Crisis response program

This is an “information support” effort mostly aimed at improving scientifically-informed journalism during volcanic crises.  It involves identifying a developing volcanic crisis that is likely to become newsworthy and in need of science support / outreach, and then granting open-access to any relevant papers held in the Bulletin of Volcanology archive.  This is supported by a timely press release, which is designed to pre-empt the need for information and is being developed in collaboration with the Smithsonian Institution’s Global Volcanism Program.
