About this Book

Volcanic eruptions alter Earth's climate, have impacted civilizations, and are a dominant process affecting the evolution of the Earth and its atmosphere. Much effort has been focused on forecasts and mitigation strategies that can help reduce the risks from volcanic hazards. This special issue is a collection of 43 papers from the Journal of Geophysical Research (Solid Earth) on the geology, geochemistry, and petrology of the volcanoes; magma chamber dynamics; models of volcanism; structural properties of volcanoes; and associated volcanic hazards and their remediation.
