Forecasting and Planning for Volcanic Hazards, Risks, and Disasters expands and complements the subject and themes in Volcanic Hazards, Risks and Disasters. Together, the two volumes represent an exhaustive compendium on volcanic hazards, risks, and disasters. Volume two presents a comprehensive picture of the volcano dynamics relevant for volcanic hazard forecasts. It also includes case studies of the associated risks and aspects like operational volcano observatory responses, communication before and across volcanic crises, emergency planning, social science aspects, and resilience from volcanic disasters. Forecasting and Planning for Volcanic Hazards, Risks, and Disasters takes a geoscientific approach to the topic while integrating the social and economic issues related to volcanoes and volcanic hazards and disasters.
- Features the expertise of top volcanologists, seismologists, geologists, and geophysicists
- Presents the latest research - including case studies of prominent volcanoes and volcanic hazards and disasters - on causality, economic and social impacts, and preparedness and mitigation
- Includes numerous tables, maps, diagrams, illustrations, and photographs to aid in grasping key concept

Paolo Papale began his research career after graduating in Geological Sciences at the University of Pisa in 1990. After numerous scholarships with the INGV and the CNR, he became a contract researcher with the CNR in 1996, subsequently a permanent researcher with the ING in 1999, and finally Research Director with the INGV in 2003, after having won a public competition as Full Professor in 2001 at the University of Calabria. He has published about 50 scientific articles in international scientific journals and ISI books for international dissemination on physical-mathematical modeling and numerical simulation of magmatic and volcanic processes, modeling of thermodynamic properties and magma rheology, and quantification of volcanic hazards. He has participated in numerous projects of the European Community, and in national and international projects in the fields of volcanic danger and volcanic physics.
