This is the first comprehensive assessment of global volcanic hazards and risk. It examines our assessment capabilities, and considers the preparedness of the global scientific community and government agencies to manage volcanic hazards and risk.
This book has a single purpose: to explain how it is even possible to reconstruct the history of the Earth from data available in the present. The emphasis is methodological: rather than explaining what is known, we shall look at how it is known.
