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.

“This 363-page book is well written, self-contained and provides all up to date information for anyone interested in the volcanic activity over the North Pacific, and a must have for everyone interested in volcanology and remote sensing. It is full of colored, high-quality images that help the reader to conceive the presented material which also makes the book more appealing.” (Alexandra Karamitrou, Pure and Applied Geophysics, Vol. 174, 2017)
