IASPEI/IAVCEI Joint Commission on Volcano Seismology
Mission Statement

The IASPEI/IAVCEI Joint Commission on Volcano Seismology was Founded at the XXI General Assembly of the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG) in Boulder, Colorado, July 2-14, 1995, as a Joint Commission of theInternational Association of Seismology and Physics of the Earth's Interior (IASPEI, #BB1344) and the International Association of Volcanolgy and Chemistry of the Earth's Interior (IAVCEI, #BB1369).


The fundamental aim of the commission is to promote volcano seismology as a tool to gain a better understanding of the dynamics of volcanoes and improve our ability to accurately predict their behaviour. The goals of the Commission are fivefold:

1. To facilitate collaborations among scientists and institutions investigating volcanic processes and structures.

2. To facilitate the transfer of knowledge, tools and training between scientists and volcano observatories, especially in developing countries.

3. To promote the use of state-of-the-art seismic equipment, such as broadband sensors and high dynamic range data loggers, in routine volcanic monitoring and seismic experiments.

4.To promote conferences, seminars and high-level education aimed at familiarising researchers with modern theoretical and experimental seismic methods used in the interpretation of volcanic processes and structures.

5. To promote funding from international organisations that could help defray travel and related expenses for the activities listed above.
