[MIS12-04] Natural hazards from the geological and geomorphological point of view; A case study in the Oita Bungooono Geopark
Keywords:Natural hazard, Disaster prevention, Geology, Geomorphology, Geopark
In this way, natural hazards cause damages to sites, however they are geological and geomorphological phenomena and they have formed the land of the Geopark. The Aso pyroclastic flow that is the main subject of this Geopark just caused a much severe damage if a human being was alive at that time. Repeated floods caused deep valleys, waterfalls and cliffs. Many stone bridges were built across these valleys and many stone Buddha figures carved on these cliffs.
The activity of Geopark makes the citizens interest in the geology and topography of the district, and it may lead to improving awareness of disaster prevention.
