A Decision Support System for Emergency Management of Critical Infrastructures Subjected to Natural Hazards
Natural hazards might damage elements of Critical Infrastructures and produce perturbations on the delivered services. In addition, (inter)dependency phenomena interconnecting infrastructures, may amplify impacts through cascading effects. In this paper, we present a Decision Support System (DSS) aiming at predicting the possible effects of natural hazards on the services provided by critical infrastructures. The system employs modeling and simulation techniques to forecast the effects of natural hazards on critical infrastructures services.
