WOVOdat

Anticipating volcanic eruption relies on having quick access to standardized historical monitoring data and statistical tools for forecasting. WOVOdat contains now about 40% of worldwide unrest data, covering 105 volcanoes with > 910 unrest episodes. We have created a robust online-interface to efficiently explore and use the database. We have started to develop statistical analysis to estimate the likelihood that an unrest will lead to eruption using probabilistic event tree analysis. Some of the tools have already been adopted by observatories. In the coming years we will explore the use of volcano analogues, continue with data population with a focus in Latin America, and establish WOVOdat as a platform and reference tool for observatories during volcanic crises.
