Next Episode of Living with Volcanoes is
New 2 part series studying the causes and effects of volcanic activity - from the science behind eruptions to the social, economic and environmental impacts.
A perfect case study of a volcano in an LEDC. The resource provides a clear explanation of the processes causing Montserrat's recent volcanic activity. It then assesses the social, economic and environmental impacts of the continuing eruptions. The likelihood of Montserrat becoming self-sufficient is explored with sections looking at: the potential of Montserrat's tourist industry; strategies for disaster response and preparedness; and projects to improve biodiversity.
Focusing primarily on Iceland's 2010 eruption, this resource first asks why people choose to live in volcanic regions? The opportunities for geo-thermal power, tourism and agriculture are considered. It then explores the impacts of the Eyjafjallajokull eruption and responses to it including the role of: emergency planning; early warning systems and better volcanic ash forecasting
