Global volcanic hazards and risk

Source(s):  Cambridge University Press

This book provides the first comprehensive assessment of global volcanic hazards and risk, presenting the state of the art in our understanding of global volcanic activity. It examines assessment and management capabilities, and considers the preparedness of the global scientific community and government agencies to manage volcanic hazards and risk. Particular attention is paid to volcanic ash, the most frequent and wide-ranging volcanic hazard.

The book was originally prepared for the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR), but it is also of great interest to government officials, the private sector, students and researchers. This book is a key resource for the disaster risk reduction community and for those interested in volcanology and natural hazards. A non-technical summary report is included for policy makers and general interest readers.
