On behalf of Commission on the Chemistry of Volcanic Gases (CCVG) of the International Association of Volcanology and Chemistry of the Earth’s Interior (IAVCEI), we are delighted to invite the international geochemical community working on volcanic gases to participate in the 14th CCVG Workshop in Hokkaido, Japan, from 29 May to 5 June 2020.

Main aims of the workshop are to share and discuss recent developments in observation techniques, results and interpretations of volcanic gas studies. The core activities of the workshop will be composition and flux measurements using direct sampling and remote sensing techniques in active vents, plume, and soil emissions.

The workshop will include two days of scientific presentations and discussions followed by three days of field observations. Measurements will be carried out at Usu, Tarumae and Tokachi volcanoes.

Pre-workshop observations, mainly devoted to plume measurements using remote sensing techniques, will be offered as an option and will take place at Asama volcano in Central Japan from 26 to 29 May 2020. The excursion includes one day of field work at the volcano and one spare day in case of bad weather conditions.

Registration and Abstract submission will open in November 2019, along with release of the Third Circular to provide detailed information on costs and eventual grant options, as well as deadlines. Allinformation will be made available through the website:
