Abstract

This report brings together information about natural disasters and technological accidents that have occurred across Europe in recent years and their impacts on the environment and society. Much of this information is illustrated through maps, many created specially for this report, graphics and suggestive photographs. The most dramatic of these events are brought alive through case studies, based largely on local information, which detail their chronology and consequences. The report concentrates on the period 1998-2002 but includes preliminary information for 2003 wherever possible.
The natural disasters covered are floods, storms, forest fires, droughts, landslides, snow avalanches and earthquakes. Among technological accidents, oil spills, industrial accidents and mining accidents are considered.
