-The Krafft’s collection of documentation contains 800 reels of film and 300,000 slides.

-In addition to their observations, the Kraffts also took measurements, gas readings, and sam[;es often feet away from pyroclastic and lava flows, documenting how the eruptions affected the local ecosystem.

-The Kraffts documented the formation of new volcanoes in addition to the effects of acid rain and ash clouds.

-The Kraftts’ documentation allowed them to work closely with governments to create safety procedures. One of the Kraffts’ final projects was “Understanding Volcanic Hazards and Reducing Volcanic Risks,” in which they produced informational films and educational materials on the science of volcanic eruptions and the need of evacuations. This video was screened in time to warn and evacuate Phillippine residents of the eruptions at Mount Pinatubo that occurred less than two weeks later, saving thousands of lives.

-The Katia and Maurice Krafft Award was established in 2018 and recognizes researchers who have developed and implemented innovative or inclusive methods for engaging with and communicating a geoscience topic or event with a diverse audience

-The Krafft Medal is awarded every 4 years at the IAVCEI Scientific Assembly to an individual who has made outstanding contributions to volcanology through service to the scientific community or to communities threatened by volcanic activity.
