Abstract: This activity is developed within the EXPLORIS (Explosive Eruption Risk and Decision Support) international project, which is supported by the European Union and composed by 9 Research Units of 5 different Countries. One of the goal of the project was to develop tools capable to evaluate a reasonable estimation of the cumulative damage impact scenario consequent to a volcanic eruption of assigned intensity. A first attempt to the problem is here presented focusing a possible path and the complexity to model several aspects concurring to the result.
