The 35 papers cover estimating risk; preventing, managing, and controlling hazard; managing risk; soil, water, and air contamination; flood risk; methods and systems of safe ship operation; security risk; and network systems. Among specific topics are on-zone and off-zone geomorphic features for multi-risk assessment related to slope dynamics in the Iceland fjords, how to build a company risk profile, the probabilistic assessment of leachate propagation in the groundwater by an uncontrolled landfill, living with dam-break flood risk in a Portuguese dam-valley system, and the impact of coalition and resistance force levels on civilian deaths and injuries in Iraq 2003-05.
