  Information - IS74 - OS18/SM21 Submarine volcano observation and monitoring (co-organized by OS & SM; co-listed in GMPV)

Event Information
Monitoring and observation of onshore volcano activity has reached such a degree of knowledge that certain techniques now breach the gap from fundamental research to application in hazard situations. However, a large part of volcanic activity resides in submarine places not seldom close to the shore where it is hidden from traditional methodology but still can easily prove to be hazardous. For this reason, new methods have been and are being developed and implemented on various submarine volcanoes worldwide. They range from small-scale mapping and geochemical analysis of lava flows in order to understand explosivity and eruption histories, to observing hydrothermal fluid discharge into the water column and to modern hydroacoustic and seafloor seismological and tiltmetry methods.

With our open session on submarine volcano observation and monitoring we want to build a forum for researchers in this area to enable an exchange of ideas and experiences throughout this field and link researchers interested in volcano sites as diverse as mid-ocean ridges, individual seamounts and evolving islands.

The session is open to all contributions that are somehow related to offshore volcanoes, eruptions, their precursors and related hazards.
