Source(s): Newswise Inc. University at Buffalo

Michael Sheridan, PhD, Volcanologist and Professor Emeritus of Geology and Alison Graettinger, PhD, Volcanologist and Postdoctoral Researcher at the University at Buffalo respond to questions related to volcanoes located in populated areas on the pages of Newswise. The topics touch upon the reasons why areas around volcanoes are popular habitats for people; on the difficulties of early warnings; the latest developments in promoting safety, the hazards that communities near volcanoes face and they also offer advice on how people can stay safe. The volcanologists discuss volcanoes all over the world, including ones in Italy, Mexico, Indonesia and the USA.
