Risk and uncertainty assessment for natural hazards by Jonathan Rougier( Book )

7 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Assessment of risk and uncertainty is crucial for natural hazard risk management, facilitating risk communication and informing strategies to successfully mitigate our society's vulnerability to natural disasters. Written by some of the world's leading experts, this book provides a state-of-the-art overview of risk and uncertainty assessment in natural hazards. It presents the core statistical concepts using clearly defined terminology applicable across all types of natural hazards and addresses the full range of sources of uncertainty, the role of expert judgement and the practice of uncertainty elicitation. The core of the book provides detailed coverage of all the main hazard types and concluding chapters address the wider societal context of risk management. This is an invaluable compendium for academic researchers and professionals working in the fields of natural hazards science, risk assessment and management and environmental science and will be of interest to anyone involved in natural hazards policy"--Publisher description
Montserrat's andesite volcano by David Lea( Visual )

7 editions published between 1999 and 2007 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Documents the eruption of Montserrat's andesite volcano from its beginnings in 1995, telling not only the story of the eruption, but also looking to the major volcanic processes of andesite volacanoes. It describes the products and effects of such eruptions, introduces modern methods of monitoring an active volcano, and shows the human consequences of volcanic activity on a small island community

Santorini Volcano by Timothy H Druitt( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in Undetermined and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Santorini has long fascinated geologists, with some important early work on volcanoes being conducted there. Since 1980, research groups at Cambridge University, and later at the University of Bristol and Blaise Pascal University in Clermont-Ferrand, have collected a large amount of data on the stratigraphy, geochemistry, geochronology and petrology of the volcanics. The volcanic field has been remapped at a scale of 1:10,000. A remarkable picture of cyclic volcanic activity and magmatic evolution has emerged from this work. Much of this work has remained unpublished until now." "The Memoir synthesizes all the data from the Cambridge/Bristol/Clermont groups, and integrates published data from other research groups. It provides the latest interpretation of the tectonic and magmatic evolution of Santorini. It is accompanied by the new 1:10,000 full-colour geological map of the island."--Jacket
