Presenting the state of the art in our understanding of global volcanism, this is the first comprehensive assessment of global volcanic hazards and risk. Regional profiles and local case studies are provided online for all countries with active volcanoes, making this an invaluable reference for the disaster risk reduction community. This title is also available as Open Access.
