I trust this email finds you well. On behalf of the open-access journal IJGI (ISSN 2220-9964, IF 1.840), I am pleased to announce a new Special Issue entitled "GIS in Seismic Disaster Risk Assessment and Management."
I currently have the cure of this Special Issue as Guess Editor. I sincerely hope that this proposing intercepts the topic of your current research or motivates you for finishing someones, or for developing others idea yet.
The submission deadline is 30 June 2020 and papers may be submitted immediately or at any point until 30 June 2020, as papers will be published on an ongoing basis. For more information on this Special Issue and submission guidelines, please visit the following page:
The aim of this Special Issue is to present works based on data GIS processing such as spatial analysis, geostatistical, and modeling or metamodeling, as well as geoinformation algorithms or interactive representation architectures, all focused on seismic-Induced Hazards (or Risk) assessing or their governance and management. The studies can involve and be applied to different study areas, both theoretical/demonstrative and case studies.
Therefore, GIS-based models, processes or procedures able to produce maps that combine morphometric and subsoil data using canonical or simplified (empirical or stochastic) models and multimodel combinations are welcome, taking into account the soil and rock features, as well as their dynamic behavior. The phenomena should be seismic shaking and its effects on the anthropized environment, earthquake-induced landslides, liquefaction, and densification, as well as tsunami invasion areas.
