Description

Focusing primarily on the 2010 eruption, this resource first asks why people choose to live in volcanic regions? The opportunities for geo-thermal power, tourism and agriculture are considered. It then explores the impacts of the Eyjafjallajokull eruption and responses to it including the role of: emergency planning; early warning systems and better volcanic ash forecasting. A fantastic case study for MEDC/LEDC geo-hazard comparison when used with the Montserrat or Haiti titles.
