Estimating Mass Eruption Rates in Explosive Eruptions

Estimating mass eruption rates in exposive eruptions Reykjavík, Iceland, 3-5 May 2016 Organiser: Magnús T. Gudmundsson, Augusto Neri, Sara Barsotti, Tobias Dürig A three-day MeMoVolc workshop was hold in Reykjavík, Iceland on the topic of Mass Eruption Rates in explosive eruptions. A group of experts in the various measurement techniques as well as numerical and analogue plume models analysed the strengths and weaknesses of current MER estimation methods. The mass eruption rate (MER) is without doubt the most important single parameter in controlling the dynamics, hazard and impact of expl...

Anticipating volcanic eruptions, Pisa 2015

Anticipating volcanic eruptions: developing multidisciplinary tools to track the source, volume and duration of magma movement from the mantle to the surface Pisa, Italy, 4-6 February 2015 Organisers: M. Pompilio (INGV Pisa, Italy), S. Chakraborty (Bochum, Germany), M. Pichavant (Orléans, France), T. Druitt (Clermont-Ferrand, France). Contact. M. Pompilio (pompilio@pi.ingv.it) Magma input in the deep supply system is the early signal of a possible reactivation of the whole volcanic plumbing system. Understanding how magma is transferred from depth is pivotal to recognising long to mid ter...

From magma ascent to ash generation, Pisa 2014

Pisa workshop
From magma ascent to ash generation: Investigating volcanic conduit processes by integration of experiments, numerical modelling and observation Pisa, Italy, 25-27 October 2014 Organisers: M. Polacci and M. de’ Michieli Vitturi (INGV, Pisa, Italy).  Contact Margherita Polacci (polacci@pi.ingv.it) Volcanic conduits are the vehicle through which magma travels from its storage region to the surface. Understanding better volcanic conduits and related processes is of paramount importance for improving volcanic hazard and eruption prediction. The workshop addressed this topic, by first revi...

Labazuy (Clermont-Ferrand, France) and T. De Groeve (European Commission Joint Research Centre).  Contact Andy Harris (a.harris@opgc.univ-bpclermont.fr) Thermal remote sensing has developed to such an extent that hot spot detection routines are now common place, and can be used for forward modeling of lava flow inundation.  This workshop gathered European experts from the remote sensing, modeling and crisis mana...

Volcanotectonics, Oslo 2013

Workshop on magma emplacement and volcano-tectonics University of Oslo, 4-6 February 2013 Organized by O. Galland (U. Oslo), S. Burchardt (U. Uppsala) and V. Troll (U. Uppsala) Contact: Olivier Galland (olivier.galland@fys.uio.no) The physics that govern magma emplacement in the Earth’s crust have been studied through a wide range of methods and approaches, which have so far been poorly linked and coordinated. We organized a workshop to (1) coordinate the European expertise and disseminate the state-of-the-art for methods dedicated to studying volcano-tectonic and magma emplacement process...
