    I don't know for sure, but I would think it would decrease and volcanos are so unpredictable.  Like tornadoes, they scare me to death.  Grew up in CA, so I can handle an earthquake but volcanoes, NO!

    We are sure we won;t visit with a volcano erupting !! or if they announced an earthquake , flood or fire !
    I assume nearly everyone feels the same way so I would say tourism would come to a standstill not just decrease !

    hmmm... there are many types of tourists--two general categories are those who travel for business and those who travel for pleasure. For sure, if there is a volcanic eruption, particularly a big one, then those who travel for pleasure would definitely decrease. However, those who travel for business might increase—you might get an increase in tourists who would go there to study or cover the eruption i.e. media people, scientists, etc.

    That's about what I thought. Myself I was thinking that I would love to go and see an erupting volcano. To be able to witness one of the planets most spectacular events would be mind blowing.

    Kilauea is constantly erupting.  Hawaii has shield volcanoes that are not like the ones in continental areas.  Our volcanoes overflow with lava that slowly pours down the side.  In other words, it doesn't explode.  Tons of tourists come to Hawaii to see the lava up-close.  I think that tourism isn't affected by whether or not the volcano is currently erupting, because it always is.
