International Volcanic Health Hazard Network

University of Bristol

This international organization collects and disseminates geologic and medical data to evaluate and predict volcanic health hazards. The site provides an index of members working in the fields of volcanology, epidemiology, toxicology, public health and physical chemistry with links to their expertise in the areas of ash, gas, and aerosol characterization, water quality, air quality, exposure and risk assessment, and more. The site also provides information about upcoming meetings, news, and publications.
