About this book

 This book provides a unique visual experience, showing

satellite images of volcanic eruptions worldwide and

detailed observations from the North Pacific ‘ring of fire’.

Daily volcano monitoring and analysis from this region have

resulted in one of the most detailed collections of satellite

images in the world. An international team of experts has

provided comprehensive coverage of the state-of-the-art

techniques for real-time volcano monitoring and analysis

using space-borne data, as well as satellite data acquisition

and analysis, ash-dispersion models, wind field data, case

studies, hazard mitigation, transmitting warnings and

discussion of global impacts of eruptions.
