Abstract: The Natural Hazards Center, located at the University of Colorado, Boulder,
Colorado, USA, is a national and international clearinghouse for information on
natural hazards and human adjustments to hazards and disasters. The Natural
Hazards Center carries out its mission in four principal areas: information
dissemination, an annual workshop, research, and library services. The center's
prime goal ... is to increase communication among hazard/disaster researchers and
those individuals, agencies, and organizations that are actively working to
reduce disaster damage and suffering. The Natural Hazards Center has a variety
of resources available on the Internet, and Web site managers are encouraged to
link to any useful items they might find here. In addition, reproduction - with
acknowledgement - of this information is permitted and encouraged.
