This special issue aims to demonstrate that hazard research in geomorphology is most important over a range of scales and for different geomorphic processes. It reviews concepts, approaches, and applications addressing geomorphic events behaviour in a changing environment. All papers originate from the session S13 “Natural Disasters” held at the Sixth International Conference on Geomorphology, 2005 in Zaragoza, Spain. Each contribution is briefly introduced. In the final three paragraphs, the contributions are related to the three main geomorphic branches morphometry, morphodynamics, and morphoevolution.
The special issue has two foci: (1) to give an overview disaster related geomorphic analysis and (2) to demonstrate, based on case studies and applications, the possibilities and limitations of various techniques, and methods to assess geomorphic hazards. The contributions to this special issue cover a range of approaches including the theoretical basis of the subject, detailed studies...
