Day_18 : Natural disasters in Thailand

The national risk assessment mapping in Thailand is briefly explained below.

Table 1  Disaster data in Thailand
em-dat_thailand
A target period of these EM-DAT data is from 1900 to 2014. However, the large numbers of death, affected people, and damage cost caused by natural disasters are all after 1970s as shown in Table 1. The data clarify the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami and the 2011 Chao Phraya river flood disasters are so influential in Thailand.

Figure 1 National Risk Assessment Mapping in Thailand

Using EM-DAT data of Thailand (1900-2014), Figure 1 was created. These risk assessment mapping (Frequency-Impact by each damage type) is very simple, but we can easily grasp the whole pictures of the risks.

To evaluate each risk, the following risk matrix options are useful.
riskoption1
Figure 2 Risk matrix options (1)

riskoption2
Figure 3 Risk matrix options (2)

It is clear that the flood is the most countermeasures required disaster in Thailand from the Figure1. By using Figure 2 and 3, for example, we can recognize the extensive management and monitoring are essential and immediate action must be taken against the floods.

The above explanations are very rough. Detailed explanations will be discussed later.

The above was already published with explanations as a report for the Japanese Association for Earthquake and Engineering (JAEE).

    I’m amazed, I must say. Rarely do I come across a
    blog that’s both equally educative and interesting, and let me tell you,
    you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is something that too
    few men and women are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy I found this in my search for something regarding this.
