Parent Category: About the Commission Hits: 115

The initial stages of formation of this commission will involve the bringing together of a dynamic group of workers with interest and experience in related fields, the definition of a list of working goals and objectives, and putting into place a schedule of activities.

The following is a list of high-priority activities we envisage the commission to work on during the first 5 years, these will be discussed and refined during the initial year of the commission activities:

These guidelines would balance having some level of specificity but also be flexible enough for local implementation in different cultural, political, and scientific environments. The documents would provide a concise common starting place for workers embarking on these various topics which nucleate and focus discussions within the volcanology community and give IAVCEI a strong and practical tie to tools that would be used “on the ground.” Such an effort would also form a focused basis for linking in other related efforts such as the Tephra Working Group, and Model Benchmarking Group, etc.

The main objectives at these initial meetings will be to advertise the goals and objectives of this commission, and recruit long-term members, but also to ensure that relevant project outcomes feed into the wider commission products, where they can then be used to benefit a much wider community.
