This book shows how societies around the world have sought to reduce their vulnerability to storms through different levels of planning and legislation. It also examines how these societal responses to storm impacts can serve to exacerbate vulnerability.
Storms brings together leading international contributors to explore these issues, through a collection of papers arranged into sections devoted to Storm Science and
* Vulnerability
* Tropical Cyclones
* Extratropical Cyclones,
* Mesocale Convective Systems and Other Storms.
Detailed accounts of storms and their implications include incidents in USA, Canada, Cuba, Australia, India, Russia, Vietnam, Brazil and Mexico.
This is a definitive collection of both newly-written and previously-published material which provides a broad-reaching and thought-provoking account of storms and their environmental and societal impact.
