Special Publication 380

Volcanoes have played a profound role in shaping our planet, and volcanic activity is a major hazard locally, regionally and globally. Many volcanoes are, however, poorly accessible and sparsely monitored. Consequently, remote sensing is playing an increasingly important role in tracking volcano behaviour, while synoptic remote sensing techniques have begun to make major contributions to volcanological science. Volcanology is driven in part by the operational concerns of volcano monitoring and hazard management, but the goal of volcanological science is to understand the processes that underlie volcanic activity. This volume shows how we may reach a deeper understanding by integrating remote sensing measurements with modelling approaches and, if available, ground-based observations. It includes reviews, and papers that report technical advances and document key case studies. They span a range of remote sensing applications to volcanoes, from volcano deformation, thermal anomalies and gas fluxes, to the tracking of eruptive ash and gas plumes. The result is a state-of-the-art overview of the ever-growing importance of remote sensing to volcanology.

In this book we see how remote sensing can give relatively immediate forecasts of eruptions and how models can be used to enhance prediction. It gives much information on attempts at eruption and explosion prediction, both successful and unsuccessful. It shows that in some places alerts of eruptions in the following month have been very successful.

This book is easy to read and tells all levels of reader much about volcanoes and their internal structure as interpreted from space or the air, and represents good value even at a cover price of £100, let alone the £50 discounted price to Fellows of the Society.
