About this book

This book aims to give an overview on the present state of volcanic lake research, covering topics such as volcano monitoring, the chemistry, dynamics and degassing of acidic crater lakes, mass-energy-chemical-isotopic balance approaches, limnology and degassing of Nyos-type lakes, the impact on the human and natural environment, the eruption products and impact of crater lake breaching eruptions, numerical modeling of gas clouds and lake eruptions, thermo-hydro-mechanical and deformation modeling, CO2 fluxes from lakes, volcanic lakes observed from space, biological activity, continuous monitoring techniques, and some aspects more. We hope to offer an updated manual on volcanic lake research, providing classic research methods, and point towards a more high-tech approach of future volcanic lake research and continuous monitoring.

Reviews

“Volcanic Lakes, the first book on lakes in volcanic domains, consists of a set of 24 chapters written by pioneers and other researchers who have published extensive works on volcanic lakes in recent years. … the book is worthwhile resource that I strongly recommend researchers and mainly students pursuing a career focused on limnology, microbiology, volcanic monitoring, and volcanic hazards, but also volcanologists dealing with monogenetic volcanoes and hazard prevention to read.” (Boris Chako Tchamabé, Bulletin of Volcanology, Vol. 77 (82), 2015)
