Summer School Lago Albano, Rome, Italy

Our IAVCEI Commission on Volcanic Lakes, the Società Geochimica Italiana and Geode are delighted to announce you the second Summer School on Volcanic Lakes at Lago Albano, Rome, Italy, 29 August – 2 September 2022.

We’re seeking students to share our multi-disciplinary approaches with, directly on the lake.

Download the First Circular above for details on this event.

Looking forward to meeting you at the shores of Lago Albano during the next summer.

AGU 2021 Session – Multidisciplinary perspectives on Volcanic Lakes

We welcome submissions to the AGU session Multidisciplinary perspectives on volcanic lakes to be held during the 2021 Fall Meeting, from 13th to 17th of December. As the meeting will be both in-person and virtual, we strongly welcome contributions from early-career scientists and scientists from low-income countries. The AGU online abstract submission is now open, and will close on Wednesday 4st of August at 23:59 EDT.  

Session Title: V014. Multidisciplinary perspectives on volcanic lakes  
Section: Volcanology, Geochemistry and Petrology
Session description:  
Volcanic lakes are spectacular features of our planet. They also are windows into magmatic-hydrothermal systems, ideal natural laboratories to study interactions between the lithosphere, hydrosphere and atmosphere in volcanic environments, as well as interactions between the geosphere and biosphere inside their water body. A multidisciplinary measurement and modeling approach incorporating scientific fields such as volcanology, geochemistry, geophysics, limnology, microbiology, hydrogeology and economic geology has developed over the years to better understand volcanic lake systems. Such an approach also aims to forecast and mitigate hazards associated with volcanic lakes, such as phreatic and limnic eruptions, acid seepage, and lahars.  

We therefore seek contributions related to studies of volcanic lakes from a broad range of perspectives, including:  

  1. Geochemical, geophysical and microbiological characteristics and monitoring of volcanic lakes
  2. Hazard forecast and mitigation
  3. Environmental impacts of hyperacidic crater lakes
  4. Limnology and hydrogeology of volcanic lakes
  5. Modeling studies of volcanic lake processes

We look forward to seeing you, either in-person in New Orleans or online from anywhere.
