In commemoration of the IUGG centennial in 2019 IAVCEI has been awarded a grant to facilitate a workshop to be held next year supporting international cooperation in geosciences.
The focus of the workshop is fostering developed-developing country partnerships for the advancement of global volcano science, including the development of best-practice engagement protocols.
These activities are driven under the auspices of the recently established IAVCEI - Developing Nations Network (DNN) which has been established to support scientists working in a resource or technology constrained context.
Dear IAVCEI members,
below are the files of the 2nd circular of the "VII Workshop on Collapse Calderas"
Inaugural call for nominations for the IAVCEI
Volcano Surveillance and Crisis Response Award
All IAVCEI members are invited to submit nominations for the IAVCEI Volcano Surveillance and Crisis Response Award, which will be presented at the Cities on Volcanoes meeting in Naples in September 2018.
Nominations may be made on behalf of an individual, individuals, or an observatory team, that has/have demonstrated exemplary service to the development of observatory-based volcanology and/or response to volcanic crises.
Toba Caldera, Sumatra, Indonesia
From 21st to 27th September 2018
The workshop, like previous meetings, will be a venue to discuss many diﬀerent aspects of calderas, their physical setting, associated magmatic processes, eruption dynamics, impacts of eruptions, hazards associated with caldera volcanism and their mitigation. Taking advantage of Toba’s unique record, resurgence will be a major theme. The workshop will consists of 3 full days of presentations and discussion, and 2.5 full days of ﬁeld-based discussions.
