Call for papers: Volcanoes: Science and Applications


Geoscience Letters welcomes submissions to the new thematic series 'Volcanoes: Science and Applications'.

The Asia Oceania region is home to over 700 volcanoes active during the past 10,000 years, and is host to the largest share of the world’s populations. Volcanic phenomena, the science of volcanology, and the impacts of volcanism on the natural and human environment are at the same time fascinating as they are of imminent societal relevance: Volcanic eruptions and their associated hazards affect over 10% of the world's population and interdisciplinary research is crucially important to improve hazard assessment and communication, monitoring, forecasting, and mitigation. This collection aims to cover contributions across multiple disciplines, and includes studies of volcanic activity from multiple scientific perspectives. 
This SC is inspired by the Special Session at AOGS 2018, “SS09 - Volcanoes: Nature, Influence, Impact”
