Summary
Abstract: Global Volcano Proportional Economic Loss Risk Deciles is a 2.5 minute grid of volcano hazard

economic loss as proportions of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) per analytical unit. Estimates of GDP at risk are based on regional

economic loss rates derived from historical records of the Emergency Events Database (EM-DAT). Loss rates are weighted by the
