There are a variety of natural processes that affect our modern society. Hazards such as earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, hurricanes, forest fires, landslides, and the complex influence of climate change create significant economic and environmental problems that are often accompanied by great loss of life and damage to physical infrastructure. This course examines how these processes work and their effect on human society, how human activities influence the frequency and intensity of natural disasters, and possible methods of mitigation or prevention.
