CVL would like to draw your attention to the upcoming MAAR8 Conference to be held ib Petropavlovsk-Kamtchatsky in late August 2020.
The Conference proposes a “Maar Lake session” where our work can be presented to a broader volcanological community.
Needless to say that MAAR8 includes exciting field trips, pre-, intra- and post-conference.
We hope to meet you in Kamchatka next summer.

Fall Meeting: Different perspectives and approaches to study volcanic lakes
Pantelleria Island, Sicily, 23-28 September 2019
The aim of the Fall Meeting is to experience a common scientific activity at the shoreline of the Specchio di Venere Lake at Pantelleria Island (southern Italy), the “Black Pearl” of the Mediterranean. The participants, students as well as young and senior researchers, will be encouraged to promote discussions on the main themes concerning the methodological approaches that can be used to investigate volcanic lakes under a multidisciplinary umbrella. In situ measurements of physical-chemical parameters and collection of samples for lab analysis will be carried out at the lake. The meeting is addressed to: Geochemists, Limnologists, Biologists, Volcanologists etc.
Registration deadline: 1 June 2019
Abstract submission deadline: 1 August 2019
During the business meeting of the CVL10-New Zealand Workshop (March 2019, Taupo) the new Co-Leaders were unanimously elected by the CVL Community present in New Zealand. After nine years, Dmitri Rouwet has stepped back as CVL-Leader (now webmaster) and has been replaced by Jennifer Lewicki (USGS-Menlo Park, CA) and Corentin Caudron (Université de Savoie, France).
Takeshi Ohba (Tokai University, Japan), former CVL-Secretary (2010-2013), left the Steering Committee and proposed Akihiko Terada (Kusatsu-Shirane Volcano Observatory, TIT, Japan) to replace him. Bertram Boehrer decided to leave the Steering Committee. We’d like to thank Takeshi-san and Bertram for their proactive work and dedication to CVL for many years.
Other newcomers in the CVL-Steering Committee are the young researchers Céline Mandon (Yachay Tech University, Urcuqui, Ecuador) and Maarten de Moor (OVSICORI, Costa Rica). Welcome Céline, Maarten and Akihiko!
The fully updated CVL-Steering Committee is presented here.
The SCIENTIFIC PROGRAM of the upcoming CVL10-New Zealand Workshop is available HERE
Thank you all for your exciting contributions. See you soon at the shores of Lake Taupo.

FINAL CHANCE TO SUBMIT YOUR ABSTRACT (DEADLINE 1 MARCH)
V12 – Geochemistry and Geophysics of Active Crater Lakes
Convener: Joop Varekamp (USA)
Co-Conveners: Corentin Caudron (Singapore), Dmitri Rouwet (Italy)
Active crater lakes provide the opportunity to watch inside magmatic-hydrothermal systems. The proto-type setting of “wet volcanoes” makes crater lakes prone to phreatic eruptions. Multidisciplinary approaches, by combining geophysical and geochemical measurements, and numerical and probabilistic modelling, have recently proven to be promising means to possibly reveal precursory signals of phreatic and phreatomagmatic eruptions. Hence, this section seeks contributions on how to measure and monitor crater lakes in relation with the activity of the underlying volcanoes.

P44. Volcanic lakes: multi-methodological and multi-disciplinary approaches for the characterization of the geosphere-biosphere interactions
Conveners: Dmitri Rouwet (INGV), Stefano Fazi (IRSA CNR), Jacopo Cabassi (UNIFI)
Corresponding e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
In this session, we welcome contributions focusing on peculiar approaches and methods of investigation of volcanic lakes from the geochemical, biological and limnological perspective. Studied lakes may be volcanic lakes from little maars to giant calderas, heated and acidic lakes, Nyos-type lakes (from the Lake Nyos gas disaster in Cameroon in 1986, when a limnic eruption occurred releasing huge amounts of CO2), bio-activity lakes (prone to the development of CO2(CH4)-rich gas reservoirs at depth mediated by bacterial activity), as well as lakes simulating the characteristics of a volcanic lake such as anthropic gas-rich lakes, sinkholes, etc. The aim is to encourage the expertise exchange among scientists in the study of microcosms such as limnic systems of volcanic environments, especially favouring the discussion and the development of new multidisciplinary and methodological research approaches, to shed light on the interactions occurring between geosphere and biosphere.
