The LaMEVE (Large Magnitude Explosive Eruptions) Database (Deadliest Volcano Eruptions)

  • The LaMEVE (Large Magnitude Explosive Volcanic Eruptions) database has been a large collaborative effort. Data contributions have come from the Smithsonian Institution’s Global Volcanism Program (both their online Holocene database and an unpublished Quaternary dataset), the Geological Survey of Japan ( Quaternary and Active Volcanoes of Japan databases), as well as from the published literature. A large number of people have been involved in compiling the data over a number of years, mostly at the University of Bristol, UK: Natalia Deligne, Natalie Ortiz, Laura Hobbs, Hayley Dunning, Sian Crosweller, Sarah Brown, Koji Kiyosugi (University of South Florida), Michael Hodge, Emily Bowyer, Lucy Harper, Jenny Pooley, Sam Mitchell and Alex Clarke. The database was designed by Martin Nayembil and Baneet Arora (British Geological Survey) and Sian Crosweller (University of Bristol), with the web design and development carried out by Jonathan Lowndes, Karen Kilpatrick, Diego Diaz Doce and Baneet Arora (British Geological Survey).
