Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Climate change
  • China
  • Psychology

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Natural hazard, Risk assessment, Discipline, Vulnerability assessment and Risk analysis. Sven Fuchs has included themes like Cartography, Land use, Environmental resource management and Environmental planning in his Natural hazard study. His studies in Risk assessment integrate themes in fields like Range, Weibull distribution and Civil engineering.

He conducts interdisciplinary study in the fields of Discipline and Social vulnerability through his works. Sven Fuchs combines subjects such as Statistical hypothesis testing, Cumulative distribution function, Vulnerability curve, Fluvial sediment and Regression with his study of Vulnerability assessment. His Risk analysis study, which is part of a larger body of work in Risk analysis, is frequently linked to Interconnectedness, bridging the gap between disciplines.

His most cited work include:

  • Towards an empirical vulnerability function for use in debris flow risk assessment (226 citations)
  • Susceptibility versus resilience to mountain hazards in Austria - paradigms of vulnerability revisited (161 citations)
  • Mitigating mountain hazards in Austria – legislation, risk transfer, and awareness building (113 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His main research concerns Natural hazard, Environmental planning, Environmental resource management, Vulnerability assessment and Flood myth. His Natural hazard study combines topics in areas such as Risk analysis, Human settlement, Environmental protection, Range and Risk assessment. His Risk assessment study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Cartography, Weibull distribution and Civil engineering.

His Environmental planning research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Flood risk management and Social transformation. His Environmental resource management research includes elements of Debris flow, Land use, Physical vulnerability and Resilience. His studies in Vulnerability assessment integrate themes in fields like Disaster risk reduction, Social vulnerability, Risk analysis, Flash flood and Flood risk assessment.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Natural hazard (38.21%)
  • Environmental planning (25.00%)
  • Environmental resource management (23.58%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2019-2021)?

  • Environmental planning (25.00%)
  • Flood myth (16.04%)
  • Natural hazard (38.21%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His primary areas of study are Environmental planning, Flood myth, Natural hazard, Environmental resource management and Water resource management. His study on Disaster risk reduction is often connected to Focus, Relocation, Social learning and Distrust as part of broader study in Environmental planning. His research integrates issues of Risk governance and Extreme weather in his study of Flood myth.

Development economics, Institutional approach, Risk perception and Social power are fields of study that intersect with his Natural hazard study. His Environmental resource management research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Vulnerability assessment and Flooding. His research investigates the link between Water resource management and topics such as Physical vulnerability that cross with problems in Flooding.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Financial recovery schemes in Austria: how planned relocation is used as an answer to future flood events (8 citations)
  • The influence of tailored risk communication on individual adaptive behaviour (7 citations)
  • A generic physical vulnerability model for floods: review and concept for data-scarce regions (5 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • China
  • Climate change
  • Psychology

His primary areas of investigation include Flood myth, Damages, Environmental planning, Risk analysis and Disaster risk reduction. His Flood myth research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Risk governance and Extreme weather. Preparedness, Resilience, Scale and Resource efficiency are fields of study that overlap with his Damages research.

Environmental planning and Residual risk are commonly linked in his work. His Risk analysis study incorporates themes from Flood risk assessment, Multivariate statistics and Built environment. He performs multidisciplinary study in Disaster risk reduction and Relocation in his work.
