The most effective decision-making takes place when it is informed by reliable data. Pillar 3 of the Open Data for Resilience Initiative (OpenDRI) seeks to support the appropriate use of data in decision-making in a range of resilience planning, risk reduction, financing, preparedness, and recovery contexts. OpenDRI does this by supporting the adop...
This article presents a 'Pressure Cooker' approach for building interdisciplinary risk communication capacity in young researchers and professionals through an intensive 24-hour workshop. The event successfully brought together 35 participants from around the world to work on real-life environmental hazard/risk communication challenges for two area...
Natural hazards such as coastal and river floods, tornadoes, droughts, heatwaves, wildfires, and landslides cause significant economic losses (e.g., agriculture and property damage) and notable counts of fatalities. While natural hazards are often considered to be caused by a single climatic driver (e.g., coastal flood from storm surge only), they...
Natural hazards such as floods, hurricanes, heatwaves, and wildfires cause significant economic losses (e.g., agricultural and property damage) as well as a high number of fatalities. Natural hazards are often driven by univariate or multivariate hydrometeorological drivers. Therefore, it is crucial to understand how and which hydrometeorological v...

The present study had been conducted to study the shelf life of grapes with coatings of Aloe Vera suspended in water with concentrations of 0, 10, 20 and 30 per cent Aloe veraand was stored in poly packaging and open plates under different temperatures of 0⁰C and 30⁰C in refrigerator and incubator. The data was compared with the original shelf life...
The biodegradable organic biomasses are a potential source of renewable energy when biologically converted into biogas under anaerobic conditions. Studies on biogas production from various organic biomass such as ground pine needle, ground oak, vermi compost of pine needle and cow urine treated pine needle and pine needle treated with NaOH, lime, u...
The ginger is one of the oldest known major spices indigenous to India. It is widely used around the world in food as spice and is a common condiment for a variety of compounded foods and beverages. A major problem encountered during processing of ginger is blackening or darkening of color due to oxidation of phenolase enzyme activity. During therm...
Survival of living organism and socioeconomic development depend largely on the availability of water. Ground water is a main source of water for irrigation, industries, recreation, domestic and drinking purpose. With the increasing population and industries, the requirement of water is increasing day by day and as industries are growing the pollut...
Sugarcane is an important cash crop and cultivated between 320N to 320S latitude covering more than 90 countries of the world. India contributing 19.98% of the total world production is the second largest producer of sugarcane next to Brazil. In India sugarcane is cultivated in 4.86 million hectares with annual production of 324.91 million tonnes i...
In this study an artificial neural network based evaporation estimation model was developed and evaluated the performance of the developed model for Udaipur, Rajasthan, India. Multiple linear regressions were used to estimate the pan evaporation for the study area and to model the linear correlations between a single dependent variable Y and two or...
Ongoing global demand for a healthier diet has led to a rise in demand for convenient and fresh food produce, with high nutritional values and low concentrations of chemical additives. Minimally fresh processed fruits and vegetables, satisfies the consumers’ perception of a high nutritional quality and convenience produce. However, minimally proces...
The horticulture sector in India is characterized by small, segregated farms with low per-hectare yields and huge post-harvest losses, owing to outdated practices. India stores only about 2-3% of its horticulture products in temperature-controlled conditions compared to its European and North American counterparts, who store about 85 per cent of th...
The objective of this paper is to develop an artificial neural network (ANN) model which can be used to predict weekly mean temperatures in Pantnagar, Uttarakhand, India. In order to determine the optimal network architecture, various network architectures were designed; different training algorithms were used; the number of neuron and hidden layer...
Precision farming concept was initiated for site specific crop management as a combination of global positioning system (GPS) technology, variable rate technology (VRT), remote sensing, yield mapping etc. to optimize the profitability, sustainability with a reduced environmental impact. With rich land, abundant water and a favorable climate, hill a...

Flood, Drought, Max temperature, Min temperature, Hurricane, Tornado, Earthquake, Wind, Severe storm, Winter days, Wildfire, Precipitation, Sea level rise, Storm surge, Fog, Hail, Lightning, Landslide, Volcano, Tsunami
I am working on modelling the social dynamics and human responses during flash floods and forecasting the socio-economic impacts of flash floods.
Could you please share any relevant scientific papers/reports or any other related resources?
Please provide reference models and frameworks for agent-based modeling being used in social dynamics during disaster emergencies.
I am working on a project "Agent Based Modelling for Flood Risk Management under Different Climate Change Scenarios" and need some research papers or book chapters for literature review in similar fields.
It'd be greatly appreciated if you could provide any paper/chapter/link?
I am working on a project and I would like to have some recommendations on the following issues:
- How can the smart devices and applications be used for disaster response?
- How these technologies can be used for indoor and outdoor navigation for mass crowd evacuation and rescue?
- How can navigation methods or system that utilize geographic information or building information modeling (BIM) help for mass crowd evacuation and rescue?
- What are the dependability and safety issues of disaster response systems?
Any recommendation (your views, research papers, books etc.) would be highly appreciated.
Thank you very much.

Software and Techniques in Hydrological Modeling
- Coupled modelling of rapidly dynamic hydro-meteorological events and population exposure and vulnerability dynamics in order to predict the potential socio-economic impacts of flash floods,
The main objectives of this study are as follows: • Development of an Agent Based Model (ABM) and integrate it with hydraulic model for simulating the human-flood interaction to evaluate the effectiveness of flood risk communication systems and social vulnerability, and determine the factors which affect evacuation process during a flood event. • Analysing the influence of flood risk management policies on flood risk. • Studying the critical factors that determine the effectiveness of the evacuation process due to extreme flood events, taking into account the road network, the information dissemination among evacuees, local information centres and the lead time of the early warning system. • Studying historical patterns of human-flood interactions to support future decision making policies for flood risk management
