About this book

Volcanoes have always been a fascinating subject to scientists and a favorite topic for the general public. Monitoring Volcanoes in the North Pacific is a visual learning experience as recorded on satellite images of volcanic eruptions and a manual describing how they is used for operational satellite monitoring.

Monitoring Volcanoes in the North Pacific fills a huge gap in the science of volcano remote sensing. The atlas shows examples of the largest eruptions worldwide and detailed observations from the northern Pacific "ring of fire".

Daily volcano monitoring and analysis in the north Pacific Ocean region have resulted in one of the most detailed collections of satellite images in the world, using state-of-the-art techniques for real-time volcano monitoring and analysis using space-borne data.

Detailed discussion is provided in Monitoring Volcanoes in the North Pacific on satellite data acquisition and analysis, ash-dispersion models, wind field data, case studies, hazard mitigation, transmitting warnings and discussion of global impacts of eruptions.

The Springer package Includes a CD-ROM containing all the images as well as an associated website which will be regularly updated, showing results from new and current eruptions.
