IAG/IAVCEI Joint Commission on Volcano Geodesy

The Commission on Volcano Geodesy fosters the cooperation among scientists working on ground deformation and geodesy studies on volcanoes. The cooperation will bring several advantages in terms of science improvements and consequent social repercussions. Volcano geodesy is an essential tool for monitoring and risk assessment during volcanic unrest. Geodesy, in fact, represents one of the most reliable signals for understanding the ongoing dynamics of a volcano and for imaging the magma feeding system and flank movements; then, it is usually considered also one of the most reliable precursors for forecasting volcanic eruptions.create a global network of cooperation among scientists working on ground deformation and geodesy studies on volcanoes.
