Middle East Volcanoes
Entry ID: GEO_CORNELL_ME_VOLCANOES

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The dataset contains volcano locations in the Middle East. The principal
reasons for constructing this database are to help in the monitoring and
verification of the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty (CTBT) and to study the
complex tectonic and geologic problems of the region. This database will also
have an impact in natural hazard evaluation, particularly in uderstanding the
earthquake occurrences in the region and seismic risk assessment. The data set
can also be used in classrooms as an educational tool.
