A Global Assessment of Active Volcanism, Volcanic Hazards, and Volcanic Inputs to the Atmosphere from the Earth Observing System. Providing information about the project activities of the NASA Earth Observing System (EOS) Interdisciplinary Science (IDS) Investigation Volcanology Team. EOS is a series of polar-orbiting remote-sensing satellites planned for launch starting in 1998 and spanning a period of at least 15 years. EOS is a major component of NASA’s Mission to Planet Earth.

    GVM is an international network that aims to create a sustainable, accessible information platform on volcanic hazard and risk. GVM will provide systematic evidence, data and analysis of volcanic hazards and risk on global, regional and local scales, and will develop the capability to anticipate future volcanism and its consequences. GVM has initiated as a partnership of 11 research institutes and organisations in the USA, Japan, Singapore, Italy, New Zealand and the UK, as well as three commercial partners from the insurance sector. GVM involves already well-established and widely known volcanological programs and networks, including the Global Volcano Program of the Smithsonian Institution, VHub, WOVO, WOVOdat and VOGRIPA (volcanic hazards database). GVM has been endorsed by IAVCEI. GVM complements other international natural hazards partnerships such as Global Earthquake Model. We invite volcanologists worldwide to browse the site and find out more about what GVM is about and how you might become involved.
