This course will focus on several of the major types of natural hazards, and analyze their causes, impacts, and mitigation strategies. We will learn about agencies in the United States which are responsible for hazards planning, warnings, and information. Technical skills feature hazard mapping using ArcView, a widely used GIS software package, and Landsat Thematic Mapper data. Multidisciplinary reading and analysis are a large part of this course; material will come from texts, journals, technical papers, and the Internet.
