The andesitic dome-building eruption of the Soufriere Hills Volcano wreaked havoc at the small Caribbean island of Montserrat. approximately half this 'emerald Isle' was once rendered barren and uninhabitable, nearly two-thirds of the unique inhabitants needed to depart, and 19 lives have been misplaced, all as a right away results of the volcanic task. This Memoir provides result of tracking and linked study protecting virtually five-years, from the onset of the eruption in July 1995 until eventually November 1999. Many various phenomena concerning the ascent and extrusion of andesitic magma were studied at shut quarters. The eruption has approved special documentation and higher figuring out of procedures and linked signs that result in lava dome instability and to explosive decompression, and of the actual behaviours and features of linked pyroclastic currents. It has additionally supplied the chance for improvement of alternative equipment in risks review and zonation, together with formal elictations of overseas medical services and statistical remedies of eruption-scenario types. The eruption and its outcomes represent an enormous case of volcanic predicament administration and of the interactions among scientists, experts and population on a small island, with major classes for the longer term. This quantity includes 30 papers, lots of which handle the chronology, dynamics, items and linked dangers of the eruption. it's also papers in particular at the linked geophysics and geochemistry. 4 introductory papers supply overviews of the eruption chronology and results, of the medical effects, of the evolution, employer, function and actions of the Montserrat Volcano Observatory, and of the volcanic evolution of Montserrat via time. a wide photographic list of the 1995-199 eruptive interval is incorporated. viewers / Readership: The overseas volcanological neighborhood. Universities and earth technological know-how libraries. Volcano observatories.
