Abstract: The importance of the impact of natural hazards on technological systems and a lack of research on the problem, compared with studies of natural hazards themselves, prompted us to organize a Special Session “Natural Hazards and Technological Disasters” at the General Assembly 2010 of the European Geosciences Union. The session dealt with the relationship between natural hazardous processes and the technosphere. Based on this session we decided to prepare a Special Issue of the journal Natural Hazard and Earth System Sciences which collects selected contributions to the session. The articles address a variety of topics including methodologies and tools for Natech risk assessment, procedures for loss estimations, case-study descriptions of Natech events and analysis of other natural-hazard impact on technological systems. The main purpose of the Special Issue is to raise awareness of the increasing problem of natural hazards triggering technological disruptions and accidents and to propose methods and tools to mitigate the associated risk.
