The EVE project facilitates cooperation between scientists and civil protection agencies to improve response to volcanic disasters.
Its main objective is to improve prevention and preparedness in civil protection when volcanic incidents occur. To achieve this, it will develop the European volcano EWS to anticipate new volcanic eruptions, contribute to the knowledge on past eruptive behaviour and analyse real-time monitoring. This EWS will be based on the application of the specific e-tools developed for long- and short-term hazard assessment and a careful revision of well-monitored and studied past volcanic eruptions in European volcanoes. EVE will offer an easy and rapid way to forecast in real time how, when and where a new eruption may occur, thus allowing predictions of the most probable eruption scenarios and their potential impacts.
EVE will facilitate scientific and technical cooperation at regional and international scales by defining common actions and protocols to forecast volcanic scenarios and their potential impacts in real time during a volcanic crisis.
The project involves the participation of six European leading research groups in the fields of pre-eruptive processes, volcanic hazard assessment, volcano monitoring and risk management and has the support of their corresponding civil protection agencies and volcano observatories.
