  1. 1st IAVCEI/GVM Workshop: "From Volcanic Hazard to Risk Assessment", Geneva, 27-29 June 2018

    18 Dec 2018

    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...

  5. eject model

    01 Feb 2011

    Eject is a user-friendly model that calculates the trajectories of blocks that are ballistically ejected from volcanic craters. It has also been used to calculate ballistic trajectories of other objects in other other settings, including missiles and bullets.Details are...

  6. Estimating Volcanic Risk in the Lesser Antilles

    26 Sep 2013 | Contributor(s): E Bruce Pitman, Abani Patra

    The potential catastrophic effects of future volcanic eruptions in the Lesser Antilles can be decreased by the utilisation of effective risk quantification measures and their subsequent incorporation into disaster risk reduction strategies. A volcanic risk study conducted by the Norwegian...
