Volcano Deformation

Daniel Dzurisin

Volcano DeformationVolcano Deformation is the first book devoted to volcano geodesy, a specialisation of the still-young science of volcanology. It forms a part of the whole catalogue of methods used to monitor a restless or an erupting volcano, and demonstrates how risk from hazardous eruptions can be reduced.

With contributions from some of the most experienced and knowledgeable experts in the field, the book describes the state-of-the-art techniques used by volcanologists to successfully predict volcanic eruptions. With chapters on GPS and synthetic aperture radar interferometry, Volcano Deformation covers both the ‘classical’ and emerging methodologies, and looks at the future challenges faced by scientists when predicting volcanic eruptions.
