  2. 2. Microsimulation Models for Disaster Policy Making

    University dissertation from Kista : Institutionen för data- och systemvetenskap (tills m KTH)

    Author : Lisa Brouwers; Stockholms universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TECHNOLOGY Information technology Computer science; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Informationsteknik Datavetenskap; Microsimulation; Policy Making; Disaster Management;

    Abstract : Two executable simulation models for answering policy questions were designed and implemented. The first for a flood management case, and the second for a disease transmission case that is currently underway. The flood simulation model differs from earlier natural disaster simulation models in several respects. READ MORE
