Remote Sensing from Space Book Review:

David Stevens Space-based information, which includes earth observation data, is increasingly becoming an integral part of our lives. We have been relying for decades on data obtained from meteorological satellites for updates on the weather and to monitor weather-related natural disasters such as hurricanes. We now count on our personal satellite-based navigation systems to guide us to the nearest Starbucks Coffee and use web-based applications such as Google Earth and Microsoft Virtual Earth to study the area of places we will or would like to visit. At the same time, satellite-based technologies have experienced impressive growth in recent years with an increase in the number of available sensors, an increase in spatial, temporal and spectral resolutions, an increase in the availability of radar satellites such as Terrasar-X and ALOS, and the launching of specific constellations such as the Disaster Monitoring Constellation (DMC), COSMO- SkyMed (COnstellation of small Satellites for the Mediterranean basin Observation) and RapidEye. Even more recent are the initiatives being set-up to ensure that space-based information is being accessed and used by decision makers, such as Sentinel Asia for the Asia and Pacific region and SERVIR for the Latin America and Caribbean region.

Advanced Methods for IDP and Refugee Camp Mapping with Very High Resolution Satellite Imagery Book Review:

Due to natural and man-made disasters, worldwide millions of people are seeking shelter in camps. Most of these camps are under supervision of national and international relief organizations which are responsible for supplying the camps with basic necessities. Therefore, knowing the number of inhabitants is an essential aspect for the effective management of the logistics. This study aims to show that very high resolution satellite imagery can be used for counting residential numbers by extractions of actual shelters in the camps. Based on recent publications, methods for shelter extraction were examined and modified. With images derived from IKONOS (1 m resolution) of two Refugee/IDP (Internally Displaced People) camps in eastern Chad a visual interpretation, three pixel-based approaches and one object-based analysis were tested. Additionally, a visual interpretation of images recorded by the new radar satellite TerraSAR-X was applied to show the possibilities for refugee camp mapping with spatially very high resolution radar. In this context, IKONOS and TerraSAR-X images were combined. The pixel and object-based methods for shelter extraction were discussed with regard to their accuracy and time expenditure as well as the possibilities for their implementation in diverse crisis situations. Therefore an exhaustive accuracy assessment on users, producers and overall accuracy was performed. Moreover, the different characteristics of the images were discussed. It was shown that the overall accuracy of the different methods ranges from about 34% to 88%. This discrepancy is due to characteristics of the shelters in the two campsites and the diverse methods for extraction. The object-based approach turned out to be the most robust technique with regard to the transferability to other imagery. The combined method of IKONOS and TerraSAR-X showed a high potential for more precise techniques in shelter mapping for future approaches.

Natural and Anthropogenic Disasters Book Review:

The major challenges of the 21st century faced by human beings are how to achieve water security, food security, energy security and environmental security. Owing to enhanced natural/anthropogenic disasters worldwide, these challenges become much more complicated and daunting especially for developing countries. Therefore, it is important to highlight the risk of different disasters as well as the modern tools and techniques for minimizing disaster incidence and losses. Disaster management being highly multidisciplinary in nature, a comprehensive book dealing with different aspects of disaster management, and encompassing important disasters faced by humankind is presently not available. This book is an attempt to fulfill this gap. It provides clear, comprehensive, and up-to-date information about different facets of disaster management along with salient case studies. The book highlights the current status of disaster management focusing on developing nations, discusses vital issues such as climate change and sustainable development, modern approaches and tools/techniques, and the challenges of and future R&D needs for sustainable disaster management.

Plate Boundaries and Natural Hazards Book Review:

The beginning of the new millennium has been particularly devastating in terms of natural disasters associated with tectonic plate boundaries, such as earthquakes in Sumatra, Chile, Japan, Tahiti, and Nepal; the Indian Ocean and the Pacific Ocean tsunamis; and volcanoes in Indonesia, Chile, Iceland that have produced large quantities of ash causing major disruption to aviation. In total, half a million people were killed by such natural disasters. These recurring events have increased our awareness of the destructive power of natural hazards and the major risks associated with them. While we have come a long way in the search for understanding such natural phenomena, and although our knowledge of Earth dynamics and plate tectonics has improved enormously, there are still fundamental uncertainties in our understanding of natural hazards. Increased understanding is crucial to improve our capacity for hazard prediction and mitigation. Volume highlights include: Main concepts associated with tectonic plate boundaries Novel studies on boundary-related natural hazards Fundamental concepts that improve hazard prediction and mitigation Plate Boundaries and Natural Hazards will be a valuable resource for scientists and students in the fields of geophysics, geochemistry, plate tectonics, natural hazards, and climate science.

Managing the Risks of Extreme Events and Disasters to Advance Climate Change Adaptation Book Review:

This Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Special Report (IPCC-SREX) explores the challenge of understanding and managing the risks of climate extremes to advance climate change adaptation. Extreme weather and climate events, interacting with exposed and vulnerable human and natural systems, can lead to disasters. Changes in the frequency and severity of the physical events affect disaster risk, but so do the spatially diverse and temporally dynamic patterns of exposure and vulnerability. Some types of extreme weather and climate events have increased in frequency or magnitude, but populations and assets at risk have also increased, with consequences for disaster risk. Opportunities for managing risks of weather- and climate-related disasters exist or can be developed at any scale, local to international. Prepared following strict IPCC procedures, SREX is an invaluable assessment for anyone interested in climate extremes, environmental disasters and adaptation to climate change, including policymakers, the private sector and academic researchers.
