At the same time, early warning systems became part of the disaster management practice for instance in Japan and Indonesia. This book marks the important point where:Research activities continue to improve early warning Experience with applications is expanding
At this critical point in development of early warning for geological disasters it is timely to provide a volume that documents the state-of-the-art, provides an overview on recent developments and serves as knowledge resource for researcher and practitioners.
In this practical and comprehensive guide, author Martin Kleppmann helps you navigate this diverse landscape by examining the pros and cons of various technologies for processing and storing data.
