Yu, M.; Yu, W., and Cheng, J., 2015. The influencing factors of typhoon disaster to populated islands and its defensive countermeasures research.
Island is the meeting place of land and sea. The unique geographical environment makes it highly vulnerable to various natural disasters, especially to typhoons. Natural disaster is a complex phenomenon involving Earth's surface dynamics affected by the combined forces of many elements in nature. Based on the theory of natural disaster risk analysis, this paper will analyze how typhoon disaster affects the populated island from three aspects of disaster-causing factors including vulnerability of hazard-bearing body, disaster prevention and mitigation capacity, as well as the defense strategy and specific measures taken by governments and individuals in response to typhoon disaster. The research results have important theoretical implications for the study of islands' typhoons risk assessment.
