The Atlas of Merapi Volcano is the first atlas focusing entirely on an active volcano. It does not focus exclusively on the geology, or the volcanic hazards and the monitoring of the volcano. Yet it covers a much wider spectrum in order to assess the actual volcanic risk. Therefore, it encompasses original sections on resources, vulnerabilities, and capacities in addition to the more conventional sections dedicated to Earth Science. The maps of this atlas are mainly based on field data compiled during a 5-years long field campaign (2009 -2013) in the framework of two scientific projects: the MIA VITA project financed by the European Commission, and the SEDIMER Project funded by the AXA Research Fund (SEDIMER).
