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.
Table of Contents:
- is an up-to-date, comprehensive treatment of volcano geodesy and its applications;
- describes how volcano geodesy complements other volcano monitoring approaches and tools;
- gives an extensive treatment of the key lessons volcanologists have learned at well-monitored deforming volcanoes.
- includes a DVD with all of the book's figures in reproducible form plus an expanded version of Chapter 8, Analytical Volcano Deformation
