Scientists predict the earth is facing 40-to-60 years of climate change, even if emissions of carbon dioxide and other global warming gases stopped today. One inevitable consequence of the greenhouse gases already in the atmosphere will be an increase in the frequency and severity of natural disaster events. Global Warming, Natural Hazards, and Emergency Management documents the imperative need for communities to prepare for the coming effects of climate change and provides a series of in-depth, road-tested recommendations on how to reduce risks for communities and businesses.
After the large-scale disasters that we have witnessed in the recent past, it has become apparent that complex and coordinated emergency management systems are required for efficient and effective relief efforts. Such management systems can only be developed by involving many scientists and practitioners from multiple fields.
This guide is intended to establish authoritative guidance on the application of
GIS in civil protection, to assist users in the specification, acquisition and
maintenance of a GIS and to stimulate debate in the user community about
the future development and application of GIS and related technologies.
The primary audience is anticipated to be staff in Category One responders
identified in the Civil Contingencies Act 2004, most notably in Local Authority
Emergency Planning Units.
Emergency Planning is a critical component of every facility’s mission to provide a safe
environment for its residents, staff, patrons and visitors. The key to successful emergency
response lies in the details of preparedness. Generic (one-size fits all) guidelines for emergency
response are insufficient. Our safety in an emergency depends on the careful, detailed planning
and training that goes on well before an emergency occurs and that is specific to each facility.

On February 28, 2003, the President issued Homeland Security Presidential Directive 5 (HSPD–5), “Management of Domestic Incidents,” which directed the Secretary of Homeland Security to develop and administer a National Incident Management System (NIMS). This system provides a consistent...
In fiscal year 2001, Congress allocated funds for NIOSH to establish a new program for personal protective technology research to protect the nation’s miners, firefighters and other emergency responders, and health care, agricultural, and industrial workers. To carry out this research, NIOSH formed the National Personal Protective Technology Laboratory (NPPTL).
We wish to acknowledge with grateful appreciation the many services provided by the American Medical
Association, through the Committee on Disaster Medical Care, Council on National Security, Board of
Trustees and staff, in the preparation of this handbook.
From the inception of studies to determine emergency health techniques and procedures, the Association gave
valuable assistance and support.

Heart disease causes 45% of the deaths that occur among U.S. firefighters while
they are on duty. We examined duty-specific risks of death from coronary heart
disease among on-duty U.S. firefighters from 1994 to 2004.
We reviewed summaries provided by the Federal Emergency Management Agency
of the deaths of all on-duty firefighters between 1994 and 2004, except for deaths
associated with the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

The global population of persons aged 60
and over is rising dramatically – especially
in regions that experience the greatest risks
of natural or conflict-related emergencies.
Headlines of the plight of older persons
during the European heat wave of 2003
and Hurricane Katrina in the USA in 2005
shocked the world. In developing countries,
their situation is generally much less
widely-known and their needs and contributions
have been largely invisible. But
this is changing.
E-business research is currently one of the most active research areas. With the rapid advancement in information technologies, e-business is growing in significance and is having a direct impact upon ways of doing business. As e-business becomes one of the most important areas in organizations, researchers and practitioners need to understand the implications of many technological and organizational changes taking place.
Remote sensing has been defined as the detection, recognition, or evaluation of
objects by means of distant sensing or recording devices. In recent decades, remote
sensing technology has emerged to support data collection and analysis methods of
potential interest and importance in forest management. Historically, digital remote
sensing developed quickly from the technology of aerial photography and photointerpretation
science. In forestry, information extracted visually from aerial photographs
is well-understood, well-used, and integrated with field surveys.
Learn the fundamentals, practices and models of intellectual capital management with this essential resource. Providing a business-oriented, critical review of the definitions, practices, tools and models that are available today, its approach enables you to understand and retain the cutting-edge issues in the emerging field of intellectual capital management.
Nermien Al-Ali began her Intellectual Property (IP) career as the Managing Attorney of the IP
Department of one of Egypt’s leading international business law firms, Ibrachy & Dermarkar.
Then she counseled multinational clients on local and international IP laws and treaties. Her business
experience encouraged her to embark on researching models for managing IP and other
intellectual capital, leading to her teaching career.
The eight studies presented in this volume are put together to provide
a new insight into the design of risk-management models in emerging
markets. The objective is to identify the specific characteristics
of emerging markets and specify the most appropriate methods of
risk management that suits those markets. The chapters report on
empirical studies carried out on a number of countries in Asia, Eastern
Europe, North Africa and other emerging markets in various continents.
