    Special Issue on

    Geological Disaster Response and Management


    A geological disaster occurs when natural geological processes impact on our activities, either through loss of life, injury, or economic loss. The Geological Survey has compiled a historical record of geological disasters from a wide range of sources over several years of research. In the course of archival research any natural hazard that might fall in the area of geological phenomena was noted. Purely weather-related phenomena mostly are excluded, but major storms that cause considerable damage and loss of life, especially amongst the fishing community probably are the most significant natural hazard in the Province. Many of the disasters noted are intimately associated with severe weather. Hazards noted include earthquakes, tsunamis, landslides, rockfalls, avalanches and flooding. The goal of this special issue is to provide a platform for scientists and academicians all over the world to promote, share, and discuss various new issues and developments in the area of geological disaster response and management.


    In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original research and review articles on exploring geological disaster response and management. In this special issue, potential topics include, but are not limited to:


    • Avalanches and landslides
    • Earthquakes and sinkholes
    • Volcanic eruptions and hydrological disasters
    • Meteorological disasters
    • Space disasters
    • Natural disaster forecast and measures


    Authors should read over the journal’s For Authors carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.


    Please kindly notice that the Special Issue” under your manuscript title is supposed to be specified and the research field “Special Issue - Geological Disaster Response and Management” should be chosen during your submission.


    According to the following timetable:
