The importance of disaster reduction has gained increased awareness within the international development community and thereby highlighted a need for a preliminary assessment of natural hazard risk in developing countries of the Asia–Pacific, including that for volcanic eruption. In this paper, we present a key component of such an assessment, which involved qualifying the frequency and potential consequences of large—Volcanic Explosivity Index of four or more—volcanic eruptions. The… Expand
Probabilistic Volcanic Ash Hazard Analysis (PVAHA) II: assessment of the Asia-Pacific region using VAPAH
Volcanic ash is an increasingly common, long-range hazard, impacting on our globalised society. The Asia-Pacific region is rapidly developing as a major contributor to the global population andExpand
Mapping the expected annual fatality risk of volcano on a global scale
According to The Centre for Research on the Epidemiology of Disasters (CRED) Disaster Events Database (EM-DAT 2013), during 1900-2012, volcanoes killed nearly one hundred thousand people worldwideExpand
Evaluating a volcanic ash ground-loading hazard at Gunung Ciremai, West Java, Indonesia using PF3D
Abstract Volcanic ash represents a serious hazard to communities living in the vicinity of active volcanoes in developing countries such as Indonesia. Geoscience Australia (GA), theExpand
Probabilistic Volcanic Ash Hazard Analysis (PVAHA) I: development of the VAPAH tool for emulating multi-scale volcanic ash fall analysis
Significant advances have been made in recent years in probabilistic analysis of geological hazards. Analyses of this kind are concerned with producing estimates of the probability of occurrence of aExpand
Geohazards in Indonesia: Earth science for disaster risk reduction – introduction
Indonesia encompasses one of the most active tectonic regions on Earth. Its territory includes over 18 000 km of major tectonic plate boundary, more than twice that of Japan or Papua New Guinea (Fig.Expand
Development of python-FALL3D: a modified procedure for modelling volcanic ash dispersal in the Asia-Pacific region
Volcanic ash is the most widespread of all volcanic hazards and has the potential to affect hundreds of thousands, or even millions, of people in the densely populated islands of Indonesia. There isExpand
Lashed by sharks, pelted by demons, drowned for apostasy: the value of myths that explain geohazards in the Asia-Pacific region
The critical analysis of myths (traditional oral tales) can lead to an improved understanding of geohazards. This paper examines three groups of myths (volcano, earthquake, and coastal change) fromExpand
Economic Rationality of Residents Living in the Area Prone to Merapi Volcanic Disaster
The research concerned here was to know the economic rationality of residents who dwelled again in their former village after the eruption of Mount Merapi in 2010 and refused to be relocated by theExpand

TLDR
A sustained effort is needed to identify places at risk and take steps to apply science before the events occur, to mitigate the effects through improved forecasting and warning, together with more community preparedness and resilience. Expand
