  • Volcanic Management
    • Prediction
      • generally volcanoes give warning signs giving people days, weeks, or months notice
      • Study eruption history of volcano
      • Measure gas emissions, land swelling and ground water levels
      • measure shock waves generated by magma travelling upwards
    • Protection
      • best protection is evacuating the area prior to the eruption however this will still destroy homes and livelihoods left behin
      • hazard assessment trying to determine the areas of the greatest risk which should influence land use planning
      • Dig trenches to divert the lava
      • Build barriers to slow down lava flows
      • water on the lava to slow it down by cooling
