Speaker: Prof Richard Robertson, UWI

Abstract: Life in the multi-hazard volcanic landscape in the Eastern Caribbean can be challenging; but through ongoing collaboration between monitoring scientists, government agencies and at-risk communities, crises can be effectively managed. In this talk Richie will share examples and lessons learned during his work in the region directed at reducing risk from volcanic activity. This includes, developing innovative, cost-effective monitoring solutions, engaging with communities, advancing knowledge of volcanic systems through partnerships with research institutions, and embracing new technologies
