BiologyCBBiological Hazard - Coral BleachingBiologyReefs in 32 countries experienced dramatic bleaching in 1997-98. Bleaching results from the loss of microscopic algae that both color and nourish living corals. Water that is warmer than normal by only 2 to 3 F (1.1-1.6 C) has been linked to bleaching. Other factors that contribute to coral reef bleaching include nutrient and sediment runoff, pollution, coastal development, dynamiting of reefs, and natural storm damage.

TechnologyCRCBRNTechnologyCBRN is an acronym for Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear. It is in common use worldwide, to refer to incidents or weapons in which any of these four hazards have presented themselves. CBRN Defense (CBRND) is the acronym that is used in reference to CBRN passive protection, contamination avoidance and CBRN mitigation. CBRNE is the acronym for Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, and high-yield Explosives. A CBRN incident differs from a HAZMAT incident in both effect scope (i.e. CBRNE can be a mass casualty situation) and in intent. CBRN incidents are responded to under the assumption that they are deliberate, malicious acts with the intention to kill, sicken and/or disrupt society. Evidence preservation and perpetrator apprehension are of greater concern with CBRN incidents than with HAZMAT incidents.

MeteorologyCWCold WaveMeteorologyTemperature at or under -15 C° / 5 F which lasts more than 3 days.(Measured at zero altitude and 2m height.)
ComplexCEComplex EmergencyComplexThe official definition of a complex emergency is "a humanitarian crisis in a country, region or society where there is total or considerable breakdown of authority resulting from internal or external conflict and which requires an international response that goes beyond the mandate or capacity of any single agency and/ or the ongoing United Nations country program."
MeteorologyCOCosmic Event / ImpactMeteorologyAn impact event is the collision of a large meteorite, asteroid, comet, or other celestial object with the Earth or another planet. Throughout recorded history, hundreds of minor impact events (and exploding bolides) have been reported, with some occurrences causing deaths, injuries, property damage or other significant localised consequences. This event included the serious incident in the outer space.
MeteorologyDRDroughtMeteorologyA drought (or drouth [archaic]) is an extended period of months or years when a region notes a deficiency in its water supply. Generally, this occurs when a region receives consistently below average precipitation. It can have a substantial impact on the ecosystem and agriculture of the affected region. Although droughts can persist for several years, even a short, intense drought can cause significant damage and harm the local economy. This global phenomenon has a widespread impact on agriculture. The United Nations estimates that an area of fertile soil the size of Ukraine is lost every year because of drought, deforestation, and climate instability. Lengthy periods of drought have long been a key trigger for mass migration and played a key role in a number of ongoing migrations and other humanitarian crises in the Horn of Africa and the Sahel.

TechnologyEDEnvironment PollutionTechnologyThe presence of offensive, but not necessarily infectious, matter in the environment. For example, pollution may be by specific organic or inorganic chemicals, by physical agents such as dust, volcanic fallout, smoke, automobile fumes, radioactive material and animal feces and urine.
BilologyEPEpidemicBilologyIn epidemiology, an epidemic epi- meaning "upon or above" and demic- meaning "people", occurs when new cases of a certain disease, in a given human population, and during a given period, substantially exceed what is "expected," based on recent experience (the number of new cases in the population during a specified period of time is called the "incidence rate"). In recent usages, the disease is not required to be communicable; examples include cancer or heart disease. Another example includes the infamous Black Plague of the Middle Ages.
BilologyEHEpidemic HazardBilologyLow number infection but potentionally can cause big plague or mass sickness.
TechnologyEXExplosionTechnologyAny technical event amount to explosion.
TechnologyFRFireTechnologyFire events, which extend to big area. Display happens if the property damage is significant and/or somebody dies from a wound, and the number of injured persons is above 3.
EnvironmentalFFFlash FloodEnvironmentalThe flash flood is a rapid flooding of geomorphic low-lying areas - washes, rivers, dry lakes and basins. It may be caused by heavy rain associated with a storm, hurricane, or tropical storm or meltwater from ice or snow flowing over icesheets or snowfields. Flash floods can also occur after the collapse of an ice dam, debris dam or a human structure, such as a dam, for example, the Johnstown Flood of 1889. Flash floods are distinguished from a regular flood by a timescale less than six hours. The temporary availability of water is often utilised by plants with rapid germination and short growth cycle, and by specially adapted animal life.

TechnologyWFForest FireTechnologyForrest or scrub fire which has big extent irrespectively of damage and the number of injured persons. It serves to sign occurrent fire storm.
MeteorologyGWGiant Wave ImpactMeteorologyRogue waves (also known as freak waves, monster waves, killer waves, extreme waves, and abnormal waves) are relatively large and spontaneous ocean surface waves that are a threat even to large ships and ocean liners. In oceanography, they are more precisely defined as waves whose height is more than twice the significant wave height (SWH), which is itself defined as the mean of the largest third of waves in a wave record. Therefore rogue waves are not necessarily the biggest waves found at sea; they are, rather, surprisingly large waves for a given sea state. "Rogue waves are not tsunamis, which are set in motion by earthquakes [and] travel at high speed, building up as they approach the shore. Rogue waves seem to occur in deep water or where a number of physical factors such as strong winds and fast currents converge. This may have a focusing effect, which can cause a number of waves to join together."
MeteorologyHSHailstormMeteorologyA hailstorm is a meteorological event, being a storm in which a large amount of hail falls, which caused significant property and/or personal injury.
BiologyHAHarmful Algal BloomsBiologyA harmful algal bloom (HAB) is an algal bloom that causes negative impacts to other organisms via production of natural toxins, mechanical damage to other organisms, or by other means. HABs are often associated with large-scale marine mortality events and have been associated with various types of shellfish poisonings.
TechnologyHZHAZMATTechnologyA dangerous good is any solid, liquid, or gas that can harm people, other living organisms, property, or the environment. They are often subject to chemical regulations. An equivalent term, used almost exclusively in the United States, is hazardous material (hazmat or HAZMAT). Dangerous goods may be radioactive, flammable, explosive, toxic, corrosive, biohazardous, an oxidizer, an asphyxiant, a pathogen, an allergen, or may have other characteristics that render it hazardous in specific circumstances. Mitigating the risks associated with hazardous materials may require the application of safety precautions during their transport, use, storage and disposal. Most countries regulate hazardous materials by law, and they are subject to several international treaties as well.
