Vesuvius by Flavio Dobran

Book Description

VESUVIUS 2000 is an interdisciplinary project aimed at producing a safe and prosperous habitat for the people living around Vesuvius. To produce this environment requires an effective collaboration between the experts and the public, whereby the danger from the volcano is used to reorganize the territory and thus produce new opportunities for the people surrounding the volcano. As an all inclusive physico-mathematical-computer model of the volcano, the Global Volcanic Simulator is a key tool for determining the effects of different eruption scenarios and thus for urban planning of the territory. Unlike the evacuation plans which tend to manage emergencies, "VESUVIUS 2000" aims at preparing the Vesuvius area to confront future eruptions with minimal socio-economic and cultural consequences. It addresses volcanic risk mitigation in densely populated area surrounding Vesuvius. It provides education about volcanos; and displays physical modeling of eruption processes and integration of models.
