctoral supervisor at Wuhan University, has long been engaged in the theoretical and applied research of geodetic surveying and teaching.
