Let's talk more about volcanic hazard maps - a blog post

Erupting volcanoes can pose many hazards, including volcanic ash, lava flows, pyroclastic flows and lahars. In this blog post, Associate Editor Jan Lindsay discusses the importance of volcanic hazard maps in highlighting the areas where these hazards may occur and what needs to be done to improve their development and use.

New Hazard Map Article Type

map iconHazard mapping hasn’t been getting the attention it deserves and we’re going to do something about it! Journal of Applied Volcanology invites authors to show off their volcanic hazard and risk mapping work in a newly dedicated article type.

Aims and Scope

Journal of Applied Volcanology is an international journal with a focus on applied research relating to volcanism and particularly its societal impacts. Characterising volcanic impacts and associated risk relies on not only quantifying physical threat but also understanding social and physical vulnerability and resilience. The broad aim of volcanologists in this domain is to increase public resilience to volcanic risk via research that reduces both human fatalities and volcanic impacts on livelihoods, infrastructure, and the economy. Journal of Applied Volcanology fills an important gap for scientists who want to publish research that addresses this aim and wish to reach a broad audience.
