An analysis of the effects of natural hazards on society does not depend solely on a region's topographic or climatic exposure, but rather on the region's institutional resilience to natural processes that ultimately determine whether they will result in a natural hazard or not.
The variables included cardinal exposure or aspect (Exposure), island size (Is_type), climatic exposure (Clim_exp), beach quality (Beach), percent slope (Grade), drainage (Drainage), size of site area (Area), and distance to fresh water (Water).
Cardinal exposure, island size and climatic exposure were derived directly from the GIS and from aerial photographs.
