Communication from the Commission to the European Parliament, the Council and the Committee of the Regions - Strengthening EU Disaster Management: rescEU Solidarity with Responsibility Solidarity with Responsibility

No. COM(2017) 773 final. (23 November 2017)


[Excerpt] [\n] [...] [Introduction] Europe is increasingly facing the dramatic impacts of intense and unpredictable extreme weather events and earthquakes with ensuing loss of life, destruction of property and cultural heritage. This has had a tragic cost on lives and livelihoods. The nations of Europe decided to build the European Union (EU) to promote their common good and to face adversities together, each becoming stronger through unity and solidarity. A Europe that protects is one that has the means to respond in a decisive ...


Proposal for a DECISION OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL amending Decision No 1313/2013/EU on a Union Civil Protection Mechanism

No. COM(2017) 772 final. (23 November 2017)


[Excerpt] [\n] [...] [Reasons for and objectives of the proposal] The proposal is intended to introduce some targeted changes to Council Decision No 1313/2013/EU (‘the Decision’) on a Union Civil Protection Mechanism (‘Union Mechanism’), under which the European Union supports, coordinates and supplements the action of Member States in the field of civil protection to prevent, prepare for and respond to natural and man-made disasters within and outside the Union. Building on the principles of solidarity and shared responsibility, the overall objective of ...


Streamflow and water well responses to earthquakes

Science, Vol. 300, No. 5628. (2003), pp. 2047-2049,


Earthquake-induced crustal deformation and ground shaking can alter stream flow and water levels in wells through consolidation of surficial deposits, fracturing of solid rocks, aquifer deformation, and the clearing of fracture-filling material. Although local conditions affect the type and amplitude of response, a compilation of reported observations of hydrological response to earthquakes indicates that the maximum distance to which changes in stream flow and water levels in wells have been reported is related to earthquake magnitude. Detectable streamflow changes occur in ...


Emergency knowledge management and social media technologies: A case study of the 2010 Haitian earthquake

International Journal of Information Management, Vol. 31, No. 1. (24 February 2011), pp. 6-13,


The US response to the 2010 Haiti Earthquake was a large effort coordinated by three major agencies that worked in tandem with the Government of Haiti, the United Nations, and many countries from around the globe. Managing this response effort was a complex undertaking that relied extensively on knowledge management systems (KMS). For the first time, however, US government agencies employed social media technologies such as wikis and collaborative workspaces as the main knowledge sharing mechanisms. In this research we present ...


Remote Sensing Based Post-Disaster Damage Mapping – Ready for a Collaborative Approach?

IEEE Earthzine, Vol. 4, No. 1. (2011), 290822


[Excerpt] Rapid and accurate assessment of structural damage is essential after disaster events, especially in densely built-up urban areas. The results provide guidance for rescue forces and other immediate relief efforts, as well as subsequent rehabilitation and reconstruction. Especially for spatially extensive events, ground-based mapping is too slow, typically hindered by disaster-related site access difficulties, or too dangerous as in the case of potential radioactive contamination resulting from the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami disaster in Japan. Remote sensing has long ...


Natural hazard chain research in China: A review

Natural Hazards In Natural Hazards, Vol. 70, No. 2. (2014), pp. 1631-1659,


Most catastrophic disasters are triggered by multi-hazards that occur simultaneously or sequentially rather than singly; this can result in more severe consequences. Therefore, it is necessary to understand the occurrence, development, and transformation of hazard chains and comprehend their rules in order to predict secondary hazards. An effective action for reducing potential losses can be taken to block a hazard chain before it expands and transforms. Many studies have been conducted on hazard chains, some of which are of great significance. ...


Cellular‐Automata Models Applied to Natural Hazards

Computing in Science & Engineering, Vol. 2, No. 3. (01 May 2000), pp. 42-51,


The concept of self‐organized criticality evolved from studies of three simple cellular‐automata models: the forest‐fire, slider‐block, and sandpile models. Each model is associated with natural hazards, which have frequency‐size statistics that are well approximated by power‐law distributions. These distributions have important implications for probabilistic hazard assessments. ...

Aftershocks in the Courtroom

Science, Vol. 338, No. 6104. (12 October 2012), pp. 184-188,


Four scientists, two engineers, and a government official participated in a meeting of an expert panel of Italy's Civil Protection Department on 31 March 2009 in the central Italian town of L'Aquila to assess a series of tremors that had shaken the town over the previous 3 months. After the group adjourned, two members gave a press conference, accompanied by local officials. Prosecutors in a controversial manslaughter trial say they downplayed the risk to L'Aquila's inhabitants, and as a result, some ...


Microblogging during two natural hazards events: what twitter may contribute to situational awareness

In Proceedings of the SIGCHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (2010), pp. 1079-1088,


We analyze microblog posts generated during two recent, concurrent emergency events in North America via Twitter, a popular microblogging service. We focus on communications broadcast by people who were "on the ground" during the Oklahoma Grassfires of April 2009 and the Red River Floods that occurred in March and April 2009, and identify information that may contribute to enhancing situational awareness (SA). This work aims to inform next steps for extracting useful, relevant information during emergencies using information extraction (IE) techniques. ...
