18 Years of Risk and Resilience: a ‘Forensic’ Analysis of Soufriere Hills Volcano and its Impacts

Edited by: Prof Jenni Barclay, Dr Christopher Kilburn

These papers outline new analyses of the interactions between social and physical systems during a long-lived volcanic crisis (Soufriere Hills Volcano, Montserrat). We use a 'forensic' approach where evidence is gathered across the physical, social, political and cultural changes that occurred in response to the perturbations initiated by the volcanic crisis. This was done as part of the UK ERSC and NERC funded STREVA project.
