AGU Chapman Conference
Distributed Volcanism and Distributed Volcanic Hazards
Flagstaff AZ, USA
19-23 September 2022
The AGU has recently announced that abstracts have re-opened for the AGU Chapman Conference on Distributed Volcanism and Distributed Volcanic Hazards, taking place 19-23 September, 2022 in Flagstaff, Arizona. The new abstract submission deadline is 28 June 2022.
The conference remains a three-day opportunity for attendees to discuss, develop and test conceptual models of distributed volcanism.
About the Chapman
Most subaerial volcanoes are found in widely distributed volcanic fields made up of tens to hundreds of vents. Eruption styles and potential impacts also vary. Explosive activity ranges from mild Strombolian and ash-producing eruptions that produce localized tephra fall to more explosive eruptions that result in widespread ashfall. Effusive eruptions can produce far-reaching lava flows, and non-eruptive open-vent outgassing degrades downwind air quality. Many distributed fields on Earth are poorly instrumented and their eruptive histories are not well understood, which limits our ability to forecast the potential location, timing and magnitude of future eruptions.
The purpose of this Chapman is to bring together scientists to discuss, develop, and test conceptual models of distributed volcanism. Focus by the scientific community is especially important now because of continuing growth of cities, communities, and critical infrastructure within sparsely monitored volcanic fields.
Who should attend?
The AGU invites participants from all disciplines to join in for three days of conference presentations and discussions at the USGS Astrogeology Science Center in Flagstaff, Arizona. They especially encourage participants from emergency management, geologic mapping, geochronology, physical volcanology, geomorphology, seismology, geodesy, geochemistry, exploration geophysics, hazards assessment, science communication, and related fields to attend.
