Annotation -
The introduction includes general laws that are common for all types of natural hazards and risks. Topics such as
a definition of terms, types of natural hazards and risks and their mutual relations (conditionality), patterns of
temporal and spatial distribution, inventory issues, risk analysis and vulnerability of society are then discussed.
Subsequently, natural hazards are characterized as part of the development of the physical-geographical sphere
and in relation to global changes. The main part of the lecture is devoted to partial processes taking place in the
lithosphere and to hydro-meteorological processes and phenomena. These processes are characterized in terms
of trigger factors, manifestations and consequences, as well as possible countermeasures. The final part
presents information on the strategies of research of natural hazards, their international aspects and risk
Maps are used during the exercises as well as an analysis of aerial and satellite images. Databases are also
worked with.
