This text brings together differing geographic perspectives in modeling and analysis in order to highlight infrastructure weaknesses or plan for their protection. Offering new methodological approaches, the book explores the potential consequences of critical infrastructure failure, stemming from both man-made and natural disasters. The approaches employed are wide-ranging, including geographic, economic and social perspectives.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Aus den Rezensionen:

"... Lars-Goeran Mattsson ... und dessen Kollegin Katja Berdica spielen verschiedene Szenarien in ihrem Beitrag ... zu Stoerungen an wichtigen Teilen der Verkehrsinfrastruktur durch. ... Die Autoren gelangen zu erstaunlichen Ergebnissen. ... Holmgren unternimmt neben einer generellen Risikoeinschatzung mit Hilfe analytisch-mathematischer und empirischer Methoden den Versuch, die ... Kernfragen zu beantworten. ... Schwerpunkte dieses ... Buches sind offensichtlich die volks- und regionalwirtschaftlich immens wichtigen Verkehrs- und Energieinfrastrukturen ... Vor allem exogenen Einflussen auf Transport- und Versorgungseinrichtungen wird Raum gegeben ..." (http://www.geowis.de/product_info.php?products_id=417&osCsid=42239ef610d05)
