Description based on print version record.
Summary:Reviews new technologies for remote sensing in research on volcanos, discussing real-time analysis of volcanic eruptions by detection of thermal anomalies, and issues related to data dissemination on the Internet. Looks at research on measuring volcanic plumes and gases by ultraviolet/infrared imaging and FTIR techniques, methods for identifying eruption plumes by satellite, and applying satellite data to volcanology issues. Some material is derived from the fall 1997 American Geophysical Union meeting, held in San Francisco, CA, while other chapters reflect ideas developed since then. Mouginis-Mark is affiliated with the University of Hawaii. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
