Coastal Hazards

Coastal Hazards are physical marvels that uncover a coastal zone to risk of property harm, loss of life and natural degradation. Rapid-onset hazards last over times of minutes to a few days and examples comprise major cyclones combined with high winds, waves and floods or tsunamis made by submarine earthquakes and landslides. Slow-onset hazards raised steadily over longer time periods and models incorporate disintegration and slow immersion. The characteristics of coastal environments pose some extraordinary difficulties to human residence. Throughout the years, human culture has regularly neglected to recognize the hazards related to these dynamics and this has prompted significant disasters and societal disturbance to different degrees.
