Active crater lake session, IUGG General Assembly, Montréal

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.
