Dear colleagues

We invite abstract submissions for the volcano seismology technical session at the Seismology of the Americas SSA- LACSC Joint Meeting. This session is entitled: "Interaction between observations and models in seismo-volcanic studies". We hope this session will be an interesting place for sharing observations of volcanic activity ranging from small monitoring seismic networks to high resolution multi-parametric approaches and modelling efforts.

This meeting will be held in Miami, Florida, from May 14 to May 17, 2018.

Submission deadline is January 24, 2018. Please joint us and submit at

Interaction Between Observations and Models in Seismo-volcanic Studies

Seismo-volcanic studies demand a deep understanding of volcanic systems. Such a study requires one to determine the internal structure of volcanic edifices to illuminate the configuration of the plumbing-feeding system, the nature and role of the fluids that fill internal cracks and cavities of complex geometries, the properties of seismic waves that cross the volcanic edifice, the role of tectonic stresses and faults and many other intriguing aspects of these complex systems. Numerous seismic instruments have been deployed on active volcanoes in recent decades either in a permanent role for volcano surveillance or for temporary campaigns. We extend this invitation to discuss recent contributions in the fields of modelling, based on a foundation of observations of volcanic activity ranging from simple seismic networks to high resolution multi-parametric approaches. We expect to have an exciting interactive session between seismologists and the personnel of volcanic observatories from Latin America, USA and elsewhere.
