This report provides an overview of the rapid onset natural hazards which impact on Australian communities, including tropical cyclone, flood, severe storm, bushfire, landslide, earthquake and tsunami events. Emphasis is placed on identifying risk analysis requirements for these hazards and the phenomena that they cause, with a particular focus on likelihood and consequence.
The gaps in information required to more rigorously analyse risk from natural hazards are identified, with emphasis placed on those which are research related. Also included is an overview of the roles played by government and non-government agencies, groups and individuals in the management of natural hazards. Postage and handling costs within Australia and overseas will be charged.
