  1. 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...

    20 Nov 2014 | Contributor(s): E Bruce Pitman, Abani Patra

    This lecture was given during the short-course titled "Coping with volcanic unrest" held in Quito (Ecuador) on November 2014.The presentation illustrates some essential key-elements to take into account in the preparation of a simulation exercise, providing useful suggestion taken...

  8. Pyroclastic density currents and local topography as seen with the conveyer model

    15 Apr 2014

    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...

  9. 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...
