Drones don’t fear lava: Remote and ground archaeological survey during the 2021 volcano eruption in La Palma, Canary Islands

“The study of how eruptive events affected past societies and their environment has been a recurrent field of research that has gained relevant insights towards reducing present-day geohazard risks and vulnerability [1, 2, 3]. Archaeological volcanology also has close ties with the so-called “disaster archaeology” [4, 5], which aims at improving our engagement and risk management strategies in response…
