Description
 
Worldwide, more than 1,300 volcanoes have erupted one or more times during the past 10,000 years. Since A.D. 1,000, more than 300,000 people have been killed directly or indirectly by volcanic activity. This article discusses the geophysical and geochemical monitoring of volcanoes -- known as volcanology -- which provides the data needed to predict eruptions and to issue timely warnings to emergency-response officials. It also discusses the need for effective mitigation of eruption-related hazards through the conduct of basic studies of volcanoes; these basic data are the cornerstone of more specialized investigations, such as hazards assessments, hazards-zonation maps. and long-term eruption forecasts. Illustrations.
