Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

An international conference entitled "Volcanoes and Society: Environment, Health and Hazards” will be held in September in Greece.

The conference will be focused on the following:

  • Multidisciplinary monitoring volcanic environments in the vicinity of cities and highly touristic areas
  • The ability to recognize the hazards and their impact on people
  • Emergency management by civil protection authorities
  • Community education
  • Case studies
  • Risk mitigation to reduce the impacts of volcanism and its effects on society will be discussed

The Cities and Volcanoes Conference will provide a link between the volcanology community and emergency managers. The main objective is to serve as a conduit for the exchange of ideas and experience among people living and working in ‘cities on volcanoes’, and promote multi-disciplinary applied research, involving the collaboration of physical and social scientists and city officials.

The sessions of the meeting will focus on strategies and best practices being used and adopted by the volcanology experts in managing and distributing data. From eruptive style transitions and patterns of cyclicity in volcanic activity to urban planning and the use of geothermal energy, the meeting seeks to develop tools for improving safety and increasing the resilience of societies near volcanoes.

This Special Issue will gather scientific papers presented in the session dedicated to geothermal energy and its relation to volcanism. Geothermal energy is a renewable energy source (RES) with a low environmental impact, low greenhouse gas emissions, and feasible technology providing power over time regardless of the weather conditions. This session provides the opportunity to introduce exploitation updates, breakthroughs, and innovation techniques under the perspective of geothermal energy.
