Volcanic eruption forecast and timely warning is the most effective remedy to reduce the risks and minimize the
consequences of volcanic impact on the environment and the population activity. The system of the space monitoring
of catastrophic phenomena serves the purposes of the detection and recognition of eruption precursors, ongoing event
monitoring and eruption dynamic scenario development with the objective to estimate eruption scale and environmental
impact. Special attention is given to problem of danger of distribution the volcanic ash clouds.
Keywords: volcano, eruptions, monitoring, remote sensing, volcanic hazard, volcanic ash clouds
