Portland, OR

Joint CONVERSE Volcano Geodesy & IAVCEI Volcano Geodesy Commission Workshop

We will hold a joint workshop of the CONVERSE Volcano Geodesy group & the IAVCEI Volcano Geodesy Commission prior to the 2019 SAGE/GAGE workshop in Portland October 7-8, 2019.

Location:Hilton Portland Downtown, 921 SW Sixth Avenue, Portland, Oregon
Dates:October 07-08, 2019
Organizers: Ronni Grapenthin, UAF;
Emily Montgomery-Brown, USGS
Michael Poland, USGS;
Alessandro Bonforte, INGV
Agenda:see below
Invited Speakers:Paul Segall, Ingrid Johanson, David Bekaert, plus others TBA
Registration:fill out this form (deadline for partial support is Sept. 9)

The purpose of the NSF-funded Community Network for Volcanic Eruption Response (CONVERSE) Research Coordination Network (RCN) is to enable, organize, and focus the collaboration of US academic and government researchers, along with foreign entities, involved in volcano science. As part of CONVERSE we are holding discipline-focused workshops where researchers can gather and work towards achieving CONVERSE's goals. A volcano geodesy workshop will be hosted in conjunction with the inaugural meeting of the IAVCEI geodesy commission in October 2019. The major meeting goals are to:

  1. Identify the frontiers of volcano geodetic knowledge and capabilities
  2. Explore key volcano science questions that can be answered with geodetic tools
  3. Explore methods to integrate geodetic data with other sensor data, networks and how to orchestrate rapid eruption responses.
  4. Identify and explore new technologies that will further volcano geodesy (e.g., MEMS gravity, single frequency receivers, ...)
  5. Identify longer term geographic working groups
This meeting will be the prequel a longer, dedicated, IAVCEI-Geodesy 2020 workshop that will focus on the training early career scientists and making progress on the above items.

Need-based or partial funding is available for a limited number of applicants. If interested in please fill out the registration form. We anticipate a maximum meeting attendance of ~40 participants.

Preliminary Agenda

Day 1 - 10/07 08:00-10:00Science Questions: What are the limits of Volcano Geodesy? Where are the Frontiers?

Invited Speaker: Paul Segall, Stanford University
  10:00-12:00Discussion of Research Problems: What are the big questions the next eruption could answer? Are there benefits to interfacing with other Volcanology disciplines? Which ones, and how to best do so?
  noon-13:00lunch on own
  13:00-15:00How to monitor precursory and eruptive activity? Protocols to manage precursory activity? How to deal with potential lack of pre-eruptive ground-based observations?

Invited Speaker: Jeff Freymueller, MSU
  15:00-17:00Discussion of protocols and engineering problems.
Day 2 - 10/08 08:00-10:00Strategies for observing and modeling large and complex deformation.

Invited Speaker: TBA
  10:00-12:00Big Data Volcano Geodesy

Invited Speaker: David Baekert, NASA-JPL
  12:00-13:00lunch on own
  13:00-15:00Discussion: How to get the best scientific value out of any (US) eruption? Available funding mechanisms, required permitting, resources for data accessibility / distribution?
  15:00-17:00Real-time/high-rate applications of GNSS to volcano monitoring w/ discussion.

Invited Speaker: Ingrid Johansson, USGS-HVO
