Volcanic threat in developing countries of the Asia-Pacific region: probabilistic hazard assessment, population risks, and information gaps

Simpson, Alanna; Johnson, Richard; Cummins, Phil


The importance of disaster reduction has gained increased awareness within the international development community and thereby highlighted a need for a preliminary assessment of natural hazard risk in developing countries of the Asia-Pacific, including that for volcanic eruption. In this paper, we present a key component of such an assessment, which involved qualifying the frequency and potential consequences of large-Volcanic Explosivity Index of four or more-volcanic eruptions.
