How can we better understand, explain, and predict group and organizational responses to disasters? Such questions are not ulike many others that social scientists ask. Hence, the methodological probalems confronted by persons studying disaster responses are for the most part similar to problems confronted by those analyzing other social phenomena. There is neither a special set of strategies which might be referred to as disaster methodology nor a spearate set of techniques which might be labeled disaster research methods.
