The Final GEOWARN Product Early Warning System and Emergency Plan > GEOWARN Emergency Planning and Mitigation

GEOWARN Emergency Planning and Mitigation

The inability to have access to instant on-site visualization and quantification is currently a major issue in decision-making, emergency planning, evacuation, and rescue management, in the case of volcanic warning levels orange (hazard warning, eruption likely) and red (alert, eruption under way).

This important need has been addressed by GEOWARN and can now be easily achieved within the GEOWARN system by visualization and comparison of the pre-eruptive situation with simulations of the various most likely eruption scenarios.




Several methodologies are applied in a completely new way to achieve the necessary results.
