  • A novel knowledge representation method based on ontology for natural disaster decision-making

    The emergency decision-making is the key of natural disaster emergency management and it is based on the efficiency management of the knowledge relative to the decision making. However, because of the complexity and diversity of the knowledge used in emergency decision-making, most of the proposed knowledge representation method failed to represent the emergency decision-making knowledge efficiently. To solve this problem, we present a knowledge representation method that integrates the natural disaster emergency knowledge into domain ontology to manage information and knowledge for supporting decision-making. Based on this method, we developed a emergency management system of natural disaster and the result shows the method is feasible and effective.

  • Combining Geo-Information Technology and Empirical Knowledge to Improve Natural Disaster Early Warning and Monitoring Systems in Brazil

    Population growth in urban areas drives people vulnerability to natural disasters, especially in emergent economies like Brazil. The existing automatic pluviometric network is insufficient to provide enough information to monitor and prevent deaths due to landslides and floods in 821 municipalities defined as priority ones in the Brazilian National Plan of Risk Management and Response to Natural Disasters, implemented in 2012. Therefore, aiming to support early warning and monitoring systems and make available near-real time rain data, the National Early Warning and Monitoring Centre of Natural Disasters (Cemaden) has carried out an integrative institutional project to acquire and identify optimal places to install 1400 automatic pluviometers in risk areas of landslides and/or floods, already mapped in more than 350 Brazilian municipalities where existing network is scarce. Using geo- information techniques, the methodology included a deficit analysis to estimate the needed number of pluviometers per municipality. These estimates were used in a cooperative action between Cemaden and institutions at state and municipality levels, especially municipality governments and their civil defenses. A number of technical meetings and fieldwork training were done in 14 from the 27 Brazilian Federal Units in several municipalities to promote the project. Cemaden developed a dedicated web database where the institutions' representatives were able to supply detailed information of suitable sites to install pluviometers inside or nearby risk areas, based on their empirical knowledge of local characteristics. The results so far are very promising as 1, 500 locations have been filled since March 2013, and around 600 were chosen as optimal installation sites using spatial analysis. As the pluviometers installations take place, we expect a significant improvement on the efficiency and confidence of early warnings of landslides and floods as well as more commitment of local governments and communities to respond to warnings.

  • Application of remote sensing images for natural disaster mitigation using wavelet based pattern recognition analysis

    During the past few decades there has been a tremendous increase in natural disasters and its effect on population and economy. Adverse events, such as cyclones, tornadoes, floods, volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, tsunamis, etc., turns into a disaster when it strikes in an area of vulnerable population. Immediate tracking of the damaged location provides near-instant help to the injured and also facilitates appropriate maintenance to damaged structures. The recent advances in the remote sensing area have accelerated the availability of satellite/aerial image data worldwide with ease. Advancement in the remote sensing area, especially after the rapid availability of satellite/aerial image data supplemented with the development in the computational field has been utilized in this paper to achieve the goal of faster automatic natural disaster location identification. Satellite/aerial imageries are used to acquire the data of the damaged location from an eagle- eye perspective and the application of the wavelet based pattern recognition and latest image processing techniques are used for identifying locations of major natural disasters like cyclones, tornadoes and floods.

  • Research on natural disaster forecasting data processing and visualization technology

    The natural disaster forecasting data are produced by modeling computation and different data analyzing software. Only processed and visualized by computer can they be understood and used easily by scientists, government managers, and common people. In this paper, the natural disaster forecasting data processing and visualization technology on web is studied, which includes the single point observing data, the remote sensing data and regional modeling computation data. The data is processed on the application server of the web architecture and visualized in two-dimensional and three-dimensional style. The achievement of this paper is used in the China Digital Ocean Prototype System for the processing and visualization of the storm tide disaster forecasting data. The paper is based on an ongoing research project for the development of an ocean observing information system for the Taiwan Strait that will facilitate the prevention of ocean disasters.

  • Proposal of Information Acquisition Method Utilizing CCN in a Time of Large Scale Natural Disaster

    We focused on Content Centric Networking (CCN) of the next generation network. CCN is the technology for which data is reused over the whole network by storing cache of data in each router. In this paper, we propose the information acquisition method utilizing CCN in a time of large scale natural disaster. We attempted a comparison between IP network and CCN over the network simulator. In this comparative verification, we established the cache hit ratio, the number of hops, and data acquisition time as the evaluation item. On comparative verification, we could confirm the utility of the CCN. CCN technology has a great potential that various information can be provided to victims in poor network conditions of a time of large scale natural disaster.

  • Multi-scale coupling and application of natural disaster risk analysis

    Differences in spatial scale appear in expression of natural disaster risk. The large-scale region spans up to global level, regional (continental) level, watershed level of major rivers, the natural regional and national level. Grasping the principle of “good order, reasonable distribution”, the expression of disaster risk map focuses on regional risk general trends and macroeconomic situation. The meso-scale regions contain natural areas, sub- districts, the provinces, cities, regions of administrative division. Risk zoning services are for the regional long-term disaster prevention and mitigation planning. It also provides accurate background parameters for small-scale disaster risk assessment. The small-scale regions include natural state, the district, county, town, village, streets and communities of the administrative divisions. The risk characterization of affected areas is to improve the accuracy of vulnerability assessment. It is also provide technical methods for disaster risk assessment.

  • Geohazards observations and natural disaster assessment in China

    The Chinese geohazards observations and natural disaster assessment system is established so as to make information related to environmental risk and vulnerability easily accessible to decision-makers through this centralized platform. In the case of MS 7.1 Yushu earthquake disaster, for emergence response, we presented a method for generating seismic intensity map based on seismological mechanism solutions. The disaster assessment system automatically drew the distribution map. Referring to usable data, the chains of rapid assessment on earthquake disaster are analyzed, and different models are established for assessing affected population, damaged houses and lifelines and comprehensive earthquake loss evaluation. We also established an assessment model of mud-rock flow disaster in the disaster assessment system. Take the Gansu Province, Zhouqu County 8.8 extra-large-scale mud-rock flow as example, we present the comprehensive evaluation results by using the aerial images and damaged building evaluation models.

  • Notice of Retraction<br>Research on the dividing standards of responsibility for natural disaster risk based on FIDIC

    FIDIC contract conditions are widely used in the world. According to fairness, justness, efficiency of FIDIC, this paper introduces the fundamental principle of risk allocation and uses the theory of small probability event to determine the dividing standards of responsibility for natural disaster risk, which can reduce the dispute and issue of both of the contractor and owner and perfect FIDIC construction contract conditions.

  • Scheduling jobs to contain a natural disaster: a model and complexity

    This paper is devoted to the problem of scheduling suppression units so that a natural disaster is dealt with as efficient as possible. The concept of deteriorating jobs is adopted, that is, the formal model of scheduling represents linearly increasing value loss as the disaster remains unsuppressed and increasing time for its suppression. More precisely, two different goals are considered: finding a suppression schedule of minimal length, and finding a suppression schedule minimizing the total completion time. The former goal is advantageous to the suppression brigade, while the latter realizes the interest of the environment. We show that these two objectives are often in conflict. Then we review the state of the art concerning efficient solutions to the problem.
