Mitigation of Flood Hazard on Alluvial Fans
A number of investigators have suggested that the limits of the traditional, stochastic, one-dimensional model of alluvial fan flooding have been reached and that there are one- and two-dimensional...

A Framework for Sanitation and Health Risk Assessment
This paper summarizes some historical, cultural, and operational responses to risk. Zero risk and zero pollution ideas developed as arguably escapist reactions to stresses of economic,...

Glacier-Generated Floods and Debris Flows
Sudden release of glacially impounded water causes catastrophic floods, known as outburst floods, and ocasionally spawn debris flows that pose significant hazards in mountainous areas....

Preparation of Notification Models Using Continuous Modeling Techniques
