Workshop Title

"Geophysical and geodetic techniques for monitoring and analysis of submarine eruptions"

Modern volcano monitoring aims at a comprehensive understanding of volcanological phenomena and multidisciplinarity has become a common approach.
Although being a seismology working group, we welcome contributions which concern seismic and other data as well.



Declaration of interest, together with title of a possible talk, should be sent
via email to Alicia Garcia,

Please note that El Hierro is a small island with only small hotels and restaurants, hence,
due to logistical limitations, no more than 50 participants can be accepted.

Final registration deadline is July 15th, 2012
