volcanic RISK scenarios

Do you know that with OpenQuake you can generate volcano risk scenarios?

 

During the CRAVE project, we worked with multiple institutions to allow the employment of the same exposure dataset and risk framework for the estimation of the expected losses and affected population in a single event (volcano or earthquake).

In this module, you can learn how to estimate damage and losses due to a volcanic eruption. Volcanic eruptions can involve multiple hazards  such as: lava flows, lahars, ash and tephra fall, and pyroclastic density currents.

Starting from multiple hazard footprints, one can estimate the impact on the population and the built environment using the OpenQuake engine.

VoLCANIC RISK SCENARIO

Starting from the hazard footprints of a volcanic eruption, in this session, the impact (damage and losses) for a given scenario can be evaluated.

 

Learn basic concepts for risk assessment, such as exposure and vulnerability models, prepare the required input files for OpenQuake, and run an example and visualise damage and loss maps.

The example is an application to the "Nevado del Ruiz" volcano in Colombia, thanks to the collaborative work carried out with the Colombian Geological Survey (SGC).

Main concepts:

Volcanic hazard footprints in OpenQuake, exposure models, vulnerability models, damage and loss statistics and maps.

Duration:

3 hours
