Collaborative Risk Assessment for Volcanoes and Earthquakes (CRAVE)
The project aims to develop a methodology for calculating volcanic eruption and earthquake risk within a common computational framework and to pilot the approach with several developing countries in the Pacific Rim.
This project includes several partners including the British Geological Survey, the Earth Observatory of Singapore (EOS), the University of Edinburgh, the Volcano Disaster Assistance Program (VDAP) of the United States Geological Survey (USGS), and key organizations from the region including the Colombian Geological Survey, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) and Badan Geologi (Indonesia).
CRAVE will run for 18 months to develop a common framework for the assessment of the impact from earthquakes and volcanoes, with an application to a few locations in Indonesia, Philippines and Colombia. Specifically, CRAVE aims to inform geological policies or procedures to increase the preparedness for geological events and develop the capacity of various sectors to reduce the impact of geological events.
