Information - NH5.01 Volcanic Hazards: pre-eruptive warnings, quantification of hazards and mitigation of risk (co-listed in GMPV)
This session addresses hazard assessment related to the reawakening of volcanoes. In preparing for a volcanic crises an arsenal of data and information need to be considered in order to effectively assess associated hazards for the mitigation of risk. The analysis of all pre-eruptive processes in terms of hazard should imply the definition of when an eruption will occur and of which type it will be. Effective management of information and its flow as well as cross-boundary interaction is of paramount importance in order to link data collection, data analysis and evaluation and their application for preventive measures. For this session we would like to solicit contributions pertaining to the analysis of data, as well as the evaluation and management of knowledge for the preparation for a volcanic crisis (short-term and long-term) based on the experience obtained before and during past eruptions as well as knowledge gained in the preparation for upcoming events. Contributions to the session regarding data analysis may include the quantification of pre-eruptive signals such as potential trigger mechanisms of volcanic crises; e.g.; magmatic, tectonic, slope failure or other external/internal factors. Contributions to the evaluation of knowledge may include the modelling of pre-eruptive processes using data obtained from geological, geochemical, geophysical or structural studies during volcano monitoring. We also invite contributions on volcanic susceptibility, eruption modelling as well as scenario and event-tree planning. These areas play an important role for knowledge management by condensing different scientific information at the interface of science and public for the preparation for a crisis and the mitigation of risks
