The editors would like to thank the authors for their contributions to this first—but hopefully not last—Special Issue on Natech accidents. We would also like to express our gratitude to the reviewers Aniello Amendola, Raymond Burby, Sergio Contini, Valerio Cozzani, Bruno Debray, Adrian Gheorghe, Russell Jackson, Scira Menoni, Norio Okada, Andrew Petrow, Charles Scawthorn, Guna Selvaduray, Laura Steinberg and Michael Struckl. Without the help and dedication of the authors and reviewers, this Special Issue would not have been possible. A big thank you also goes to Coordinating Editor Vladimír Schenk and to Ayrene Dialogo from Springer who have most patiently and professionally guided us through the guest-editing of this Special Issue.
