Infrastructure risk and disaster data

This collection brings together a series of works that aim to facilitate the understanding and prevention of disasters involving critical infrastructures. Leading the collection is a series of papers sharing data on the environmental impact of the nuclear accident in Fukushima. The additional papers in the collection provide data related to a broad range of critical infrastructures and enable the assessment and mitigation of possible infrastructure disaster hazards and risks.
