Information - NH3.1 Volcanic Hazard Assessment and Risk Quantification (co-listed in GMPV)
Geophysical and geochemical signals at dormant volcanoes must be evaluated as potential precursors to reawakening and impending eruption. There are several recent examples of volcanic re-activation after long repose intervals culminating in explosive eruption, but non-eruptive behavior is equally documented in a number of cases. The dilemma scientists are confronted with is how to assess future behavior and to forecast the likelihood of an eruption at a reawakening volcano, when critical data from previous activity is missing. The aim of this session is to provide a forum for exchange of ideas concerning scientific criteria for the assessment of reawakening volcanoes for hazard assessment and risk mitigation.
