  • Management of Tectonic Hazards
    • Volcanic activity
      • Seismometers
        • Nevado del Ruiz: suggested eruption was immanet, but storm stopped a warning
          • 23,000 deaths
            • Nevado Del Ruiz; was not successful. People lived their due to fertility of land.
    • Earthquakes
      • Fault Mapping
        • Kobe: Despite of this the earthquake occurred on a blind fault
          • Seismomenters
  • Hazard Maps
    • Volcanic activity
      • Seismometers
        • Nevado del Ruiz: suggested eruption was immanet, but storm stopped a warning
          • 23,000 deaths
            • Nevado Del Ruiz; was not successful. People lived their due to fertility of land.
  • Monterserrat: used this tilt meters and arial photograps to create an exclusion zone for southern part of island.
  • Diversion of lava flows
    • Mount Etna: barriers to keep lava away from built up areas, zero deaths
      • Zero Deaths
      • Diversion of lava flows
      • Strain Gauges
        • Kobe: Despite of this the earthquake occurred on a blind fault
          • Seismomenters
      • Building regulations
        • Earthquakes
          • Fault Mapping
          • Bam: Although regulations, buildngs were made out of mud brick
        • Kobe: Earthquake proof buildings withstood earthquake much better
          • Building regulations
            • Bam: Although regulations, buildngs were made out of mud brick
          • 5000 deaths
          • Tsunamis
            • Management of Tectonic Hazards
              • Tsunami warning sytem: pressure sensors and bouys
            • Tsunami warning sytem: pressure sensors and bouys
            • Indian Ocean: None in place so no warning
              • Japan: early warnings and 30 minute window but people came complacement.
                • 19 deaths
                  • Monterserrat: used this tilt meters and arial photograps to create an exclusion zone for southern part of island.
                • In 2010 IOTWS set up, but not maintained so system failed
                  • 400+ deaths
