Leveraging Geotagged Social Media to Monitor Spatial Behavior During Population Movements Triggered by Hurricanes
A chronology of key events and figures leading to the invention of the determinants of infectious disease and its use in medicine and sport is listed.
Improving Tropical Cyclone Intensity Forecasts with PRIME
AbstractThe Prediction of Intensity Model Error (PRIME) forecasting scheme uses various large-scale meteorological parameters as well as proxies for initial condition uncertainty and atmospheric flow
Concerns and perceptions immediately following Superstorm Sandy: ratings for property damage were higher than for health issues
Concerns of coastal and central New Jersey residents within the first 100 days of Superstorm Sandy’s landfall are evaluated to design future preparedness plans, improve resiliency for future severe weather events, and reduce public health risk.
Simulation-based analyses of an evacuation from a metropolis during a bombardment
An evacuation agent-based model is developed that describes a massive evacuation through the road network of a metropolis during a bombardment and shows that it could be a framework that provides footing data to develop efficient evacuation policies and preparations.
A multilevel analysis of private-vehicle evacuation clearance times along the US Gulf Coast
This study uses multilevel regression analysis to examine the effect of social characteristics and the built environment on clearance time under an evacuation scenario. The primary unit of analysis
Human Response to Natural Disasters
This study elaborates on the connection between socioeconomic status, education, and the ability to respond to natural disasters. Using the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and other natural disasters
Effectiveness of an adaptive flood management strategy using riparian risk assessment and a tolerability criterion
Owing to climate change, torrential rains and typhoons have become more frequent. However, to cope with this threat, conventional flood management suffers from limitations and difficulties because of
Measuring Place Connectivity Using Big Social Media Data
A place connectivity index (PCI) based on spatial interactions among places revealed by geotagged tweets is introduced as a multiscale, spatiotemporal-continuous, and easy-to-implement measurement and has great potential in addressing real-world problems that require place connectivity knowledge.
Measuring global multi-scale place connectivity using geotagged social media data
This investigation suggests that PCI has great potential in addressing real-world problems that require place connectivity knowledge, exemplified with two applications: modeling the spatial spread of COVID-19 during the early stage of the pandemic and modeling hurricane evacuation destination choice.
Social cohesion and quality of life among survivors of a natural disaster
A potential effect of social cohesion on QOL, specifically the psychosocial domain, which may manifest after 6 months among survivors of a hurricane is highlighted, and the importance of long-term programs and interventions to help survivors adjust after experiences of disaster is suggested.
