Volcanoes have always been a fascinating subject to scientists and a favourite topic for the general public. This book is a visual learning experience as recorded on satellite images of volcanic eruptions and a manual describing how it is used for operational satellite monitoring. The atlas will show examples of the largest eruptions worldwide and detailed observations from the northern Pacific "ring of fire". Daily volcano monitoring and analysis in North Pacific Ocean region have resulted in one of the most detailed collections of satellite images in the world, detailing state-of-the-art techniques for real-time volcano monitoring and analysis using space-borne data. Detailed discussion is provided 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.

Volcanoes have always been a fascinating subject to scientists and a favourite topic for the general public. This book is a visual learning experience as recorded on satellite images of volcanic eruptions and a manual describing how it is used for operational satellite monitoring. The book fills a tremendous gap in the science of volcano remote sensing. The atlas will show examples of the largest eruptions worldwide and detailed observations from the northern Pacific "ring of fire". Daily volcano monitoring and analysis in North Pacific Ocean region have resulted in one of the most detailed collections of satellite images in the world, detailing state-of-the-art techniques for real-time volcano monitoring and analysis using space-borne data. Detailed discussion is provided 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.
