A natural disaster is a major adverse event resulting from natural processes of the Earth ; examples include floods , hurricanes , tornadoes , volcanic eruptions , earthquakes , tsunamis , storms , and other geologic processes.
The database is compiled from various sources, including UN agencies, non-governmental organisations, insurance companies, research institutes and press agencies. Skip to main content. Search form Search.
With the development of mining industry, the intensity of mining work is gradually increasing, which makes mine disasters occur during mining. In this study, the current situation of mineral resource exploitation region was analyzed, and the mine geological hazards caused by high-intensity mining were summarized, including debris flow, landslide and ground fissure. Study of the distribution characteristics of related geological hazards suggested that the area affected by surface collapse caused by ground fissures was the largest, while debris flows and landslide posed a great threat to life. In view of the potential safety hazards caused by geological hazards in mines, establishment of disaster information base and strengthening of measures for disaster prevention and control were proposed. Finally, mineral resources were protected to restore the environment.
It is also one of the most hazard-prone. Because of its steep terrain, high seismicity, fragile geological formation, and intense and highly variable precipitation, the HKH is especially vulnerable to floods, landslides, avalanches, and earthquakes well - established. More than one billion people are at risk of exposure to increasing frequency and intensity of natural hazards. Rising trends appear in the number of disasters reported, the numbers of people killed and affected, and the size of economic losses. This is due to various drivers including climatic change and environmental degradation.

Mountains are fragile ecosystems with global importance, providing key ecosystems services within mountainous areas but also for the lowlands. However.
The review examines mountain land risks, especially those that involve sudden, more or less localized bouts of damage and disasters. Geographers' studies to date have mainly dealt with natural hazards, emphasizing those like avalanches, large landslides or natural dams that are uniquely associated with mountain environments.
- Ничего. - Клянусь, - сказал. Она смотрела на него с недоумением. - Надеюсь, это не уловка с целью заставить меня скинуть платье. - Мидж, я бы никогда… - начал он с фальшивым смирением. - Знаю, Чед.
О Боже! - воскликнул он в ужасе.
