The Local Organizing Committee is happy to announce that the website and registration is open for the IAVCEI 5th Volcanic Geology Workshop – IAVCEI 5VGW that will be held at the Massey University in Palmerston North and Ohakune, New Zealand between 25 February – 4 March 2019.
The IAVCEI 5th Volcanic Geology Workshop consists of an on-campus workshop (one day) with presentations and discussions and field trip (six days) to the Taupo Volcanic Zone active and young volcanic terrains.
Building on the learnings of previous workshops, the Fifth Volcanic Geology Workshop will provide field-based experience for the participants to see the volcanic facies architecture of active but long-lived intermediate composite to silicic caldera volcanoes in an atypical arc setting along the Taupo Volcanic Zone in New Zealand.
Participants will visit iconic locations from where basic concepts in volcanology emerged such as ignimbrite depositions, volcaniclastic sedimentary respond to major volcanic eruptions, ring plain concepts of stratovolcanoes, volcano collapses and their landscape modifying effects, small volume monogenetic volcanism associated with central
volcanoes and application of tephrastratigraphy and chronology in development of mapping units.
The single day workshop will be arranged into 3 major themes:
1) Volcanic Geology of Ancient [pre-Pliocene] Terrains
2) Volcanic Geology of Modern (post-Pliocene] and active settings and
3) Volcanic Geology and Geological Mapping
Each of these themes will be introduced by an invited 30 minutes plenary talks [invitation to deliver these talks will be communicated directly with the potential presenters]. Each of the themes can allow 12 presentations that will be selected by the Scientific Advisory Board. The selected presenters will have a 5 minutes, 2 slide Power Point option to introduce their work to the audience that will be followed by round table discussions.
The 6 days long fieldtrip will take the participants to the Ruapehu volcano, Tongariro Volcanic Complex, Taupo caldera and Taranaki volcano.
For more information and registration please visit the IAVCEI 5VGW website
Please note that registration is open ONLY for IAVCEI members and the maximum number of registration is limited in 50, so please consider your participation and complete your registration as soon as possible.
