Beyond Houses: Architectural Thinking and Practice for Climate, Disaster and Forced Displacement Crises

Beyond Houses: Architectural Thinking and Practice for Climate, Disaster and Forced Displacement Crises by A. Nuno Martins, Carmen Mendoza-Arroyo, Liliane Hobeica, Jorge León, Adib Hobeica
English | PDF EPUB (True) | 2024 | 229 Pages | ISBN : 303161402X | 69.2 MB

This book delves into the complexities of urban crises, focusing on the efforts of researchers and practitioners who confront precarious housing and forced displacement. Originating from the 8th International Conference on Building Resilience (convened in November 2018 in Lisbon, Portugal), this book examines challenges across diverse contexts and geographies, including Chile, India, Kenya, Mexico, Portugal, and Syria. Structured in three parts, the book's 12 chapters address disaster prevention and recovery, humanitarian architecture, and issues related to housing, migration, and urban forced displacement. The narratives emphasize vulnerabilities, community-driven design, and cross-cultural perspectives, comprehensively reviewing global urban planning, slum upgrading, and incremental housing strategies. The contributions engage readers with practical insights for mitigating urban vulnerability and intellectual analyses that consider the complexities of life amid systemic injustices. Ultimately, the authors suggest integrating architectural practice with social work within communities to address intricate urban housing challenges.

Deadly Season: Analysis of the 2011 Tornado Outbreaks

Deadly Season: Analysis of the 2011 Tornado Outbreaks

Deadly Season: Analysis of the 2011 Tornado Outbreaks by Kevin M. Simmons , Daniel Sutter
English | PDF (True) | 2012 | 117 Pages | ISBN : 187822025X | 1.3 MB

In 2011, despite continued developments in forecasting, tracking, and warning technology, the United States was hit by the deadliest tornado season in decades. More than 1,200 tornadoes touched down, shattering communities and their safety nets and killing more than 500 people—a death toll unmatched since 1953. Drawing on the unique analysis described in their first book, Economic and Societal Impacts of Tornadoes, economists Kevin M. Simmons and Daniel Sutter here examine the factors that contributed to the outcomes of such tornadoes as the mid-April outbreak that devastated communities in North Carolina, the “Super Outbreak” across the southern and eastern United States in late April, and the single, mile-wide funnel that touched down in Joplin, Missouri, among others, in late May.

Recent Developments in Earthquake Seismology: Present and Future of Seismological Analysis

Recent Developments in Earthquake Seismology: Present and Future of Seismological Analysis

Recent Developments in Earthquake Seismology: Present and Future of Seismological Analysis by Rohtash Kumar, Raghav Singh, Shyam Kanhaiya, Satya Prakash Maurya
English | PDF EPUB (True) | 2024 | 202 Pages | ISBN : 3031475372 | 72.2 MB

The book presents earthquake source, wave propagation, site amplification, and other seismological studies including earthquake simulation, application of Artificial Neural Network (ANN) in seismology, earthquake early warning system, waveform inversion, moment tensor analysis, receiver function analysis, earthquake prediction, and earthquake early warning system applications. To minimize the losses due to an earthquake, it is better to understand the source properties, medium characteristics, site condition, and amplitude of a probable earthquake at a particular site. The evolutions of earthquake source models make it possible to understand the source dynamics. However, analysis of the source using a single-domain method does not provide a better understanding of the source dynamics. Therefore, this book combines methods from the earthquake spectrum to waveform inversion and joint inversion.

Risk, Uncertainty and Maladaptation to Climate Change: Policy, Practice and Case Studies

Risk, Uncertainty and Maladaptation to Climate Change: Policy, Practice and Case Studies by Anindita Sarkar, Nairwita Bandyopadhyay, Shipra Singh, Ruchi Sachan
English | PDF EPUB (True) | 2024 | 240 Pages | ISBN : 981999473X | 28.9 MB

This book focuses on integrated disaster risk reduction arising out of climate change and shows how communities build resilience through adaptive and transformative strategies at the local and global levels. It integrates disaster risk, uncertainty, and maladaptation to climate change with evidence from empirical research and a systematic review of existing studies. The book also proposes two important contributions, which makes it distinctive. First, it gives a systematic review of the literature to capture the changing context and concept of risk, uncertainty, and maladaptation to climate change. Second, it uses case studies from around the globe to demonstrate the ways that communities have fostered to build resilience to mitigate the impacts of climate change.

Geological and Geo-Environmental Processes on Earth by Arun Kumar Shandilya
English | EPUB | 2021 | 328 Pages | ISBN : 9811641218 | 228.7 MB

This edited volume dedicated to late Prof. P.S. Saklani addresses the multidisciplinary themes pertaining to role of tectonism and magmatism in Crustal Evolution and global distribution of metallic and non metallic mineral deposits. It gives valuable information on geodynamic evolution, structural, petrological, isotopic, metamorphic, geochemical and geochronological attributes of continental and oceanic crust and is challenging reassessments of the existing paradigms. It addresses the implication of magmatism, metallogeny and application of geochronological ages (U-Pb SHRIMP age, Lu-Hf isotopic system; detrital zircons).
