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.
