Tectonic Hazards and its Effect on Man and Environment

Kaushik K Ghosh

Abstract: Plate tectonics is the most significant geodynamic force operating within the Earth since after the formation of the crust. It is a branch of Geology which deals with the large-scale movement which is observed on the earths surface. Volcanic eruption, earthquake and tsunami these are the three hazards associated with tectonic movement. An attempt has been made in this study to identify the effective solutions to prevent, control and mitigate these hazards. Prevention is better than cure - this policy is not effective for any tectonic disaster. Problems can be minimized with the help of proper knowledge, awareness campaign and hazard preparedness. Due importance should be given to the uncoded knowledge of aborigines and local people.

Keywords: Plate tectonics, tectonic hazard, volcanic hazard, Earthquake and Tsunami
