Community Assessments

The Community White Paper “Extreme Geohazards: Reducing the Disaster Risk and Increasing Resilience” identifies the risk of a global disaster associate with major volcanic eruption as an underrated risk and provides recommendation how to address and reduce this risk. The project was managed by Tiwah with support from the European Science Foundation.

The “GGOS 2020 Book” book “Global Geodetic Observing System: Meeting the Requirements of a Global Society on a Changing Planet in 2020”, edited by Hans-Peter Plag and Michael Pearlman, which was published by Springer in 2009, gives an excellent overview of what geodesy can do for science, society, and you. It also sets the frame for the development of the global geodetic infrastructure and what actions the global geodetic community needs to take in order to fully exploit the potential of geodesy in a modern society. See the On-line version.
