Risk assessment and management research of meteorological disasters is an important field, developing direction and hotspots on disaster science and geo-science in resent years. This book
    summarized the authors’ many years’ research results on the regional meteorological disaster risks. Taking the main meteorological disasters as study cases, many research fields of the meteorological disasters are studied comprehensively and systematically.
    This book consists of three sections and fifteen chapters. The first section is concerned on the theories, and includes three chapters. In the first, the book systematically discussed the basic concept, formation mechanism, basic characteristics of meteorological disasters and their risks, and the meaning, necessity, research progress and future trends on risk assessment and management of meteorological disasters. At the same time, the basic theories and the theory systems of risk assessment and management of the meteorological disasters are summarized and developed initially. The second section is methodology and includes two chapters. In this section, the generic methods of risk forecast, assessment, management and decision-making of the meteorological disasters are development. And the meteorological disaster risk index method is put forward for the first time. The third section which includes ten chapters is case studies. Using the theories and methods mentioned in the two sections above, the risk assessment, regionalization and management countermeasures of the main meteorological disasters are studied thoroughly. In the last, the concept and meaning of the integrated meteorological disaster risk management are introduced, the countermeasures, implementation process and strategies of the integrated meteorological disaster risk management are discussed, and suggestions on the implementation of the integrated meteorological disaster risk management in China are put forward.
