1st IAVCEI/GVM Workshop: "From Volcanic Hazard to Risk Assessment", Geneva, 27-29 June 2018
18 Dec 2018 | Contributor(s): E Bruce Pitman, Abani Patra
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...

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...

New Methods and Computer Codes for Volcanic Modelling
18 Jul 2013 | Workshops
This workshop was undertaken before the IAVCEI conference in July 2013, complementing the session on "Stress, strain and mass changes at active volcanoes. It brings together seismic and geodetic methods and computational approaches for modelling volcanic processes.Material presented includes:1....
Pyroclastic density currents and local topography as seen with the conveyer model
15 Apr 2014 | Publications
Pyroclastic density currents (PDCs) are multiphase flows generated during explosive volcanic eruptions, and they move down the volcano, and over the surrounding topography. The flow-topography interaction can play a fundamental role in the sedimentary processes, and in the resulting deposit...
24 Feb 2010 | Miscellaneous | Contributor(s): Shawn Rice, Nicholas J. Kisseberth
The contribution process is intended to be much like composing an e-mail: You'll start with writing the introduction and main content of your contribution and later attach files to it (video, PDFs, etc).The abstract is typically a one or two paragraph description of your contribution.
