Summary
Abstract: Global Multihazard Mortality Risks and Distribution is a 2.5 minute grid identifying and characterizing the nature of multihazard risk at the global scale. For this study, multihazard considers the hazards posed by cyclones, droughts, earthquakes, floods, landslides and volcanoes. The specific hazards Global Multihazard Mortality Risks and Distribution is a 2.5 minute grid identifying and ... View entire text

Purpose: To identify areas of the world at multihazard mortality risk and to gain insight into the nature of this risk posed.

Quality The first step in creating a multihazard surface is to isolate those areas that are the most at-risk for mortality (deciles 8-10) for each of the hazards considered in the study (cyclones, droughts, earthquakes, floods, landslides, and volcanoes). Three categorical hazard surfaces representing the highest mortality risks are created from combinations of the single hazard surfaces. The hazard ... View entire text
