Fire and mud, eruptions and landslides of Mount Pinatubo, Philippines


The 1991 eruptions of Mount Pinatubo and subsequent widespread lahars are signal events both in volcanology and volcanic hazards mitigation. The goals of this monograph are to capture a vast array of observations about the remarkable events before, during, and since the climactic eruption of Mount Pinatubo, to synthesize those observations into an understanding of Pinatubo as a dynamic, complex volcanic system (within an equally dynamic and complex social setting), and to make both observations and interpretations accessible to volcanologists around the world, especially those who must cope with similar crises in the future.
