The Return Period Analysis of Natural Disasters with Statistical Modeling of Bivariate Joint Probability Distribution
Risk Analysis, 06/04/2012
Li N et al. –This research may prove useful in risk–based decision making. The exploration of multivariate analysis methods can also lay the foundation for further applications in natural disaster risk analysis. The joint return periods generated are closer to those observed in reality than the univariate return periods and thus have more value in severe dust storm disaster mitigation, strategy making, program design, and improvement of risk management.
