Summary

The U.S. Geological Survey, California Volcano Observatory (CalVO) in collaboration with the State of California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services and the California Geological Survey, are working to understand the State’s exposure to volcanic hazards by integrating volcanic hazard information with geospatial data on at-risk populations, infrastructure, and resources. These data are from the geospatial analysis of the assets against volcano hazard zones (near vent, lava flow, lahar, flood, and ash fall) for California volcanoes ranked as Moderate, High, or Very High Threat in the US Geological Survey's 2005 report entitled “Volcanic Threat and Monitoring Capabilities in the United States” available on-line at http://pubs.usgs.gov/of/2005/1164/.
