Effective Communications of Volcanic Hazards Warnings
This is one of a series of blogs providing a brief overview of some of the key papers I have written in relation to early warning systems and disaster risk reduction measures:
Fearnley C.J. (2019) Volcanic Hazards Warnings: Effective Communications of. In: Meyers R. (eds) Encyclopedia of Complexity and Systems Science. Springer, Berlin, Heidelberg
This is an entry to the Encyclopedia of Complexity and Systems Science available online. The chapter provides an overview of the particular challenges to volcanic crisis communication, before providing a more detailed chronology and history of the evolution of early warning systems for natural hazards. The chapter focuses then on volcano warning and the emergence and challenges of standardisation for volcano warnings.
