Preface to the Special Issue on Geochemical Investigations on Geohazards

Abstract

Geological hazards (Geohazards), when triggered by earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, usually cause severe damage and can result in huge casualties. Unfortunately, these natural hazards are often unexpected, seemingly unavoidable and frequently catastrophic in their impact on living environments. However, if such natural attacks can be detected in advance with a full understanding of their causes and processes, mitigations can then be taken to avert the worst effects.
