    Flood risk assessment at the regional scale: Computational challenges and the monster of uncertainty (1) EGU General Assembly , Vienna, Austria, April Session HS/NH Hydroclimatic extremes under change: advancing the science and implementation in hazard prevention and control.   The paper proposes a methodology for quantitative landslide risk assessment for regional-scale analysis. Each component of risk, i.e., hazard, vulnerability, and consequence analysis, is quantitatively assessed. The developed landslide risk assessment methodology is tested in Kumluca watershed, in Bartın, Turkey. Geographic information systems and remote Cited by:

BibTeX; EndNote; by: Application examples at city and regional scale have provided the necessary validation of the methodology and are also included in the book. The present volume, with its companion volume on fragility functions, represent a significant step forward in the seismic vulnerability and risk assessment of complex interacting urban and regional systems.

    It introduces the fields of ecological risk assessment (ERA) and economic analysis and discusses their application to the practice of watershed management. The book presents a general framework for the integration of ERA and economic analysis to improve environmental management in a diversity of watersheds. Provide regional-scale, spatially explicit information on the extent and distribution of both stressors and sensitive resources. Develop and evaluate techniques to integrate information on exposure and effects so that relative risk can be assessed and management actions can be prioritized.

The risk due to natural hazards is usually assessed in physical terms by estimating the losses they may cause. Nevertheless, the risk assessment can involve other aspects like the lack of economic and social development, management deficiencies and inability of the society to respond and recover in case of a hazard event.
