This open access book provides a comprehensive overview of volcanic crisis research, the goal being to establish ways of successfully applying volcanology in practice and to identify areas that need to be addressed for future progress. It shows how volcano crises are managed in practice, and helps to establish best practices. Consequently the book brings together authors from all over the globe who work with volcanoes, ranging from observatory volcanologists, disaster practitioners and government officials to NGO-based and government practitioners to address three key aspects of volcanic crises. First, the book explores the unique nature of volcanic hazards, which makes them a particularly challenging threat to forecast and manage, due in part to their varying spatial and temporal characteristics. Second, it presents lessons learned on how to best manage volcanic events based on a number of crises that have shaped our understanding of volcanic hazards and crises management. Third, it discusses the diverse and wide-ranging aspects of communication involved in crises, which merge old practices and new technologies to accommodate an increasingly challenging and globalised world. The information and insights presented here are essential to tapping established knowledge, moving towards more robust volcanic crises management, and understanding how the volcanic world is perceived from a range of standpoints and contexts around the globe.

There are over 1300 active volcanoes worldwide and many more dormant or extinct. Some are developed as tourist destinations; others are not, but have great potential. Mount Fuji in Japan attracts over 100 million visitors per year and has immense cultural and spiritual significance, while a number of volcanic areas in national parks, for example Teide in Spain, Yellowstone in the US, Vesuvius in Italy and Tongariro in New Zealand, attract between one to four million tourists each year. In the last decade the designation of nearly 50 geoparks around the world has highlighted their potential for tourism development.This book provides the first global review and assessment of the sustainable use of active and dormant volcanic and geothermal environments for geotourism. The volcano-based tourism sector is further augmented through a closely linked range of geothermal resources and attractions, such as geysers and hot springs, which are discussed in detail throughout individual chapters covering all key volcanic and geothermal regions around the world. It is shown that volcano and geothermal tourism is a subsection of nature-based geotourism and incorporates a variety of other tourism categories such as adventure tourism, extreme tourism, ecotourism, green tourism, educational tourism, and hot spring tourism. This comprehensive book covers the most important issues of this growing tourism sector whilst incorporating relevant global research, making it an essential resource for all in the field.Includes colour plates.

At once a powerful novel of ideas and a dramatic, suspenseful narrative. The action takes place over a few months in the lives of two men--Jinpei Suda, a volcanologist, and Durand, an unfrocked French Catholic priest. Both men have become obsessed by Akadaké, a quiescent volcano that is either in its death throes or taking on renewed life. For both men, the question of whether the volcano is still active or not becomes their overriding concern, the question that justifies their own lives. Suda, retired and ignored by his family, has spent fifteen years studying the volcano and is convinced that it is dying. His expert opinion is vital to an important business tycoon who plans to build a lavish resort hotel on the volcano's higher slopes. Durand, ill and bitter, is equally certain that the volcano will erupt, pouring streams of lava down on the religious retreat being built by Father Sato, a complacent Japanese priest and Durand's self-satisfied successor. Overshadowing all their lives is the volcano. To Durand, it is a symbol of evil and a possible judgment on people who can never understand the significance of sin and redemption. To Suda, it must remain dormant or wreck the thesis on which he has spent much of his life.
