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...

PYFLOW_2.0. A new tool for estimating the impact parameters and the deposition rate and time of dilute PDCs based on field data
22 Nov 2017 | Contributor(s): Fabio Dioguardi, Daniela Mele, Pierfrancesco Dellino
PYFLOW_2.0 is a hazard tool for the calculation of the impact parameters of dilute pyroclastic density currents (DPDCs). DPDCs represent the dilute turbulent type of gravity flows that occur during explosive volcanic eruptions; their hazard is the result of their mobility and the capability...
La erupción del volcán Calbuco en 2015: Volcanología, sociedad y ecosistemas
25 Apr 2017 | Contributor(s): Jorge E. Romero
La erupción del 22-23 de abril de 2015 del Volcán Calbuco tuvo impactos en las actividades sociales y ecosistemas en el sur de Chile y en Argentina, debido a la espesa caída de piroclastos, corrientes calientes de gases y rocas, además de flujos de lodo...

Confort 15 (Conflow improvement)
22 Apr 2016 | Contributor(s): Silvia Campagnola, Claudia Romano, Larry G Mastin, Alessandro Vona
We present an updated version of the Conflow model, an open-source numerical model for flow in eruptive conduits during steady-state pyroclastic eruptions (Mastin and Ghiorso, 2000). In the Confort 15 program, several updates were considered:The rheological parameters of the model are...
VUELCO deliverable 7.5: Guidelines for the best practice of scientific management of volcanic unrest
09 Sep 2015 | Contributor(s): dmitri rouwet
Volcanic eruption forecasting and hazard assessment are multi-disciplinary processes with scientific and social implications. Our limited knowledge and the randomness of the processes behind a volcanic eruption yields the need of quantifying uncertainties on volcano dynamics. With deterministic...
