1st IAVCEI/GVM Workshop: "From Volcanic Hazard to Risk Assessment", Geneva, 27-29 June 2018
18 Dec 2018 | Contributor(s): Costanza Bonadonna, Sebastien Biass, Eliza S Calder, Corine Frischknecht, Chris Eric Gregg, Susanna Jenkins, Sue C Loughlin, Scira Menoni, Shinji Takarada, Tom Wilson
The complexity of volcanic risk analysis typically resides in the interaction of multiple hazard, vulnerability and exposure aspects dynamically acting over various spatial and temporal scales. Risk analyses provide an evidence-based approach to development and implementation of proactive...

TError: towards a better quantification of the uncertainty propagated during the characterization of tephra deposits
28 Nov 2014 | Contributor(s): Sebastien Biass, Gholamohssein Bagheri, William Aeberhard, Costanza Bonadonna
NOTE The code is now maintained on GitHub: https://github.com/e5k/TErrorFollow updates on: https://e5k.github.io/ Eruption Source Parameters (ESP; e.g. plume height, erupted volume/mass, mass eruption rate, eruption duration) inferred from tephra deposits are associated with large degrees...
MeMoVolc workshop on the "Dynamics of volcanic explosive eruptions", Consensual Document
15 Jul 2014 | Publications | Contributor(s): Costanza Bonadonna, Raffaello Cioni, Antonio Costa, Tim Druitt, Jeremy Phillips, Laura Pioli
This workshop served to assess the main advantages and shortcomings of existing eruption classification schemes and to identify open questions and research priorities that could help improve our understanding of volcanic explosive eruptions. We identified the main parameters and processes...
