A new infographic based on theOxford Handbooks in Physical Sciences article "Assessing Volcanic Hazard: A Review" is now available on the OUPblog:
"Volcanoes are incredibly complex geological systems. They are capable of generating many dangerous effects in the form of lava flows, fallout, and lahars – as well as associated hazards such as seismic shocks, tsunamis, or landslides. About 500 million people currently live in regions of the world directly subject to volcanic risk, and it is estimated that about 250,000 persons died during the past two centuries as a direct consequence of volcanic eruptions. Almost 26,000 of these fatalities occurred in the past two decades, above all in developing countries."
