3. Disaster Management System in Nepal – Policy Issues and Solutions

Gangalal Tuladhar
Pages: 166 - 172
Nepal is highly vulnerable to natural and human induced disasters. Complex geology, variable climatic conditions, active tectonic processes, rapid urbanization, unplanned settlements, lack of public awareness, increasing population, weak economic condition and low literacy rate have made her vulnerable...

5. A GIS-based Micro-simulation Queue Model for Vehicle Evacuation

Jian Ma, Shaobo Liu, Weili Wang, Peng Lin, Siuming Lo
Pages: 178 - 187
In urban areas, people’s life may be threatened by disasters such as earthquakes. To reduce the life risks, efficient responses including evacuation are of critical importance. However, a drill evacuation appears impossible; simulation is thus used to examine the effectiveness of an evacuation plan....

6. Research Progress on Risk Acceptance Criteria of Long- Distance Oil and Gas Transportation Pipeline

Wu Zongzhi, Zhang Shengzhu
Pages: 188 - 194
For acceptable risk and risk acceptance criteria, concepts and definition methods were proposed. Determination principles and application status including ALARP were investigated. Differences between long-distance oil/gas transportation pipeline and other industrial facilities in risk tendency, degree...

7. Assessment Method of Emergency Preparedness System Vulnerability Based on the Complex Network Theory

Tianhan Jiang
Pages: 195 - 200
A novel assessment method of emergency preparedness system vulnerability (EPSV) is established to evaluate the emergency system construction. The assessment index system and its complex network were constructed for EPSV. A simple weighted sum method was used to score the indices. And then the EPSV was...

8. Risk Assessment of Crops Induced by Flood in the Three Northeastern Provinces of China on Small Space-and-Time Scales

Sijian Zhao, Qiao Zhang
Pages: 201 - 208
Crop’s risk assessment induced by natural disasters needs to develop in the fine scale. It is required that risk assessment can be performed on county-level space scale and month-based time scale. But with the thinning of space and time scales, disaster samples would decline greatly and severely limit...
