Volcanic Risk Scenario using OpenQuake

Available Online

Towards Uniform Risk Assessment due to Volcanoes and EarthQuakes

  • Starts 8 Jul

Service Description

This is the Intra-Conference Workshop of Cities on Volcanoes 11 (CoV11). Do you know that with the OpenQuake software you can generate volcano risk scenarios? Starting from the hazard footprints of a volcanic eruption (such as lava flows, lahars, ash and tephra fall, and pyroclastic density currents), we will estimate the impact of a hypothetical eruption in the "Nevado del Ruiz" volcano in Colombia. In this session, we will present the basic concepts for risk assessment, such as exposure and vulnerability models, prepare the required input files for OpenQuake, and run an example to visualise damage and loss maps (economic and human impact).
