From field data to volcanic hazard assessment: the case of Mt. Vesuvius and Campi Flegrei caldera

AIMS: The School is aimed at discussing the contribution of field-based volcanological data for hazard assessment. Lectures and field work will be focused on the Neapolitan volcanoes case studies and particularly to illustrate the path that takes from field work, to definition of scenarios, to numerical modeling, to mapping of relevant hazards and related impact.

In the field short presentations will be addressed to solicit discussion on the importance of field data collection for hazard assessment at a central volcano or at a large caldera.
