Abstract

UNESCO's GARS-Asia project focuses on the application of remote sensing techniques for volcanic hazard analysis and mapping in the Philippines. The Bulusan volcano region in the Bicol district is one of the pilot areas in which a volcanic hazard mapping program is undertaken. Landsat TM and spaceborne SAR data is being used for general geologic and geomorphologic mapping of the area. A geographical information system (GIS) is used to create a reference database, with which the final hazard analysis will be carried out.
