Focussing primarily on the 2010 eruption, this resource first asks why people choose to live in volcanic regions? The opportunities for geo-thermal power, tourism and agriculture are considered. It then explores the impacts of the Eyjafjallajokull eruption and responses to it including the role of: emergency planning; early warning systems and better volcanic ash forecasting. A fantastic case study for HIC/LIC geo-hazard comparison when used with the Montserrat or Haiti titles. CONTENTS Chapter 1: Introduction Chapter 2: Why live near volcanoes? Chapter 3: Impacts on Iceland Chapter 4: Reducing impacts – disaster preparedness Chapter 5: Building resilience against the volcano threat Chapter 6: Challenges and opportunities Each resource includes a fantastic bank of teaching resources and student activities, designed and written by Bob Digby educational consultant, GCSE principal examiner and author of numerous geography textbooks.
