This book is a visual learning experience as recorded on satellite images of volcanic eruptions and a manual describing how it is used for operational satellite monitoring. The atlas shows examples of the largest eruptions worldwide. The book fills a huge gap in the science of volcano remote sensing. A CD-ROM is included containing all the images and an associated website which will be regularly updated, showing results from new and current eruptions.

Editorial Reviews

"This 363-page book is well written, self-contained and provides all up to date information for anyone interested in the volcanic activity over the North Pacific, and a must have for everyone interested in volcanology and remote sensing. It is full of colored, high-quality images that help the reader to conceive the presented material which also makes the book more appealing." (Alexandra Karamitrou, Pure and Applied Geophysics, Vol. 174, 2017)
