Geological hazard


Property destruction, loss of livelihoods and services, social and economic disruption, or environmental damage may result from a geological process or phenomena.

Internal earth activities such as earthquakes, volcanic activity, and emissions, as well as related geophysical processes like mass movements, landslides, rockslides, surface collapses, and debris or mudflows, are all examples of geological hazards. Some of these processes are influenced by hydrometeorological conditions. Tsunamis are difficult to classify because, while they are produced by underwater earthquakes and other geological events, they are primarily an oceanic phenomenon that manifests as a coastal water-related hazard.
