The 3rd workshop on Volcano Geology is the ideal prosecution of the first two, held in Madeira (Portugal) on July 2014 and in Prague on July 2015, hosted by IUGG meeting.
It aims to be a forum to present and discuss the current topics of the geological studies in modern Volcanology, and to examine the first steps of the just established IAVCEI commission on Volcano Geology. This workshop will be particularly focused on discussing the state of the art of geological fieldwork and mapping in volcanic areas, which are the baseline for understanding the volcano behaviour and its associated hazards.
We plan some keynote lectures and a poster session to promote a wide discussion on main topics of Volcano Geology, combined with fieldtrips on wonderful outcrops of Mt Etna (including Valle del Bove depression and NE Rift) and Vulcano, Lipari and Stromboli volcanoes (Aeolian Islands) comprising the ascent to the Stromboli active craters. The website of the IAVCEI Commission on "Volcano Geology" is under construction.
Right now we publish the 1st circular with the details of the III Workshop on Volcano Geology, to be held from July 3rd to 10th, In Sicily (Italy).
The Cities and Volcanoes Commission of IAVCEI aims to provide a link between the volcanology community and emergency managers, to serve as a conduit for exchange of ideas and experience among people living and working in ‘cities on volcanoes’, and promote multi-disciplinary applied research, involving the collaboration of physical and social scientists and city officials.
Dear IAVCEI member,
As you probably know from the last issue of IAVCEI NEWS, we will reintroduce a payment fee for IAVCEI membership starting on January 1, 2016.
IAVCEI has increased its activities in recent years, financing grants for researchers from developing counties, international workshops and schools, and providing financial contributions to COV meetings and IAVCEI scientific assemblies. This activity requires income that cannot be guaranteed by voluntary contributions from members and from IUGG annual payments to IAVCEI. Thus, we find a need for membership fees to provide a regular annual income, similar to other international scientific associations.
