This volume brings together papers on current research into natural hazards in El Salvador and efforts to mitigate their impact on the society. It recognizes the need and potential for such work around the world and especially in many developing countries. In El Salvador, researchers on geological hazards obtain very frequent experience with real hazards and, through their work, aim to help develop strategies to mitigate the terrible suffering and monetary cost that is associated with their impact.
