The purpose of the NSF-funded Community Network for Volcanic Eruption Response (CONVERSE) Research Coordination Network (RCN) is to enable, organize, and focus the collaboration of US academic and government researchers, along with foreign entities, involved in volcano science. As part of CONVERSE we are holding discipline-focused workshops where researchers can gather and work towards achieving CONVERSE's goals. A volcano geodesy workshop will be hosted in conjunction with the inaugural meeting of the IACVEI geodesy commission in October 2019. The major meeting goals are to:

  1. Identify the frontiers of volcano geodetic knowledge and capabilities
  2. Explore key volcano science questions that can be answered with geodetic tools
  3. Explore methods to integrate geodetic data with other sensor data, networks and how to orchestrate rapid eruption responses.
  4. Identify and explore new technologies that will further volcano geodesy (e.g., MEMS gravity, single frequency receivers, ...)
  5. Identify longer term geographic working groups
This meeting will be the prequel a longer, dedicated, IAVCEI-Geodesy 2020 workshop that will focus on the training early career scientists and making progress on the above items.

Need-based or partial funding is available for a limited number of applicants. If interested in please fill out the registration form. We anticipate a maximum meeting attendance of ~40 participants.
