Exposure

FJ

People, property, systems, or other things that are located in hazard zones and are thus at risk of loss. Exposure can be measured by the number of people or the sorts of assets in a given area. These can be paired with the exposed elements’ individual vulnerability to any given hazard to estimate the quantitative risks associated with that hazard in the area of interest.
