    • Laurens M Bouwer and Sebastiaan N Jonkman, Environmental Research Letters

    A study published in Environmental Research Letters shows that there has been a global decrease in fatalities from storm surge events. Improved forecasting methods, better early warning systems, effective evacuation schemes, as well as coastal protection, risk-zoning and land-use planning have contributed to the declining number of fatalities and declining mortality. Abstract: Changes in society’s vulnerability […]
