Urbanization has been found to impact stormwater runoff quantity and quality. A study catchment with mixed land use, residential and industrial were investigated and the water quality discharged from the catchment were sampled and tested. The results were analyzed to compare against stowmwater quality benchmark limits, typical stormwater characteristics, effects of rainfall on dry event water quality, first flush phenomenon, comparison of wet and dry event water quality based on land characterize/land use as relative sources. Storm duration is a substantial parameter to characterize the rainfall depth and intensity thus affect the resulting runoff peak and water quality. A typical rainfall duration is computed to stimulate rainfall-runoff using EPA Storm Water Management Model (SWMM) of the subcatchments within the watershed. Parameters used to develop the model of the study catchment are discussed. The nature of the pollutant to the projected rainfall within the model watershed is evaluated.

Storm surges represent a major hazard for many coastal regions worldwide. The 1953 and 1962 catastrophes are well remembered in Europe, and recent incidents in Bangladesh and Myanmar caused over 100,000 casualties. Developing innovative responses and overcoming the frequently fragmented discussion about this global phenomenon and its regional implications call for improved knowledge of present risks and future conditions based on sound interdisciplinary approaches.This selection of articles presents multiple scientific and management oriented perspectives on current and future storm surges, covering the fields of observing, modelling and forecasting, risk and vulnerability analysis, planning and innovative coastal protection concepts. It originates from the international ' 2010 Storm Surges Congress - Risk and Management of Current and Future Storm Surges,' initiated and organized by the Institute of Coastal Research, Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht (formerly the GKSS-Research Centre) in collaboration with the KlimaCampus (CliSAP) of the University of Hamburg, Germany. The Land-Ocean Interactions in the Coastal Zone (LOICZ) co-sponsored the event and its international project office (IPO) provided the necessary organizational support. The congress was generously supported by international and national partners. Some highlights:Remote sensing surveillance and mapping of storm surge extent based on NASA MODIS sensors may ultimately provide new global insights into the vulnerability of deltas where human pressures outbalance natural land-ocean forcing. Up-scaling hazard lines and risk mapping from local to full continental scale is the ambition in India. From an insurance risk perspective, its societal perception and economic issues determine societal response options. In urban contexts flood risk is anticipated as a combination of climate change-induced sea level rise and socio-economic drivers. A cost-benefit analysis of flood defence in London underlines the fact that future investment will be highly beneficial, thoughtful planning rather than rushing to new engineering solutions is preferable.Several modelling case studies and approaches are presented, covering the effects of individual storms, the development of analytical models that can help us to understand relevant processes and mechanisms, and sensitivity studies that test the impact and relevance of various physical processes for storm surge generation and evolution. Hydrodynamic models applied to different emission scenarios suggest that the threat of extreme storm surges in the North Sea may increase but strong decadal fluctuations and internal variability need to be considered. A Korean study suggests that future global warming may not always lead to an increase in the number of intense cyclones or the magnitude of associated storm surges.Past and recent storm surges arising at the dune coast of France call for improved assessment and management of a growing flood risk in future sea-level rise projections. In the same context rather than deterministic approaches, considering the uncertainties that influence extreme water levels can significantly improve the design levels of coastal structures and flood defences. The innovative Dutch "Building with Nature" concept employs natural processes for coastal flood protection.Previously published in Natural Hazards, Volume 66, No. 3, 2013

Blindsided: A Manager's Guide to Crisis Leaders...
56,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

A crisis strikes out of the blue, at the time and place least expected. In a word, you're blindsided. According to Bruce Blythe, managing a crisis is an ultimate test of leadership, requiring leaders who inspire loyalty and trust as they rise to the occasion to meet the needs of people. In his new expanded edition of Blindsided, Blythe shows you what it takes to be an effective and humane strategic crisis leader, a 'crisis whisperer.' Blythe has divided Blindsided into two operational sections - giving you two books in one. Much of his emphasis is on the often-neglected human side of crisis management. He goes beyond protecting tangible assets to instilling principled concern for human well-being into every decision. Part 1. Crisis Response: - Using the technique of focused imagery, Blythe places you in a dramatic and realistic scenario. You're now an unprepared manager blindsided by the reality of an active shooter loose in your building. Some workers may already be injured or dead. - What's your next move? How do you make sure everybody is safe? How do you set up teams, command centers, crisis containment, and effective communication? How do you protect your corporate reputation throughout this life-changing event? Can you rebuild the spirit, cohesion, and productivity of employees in the post-crisis 'new normal'? - At the start of the book - before you lived the sudden crisis in this simulation, a crisis response plan may have been 'someday' project - now it's a priority. Part 2. Crisis Preparedness: - Now you embark on building a crisis response plan - or enhancing the one you have. - Without losing the urgency and probable fear of the specific event, Blythe guides you and your teams to analyze foreseeable risks, evaluate existing controls, add new ones, test and re-evaluate the plan. - Analyzing the behavior of national and world leaders, you distinguish clearly the two kinds of leaders who emerge in a crisis: the 'crisis whisperer' who becomes a calm center in the storm, and the one in the 'crisis red zone,' worsening the situation with every word and every decision. - You learn to employ the Be-Know-Do leadership model (adapted from military) that has been implemented by senior management teams throughout the world. If there is ever a time that training and informed quick response action matter most, it's in a crisis. Blindsided includes practical forms, checklists, case studies, real-life examples, glossary, index, discussion questions, and other take-and-use tools, including: - Quick Use Response Guide: Each of the 15 chapters end with a summary checklist - together they form a ready-reference pocket guide. - Incident Checklists for 9 Major Crises: Practical checklists for accidental deaths, aircraft crash, chemical/toxic exposure, civil unrest, earthquake, explosion/fire, flood, kidnap ransom, shooting, plus 20 other foreseeable risks. - 20-Page Guide for Addressing Families of the Injured: What to say/do to help families of fatalities or seriously injured with medical/financial assistance, emotional support - and training teams assigned to work with them.

Cyberwarfare refers to politically motivated hacking to conduct sabotage and espionage. It is a form of information warfare sometimes seen as analogous to conventional warfare although this analogy is controversial for both its accuracy and its political motivation. Cyber security standards are security standards which enable organizations to practice safe security techniques to minimize the number of successful cyber security attacks. This book is your ultimate resource for Cybersecurity. Here you will find the most up-to-date information, analysis, background and everything you need to know.

Management of the Effects of Coastal Storms

A large part of the world's coastlines consists of sandy beaches and dunes that may undergo dramatic changes during storms. Extreme storm events in some cases dominate the erosion history of the coastline and may have dramatic impacts on densely populated coastal areas. Policy, research and historical background are essential elements that need to be interconnected for effective coastal planning and management. This book discusses this framework, with Chapter 1 providing an insight into policy settings and science-policy interactions in the area of coastal risks related to storms and flooding, and integrated coastal zone management. This is followed by a review of the current understanding of the processes generating extreme coastal events, the morphological evolution of coastlines during and after the events, and the methods for monitoring the process as it occurs or for post-event appraisal. The final chapter discusses the importance of historical approaches regarding coastal threats, taking the Xynthia storm as an example.

The results of this project should enhance our ability to proactively improve the protection of public health. Equating the presence of pathogens to broad land use categories may help mitigate risks. As millions of dollars are spent on pathogen and storm event monitoring, a better understanding of the pathogen contributions from specific origins will improve watershed management approaches and help mitigate public health risks. This project may also advance sampling procedures needed for effective monitoring, and enhance the ability of wastewater treatment facilities to evaluate priorities for long term control planning and compliance.
