Understanding Volcanic Hazards (English) 

Comprensión de Amenazas Volcánicas (Spanish) 

Vivre Sous la Menace des Volcans (French)

This 25-minute video features stunning images of seven types of volcanic hazards: ash falls, hot ash (pyroclastic) flows, mudflows, landslides, volcanic tsunamis, lava flows and volcanic gases. This program is intended to help prevent future deaths from volcanic eruptions by showing compelling images of destructive volcanic activity. The late Maurice Krafft produced this video for IAVCEI and UNESCO.

Reducing Volcanic Risk (English) 

Reduciendo el Riesgo Volcánico (Spanish) 

This 23-minute program is designed to prevent volcanic eruptions from becoming volcanic disasters using three steps: identifying hazardous areas, monitoring volcanoes, and developing and testing an emergency plan. Examples from around the world - Japan, Columbia, Papua New Guinea, the Philippines - are used to show how these steps are needed to save lives during volcanic emergencies.
