Abstract

The coastal region is recognized as one of the most vulnerable disaster-prone regions on the surface of planet earth. A wide range of natural, technological and environmental hazards can lead to disasters in the coastal region. These range from simple sea erosion and oil spiUs to devastating tsunamis and major fires. Historical information on the coastal disasters are scanty except for cyclones, coastal erosions, oil spills and floods.
