This study evaluates the marine hazard, recent events and summarizes the general characteristics of hazards related to marine and coastal areas. The operational and administrative issues on disaster management are discussed. The new research directions on assessment and mitigiation of the marine hazards are presented. The international protective and preventive measures, hazard perception by the public, awareness through public education, community participation, more international collaboration are emphesized.
