Catastrophe modeling  also known as cat modeling is the process of using computer -assisted calculations to estimate the losses that could be sustained due to a catastrophic event such as a hurricane or earthquake. Cat modeling is especially applicable to analyzing risks in the insurance industry and is at the confluence of actuarial science , engineering , meteorology , and seismology. Natural catastrophes sometimes referred to as "nat cat"  that are modeled include:.
Disaster Risk Management and the Systems Approach.
Catastrophe Modeling: A New Approach to Managing Risk
It explores relevant new science in risk modeling, indirect losses, assessment of impact and consequences to insurance losses, and current changes in risk modeling practice, along with case studies. It also provides further insight into the shortcomings of current models and examines model risk and ideas to diversify risk assessment. Risk Modeling for Hazards and Disasters instructs readers on how to assess, price and then hedge the losses from natural and manmade catastrophes. This book reviews current model development and science and explains recent changes in the catastrophe modeling space, including new initiatives covering uncertainty and big data in the assessment of risk for insurance pricing and portfolio management. Edited by a leading expert in both hazards and risk, this book is authored by a global panel including major modeling vendors, modeling consulting firms, and well-known catastrophe modeling scientists. Earth and Atmospheric scientists - especially geoscientists, meteorologists, geophysicists, hydrologists, seismologists, volcanologists with an involvement in modeling risk from natural hazards for the insurance-reinsurance industry.

Catastrophe Modeling: A New Approach to Managing Risk is the first book that systematically analyzes how catastrophe models can be used for assessing and managing risks of extreme events. It focuses on natural disaster risk, but also discusses the management of terrorism risk. A unique feature of this book is the involvement of three leading catastrophe modeling firms, AIR Worldwide, EQECAT, and Risk Management Solutions, who examine the role of catastrophe modeling in rate setting, portfolio management and risk financing. Given the uncertainties associated with terrorism the book points out the opportunities for utilizing catastrophe models to set insurance rates and to examine public-private partnerships for providing financial assistance in the event of a terrorist attack. There is no comparable reference work for this important subject area. The book is well written and well organized.
Volume 16, What this means is that instead of being separated into issues, new papers will be added on a continuous basis, allowing a more regular flow and shorter publication times. The papers will appear in reverse order, therefore the most recent one will be on top. ABSTRACT: Catastrophic events are characterized by three main points: there are relatively rareness, there are statistical unexpected and there have huge impact on the whole society. Insurance or reinsurance is one way of reducing the economic consequences of catastrophic events. Risk management of insurance and reinsurance companies have to have available relevant information for estimation and adjusting premium to cover these risks.
This book covers both the practical and theoretical aspects of catastrophe modelling for insurance industry practitioners and public policymakers. Written by authors with both academic and industry experience it also functions as an excellent graduate-level text and overview of the field. Ours is a time of unprecedented levels of risk from both natural and anthropogenic sources. Fortunately, it is also an era of relatively inexpensive technologies for use in assessing those risks. The demand from both commercial and public interestsincluding re insurers, NGOs, global disaster management agencies, and local authoritiesfor sophisticated catastrophe risk assessment tools has never been greater, and contemporary catastrophe modelling satisfies that demand.
Metrics details. Floods are the most common and most expensive natural hazard, and they are expected to become more frequent as the climate changes. The geographic focus of the study was the Canadian Maritimes—specifically Halifax, Nova Scotia—and it sought to determine how municipal risks due to rainfall-driven riverine floods could change as a result of climate change. Increasing flood risk demands an open discussion about how much risk is acceptable to the community and what controls on further growth of exposure are necessary. Moreover, projected increases in flood losses put into question long-term insurability in the Halifax area, and highlight a broader problem facing manyother areas in Canada as well.
Невероятно! - воскликнул он и снова швырнул трубку. - Шифровалка вот-вот взорвется, а Стратмор не отвечает на звонки. ГЛАВА 98 Халохот выбежал из святилища кардинала Хуэрры на слепящее утреннее солнце. Прикрыв рукой глаза, он выругался и встал возле собора в маленьком дворике, образованном высокой каменной стеной, западной стороной башни Гиральда и забором из кованого железа. За открытыми воротами виднелась площадь, на которой не было ни души, а за ней, вдали, - стены Санта-Круса.
- Он засмеялся. - Попрыгунчик - древняя история. Стратмор дал маху.
