This commentary discusses several recent incidents involving intersecting human and physical geographies. It examines several volcanic crises that demonstrate the multiple uncertainties inherent in volcanic risk analysis, and the impact of these events on volcanology as a discipline. Its intertwined human and physical epistemologies are discussed. The commentary argues that the geography of risk is an important organising concept in a more detailed and layered assessment of the risk from geophysical hazards such as earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.
