As modern society evolves, new types of hazards are introduced and consequently new research is needed to quantify these risks and prepare adequate mitigation strategies. Covering a series of important topics of current research interest and with practical applications, this book examines all aspects of risk analysis and hazard mitigation, ranging from specific assessment of risk to mitigation associated with both natural and anthropogenic hazards.
This volume of the Transactions of the Wessex Institute contains papers presented at the 5th International Conference on Risk Analysis . The conference offered the opportunity for the professionals involved in risk analysis to inform themselves on the progress made by their colleagues in this field, to be involved in discussions on key issues and challenges in risk analysis and to exchange views on various aspects.
The papers in this volume are divided into a series of sections dealing with: Estimation of risk; Hazard prevention, management and control; Methods and systems of safe ship operation (special session); Flood risk; Soil, water and air contamination; Security risk; Risk management and Network systems.
