VOLCANO: Invitation Cities on Volcanoes 10 – Session 2.6 Use and Effectiveness of Volcanic Hazard and Risk Tools in Volcanic Crisis Management (texto original em Inglês) - Notícia OVGA 09-03-2018



We would like to invite you to attend and contribute with an abstract to the session "Use and effectiveness of volcanic hazard and risk tools in volcanic crisis management" as part of the Symposium 3 in the upcoming "Cities on Volcanoes 10” conference to be held in Naples, Italy in September 2 - 7, 2018.

Overview of the session 2.6

'Researchers are developing an increasing number of tools designed to assist civil authorities and volcano observatories with preparedness and planning for volcanic crises. Examples of such tools include short-term eruption forecasting frameworks, hazard models, impact and risk assessment platforms, crisis hazard maps, and early warning systems. This session welcomes discussion around the use, effectiveness, and applications of such tools in practice, i.e. actual volcanic crisis situations. We encourage submissions that provide examples of situations where the tools have been tested, applied, or used in coordinated training, contingency planning, or managing volcanic crises. We also welcome submissions that cover the co-development and co-design of hazard and risk management tools through collaboration with stakeholders. This session aims to integrate researcher and stakeholder experiences, both in the development and in the real-case application of such volcanological tools, and submissions from both researchers and emergency managers are welcome. Key questions we would like to address with this session are: Did the use of such tools facilitate crisis management in the way that was intended? Did their use facilitate useful interaction between scientists and civil authorities, enabling efficient communication and information flow? Did the information provided via the tool contribute to the decisions that were made, and if not, why not? The focus will be on lessons learned from the implementation of these tools to help guide future development and more effective exchange of information between scientists and decision makers.'

A session proposed under the auspices of the IAVCEI Commission on Hazard and Risk
