Presenter: Dr. Diana Roman, Carnegie Institute of Washington -
Department of Terrestrial Magnetism

Summary: Magmatic processes generate a wide range of seismological
phenomena, and a dramatic increase in seismicity is often one of the
earliest observable precursors to a volcanic eruption. With the spread
of permanent monitoring networks on volcanoes in recent decades, it has
become evident, however, that many episodes of volcano-seismic unrest do
not culminate in eruptions, complicating efforts to understand the
processes driving seismic activity in volcanic settings. This
presentation will focus on the unique challenges of conducting
seismology research on volcanoes, and will highlight several examples of
volcano-seismic unrest at 'quiescent' volcanoes in Alaska, Montserrat,
and Nicaragua.
