Cities on Volcanoes 10
Napoli, Italy September 2-7 2018

The Cities and Volcanoes Commission of IAVCEI aims to provide a linkage between the volcanology community and emergency managers, to serve as a conduit for exchange of ideas and experience between “volcano cities”, and to promote multi-disciplinary applied research, involving the collaboration of physical and social scientists and city officials. The Commission selected Napoli as the venue for the Cities on Volcanoes Conference in 2018.

13th CCVG Gas Workshop – Ecuador

The 13th CCVG Gas Workshop will be held in Ecuador from 24 September to 3 October. The program will include a 4-day scientific meeting focused on geochemistry of magmatic gases and fluxes from volcanoes, followed by a 5-day field excursion to allow participants to acquire plume measurements, diffuse soil flux measurements and direct fumarole and water samples from local volcanoes. Details of the scientific program and field campaign are outlined in the second circular:

Developments In Noble Gas Understanding and Expertise

Noble gas geochemists and cosmochemists are invited to a three day workshop in Nancy to pay a tribute to our friend and our colleague Pete Burnard by discussing technical and scientific aspects of new noble gas applications to terrestrial and extraterrestrial science. The workshop will be held at the Centre de Recherches Pétrographiques et Géochimiques (CRPG), Nancy, France, on 13th to 15th April 2016. The first two days will be devoted to scientific presentations while the last day will focus on the: (i) modeling of geological processes involving noble gases and (ii) technical aspects of noble gas spectrometry.  Abstract deadline is 1 February 2016 and registration deadline is 25 March 2016.
