What we are learning from active volcanoes? #EmergencyManagement

Summer 2021 is over and we are back to share what we are learning outdoors. Just today a volcano erupted in La Palma, Canary Islands. We are following the news, videos, and photos to see what we are learning from volcanoes.

Let’s see how Geographic Information Systems, geospatial mapping, and geological data are helping local citizens, companies, and governments in being prepared for possible volcano eruptions. How to be prepared for emergencies analyzing data and mapping.

In Summer 2019, we crossed Atlantic Ocean in a Transatlantic Cruise that stopped in La Palma. We took a tout to explore one of the volcanoes.
