Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Natural hazards are common worldwide and, more often that, cause catastrophic consequences including considerable deaths and economic losses. Given that many people and environments suffer from these hazards every year, these events are receiving increasing attention and investigation from both the science community and local authorities. Hazards can originate in different sources and systems, such as geological, atmospheric, hydrological, oceanographic, volcanological, and seismic; therefore, it is important to monitor and model them with the aim of reducing and mitigating the risk.

The aim of this Special Issue is to provide an outlet for studies that propose and develop innovative monitoring techniques and modeling approaches for natural hazards. We encourage submissions regarding the following fields: field investigation and monitoring; early-warning systems; multiple-hazard modelling and assessment; numerical simulation; GIS-based risk assessment; and hazard prediction.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Inventions is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1500 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
