Copahue Volcano (Active Volcanoes of the World)

This booklet offers a complete description of the volcanological, petrological and geochemical positive factors of the Copahue volcano, positioned on the border among Argentina and Chile. clinical experiences are restricted for this volcanic procedure, because of its distant place and hard entry in wintry weather. even though, Copahue is among the so much lively volcanic platforms within the southern Andes. tracking the volcano's job is of utter significance, because it presents technique of life for the within reach village of an analogous identify, webhosting the world's highest-located hot-springs inn.

This book's target is to give the present tracking actions, and to explain destiny study courses which are deliberate to be able to mitigate volcanic dangers. unique consciousness is as a result dedicated to the social and business actions as regards to the volcano, corresponding to healthiness cures and geothermal strength exploitation.

In a different part, the Copahue volcano is gifted as a terrestrial sleek analog for early-Earth and Mars environments.

Structural data in combination with numerical modelling can provide fundamental information to forecast future volcanic activity and to assess volcanic hazard.
