Warning against 'volcano tourism' risks

专家提醒人们重视火山旅游风险

When a volcano erupts, the obvious thing to do might be to run in the opposite direction. But this report warns about thousands of people who rush from around the world to try to get as close as possible.

当火山爆发时,人们的第一反应可能就是朝反方向跑。但这份报告警告说,有成千上万的人反而为了尽可能地接近火山而奔波于世界各地。

Amy Donovan, the Cambridge University geographer who has written the report, says that some people are unable to resist the elemental power of a volcano. They travelled to places such as Iceland for the thrill of being close to an eruption, often wanting to photograph themselves in these extreme settings.

来自剑桥大学的地理学家艾米·唐纳文撰写了这份报告,她说有些人无法抗拒火山的原始力量。他们为了体会临近火山喷发的刺激感而去冰岛等地旅游,往往是想要在这类极端的环境中自拍。

But they dangerously underestimate the risks such as being injured by flying rocks, the threat of toxic gas or getting cut off by lava flows. It's also proving difficult for the emergency services, who are putting their own lives at risk to rescue these thrill-seeking travellers.

但危险的是,他们低估了如被飞石砸伤、吸入有毒气体或被熔岩流阻断去路的风险。事实证明,火山观光还给紧急救援部门的工作人员带来了困难,因为他们需冒着生命危险去解救这些寻求刺激的游客。
