This thematic series focuses on volcanic fragility and vulnerability functions as used in quantitative risk assessments. Such functions link the severity of a hazard to consequences on people, the built environment, primary industries, the economy, and/or society. This is rapidly developing and growing area in applied volcanology and this thematic series aims to collate and showcase applications of these functions in volcanology. Topics of interest include:
- Qualitative or quantitative fragility and vulnerability functions for one or multiple volcanic hazards
- Application of volcanic fragility and/or vulnerability functions to research questions
- Case studies of applications of volcanic fragility and/or vulnerability functions in practice
- Use of volcanic fragility and/or vulnerability functions as an educational or outreach tool.
