Abstract Title:  “Emerging methods for forecasting volcanic eruptions:  Examples from Central America and Alaska”

Abstract:

Volcanic eruptions pose an increasing threat to human lives and infrastructure in today’s rapidly globalizing world, leading to a need for more-sensitive and accurate tools for detecting and interpreting signs of volcanic unrest. Fortunately, most volcanoes give subtle indications of their future eruptive potential that can be detected using state-of-the-art seismic instrumentation. In this talk I will explore the recent development of several new paradigms for eruption forecasting and their implications for our understanding of how volcanoes work.
