About this book

This book describes the techniques used by volcanologists to successfully predict several recent volcanic eruptions by combining information from various scientific disciplines, including geodetic techniques. Many recent developments in the use of state-of-the-art and emerging techniques, including Global Positioning System and Synthetic Aperture Radar Interferometry, mean that most books on volcanology are out of date, and this book includes chapters devoted entirely to these two techniques.

From the reviews: "This monumental, first-of-a-kind, up-to-date book on volcano geodesy compiled by Dzurisin ! fills an important gap in the rapidly expanding literature discussing the young science of Volcanology. ! The outstanding list of references offers more than 400 citations; the extra material contains all the book's figures plus an expanded version of analytical source models. ! The chapter authors are eminently qualified, and their book is a marvelous contribution to the highly complex, important, and challenging profession of volcano monitoring. Summing Up: Highly recommended." (T. L. T. Grose, CHOICE, Vol. 44 (11), July, 2007)
