Commission on explosive volcanism
About IAVCEI Commission on Explosive Volcanism
The primary aims of the Commission on Explosive Volcanism are
- to foster modern, process-oriented studies of pyroclastic rocks,
- to encourage communication between scientists from the various branches of research directed to such studies,
- to provide input into other areas such as volcanic hazards and atmospheric impacts, and
- to promote interest in explosive volcanism and its products. Research interests focus on the processes of explosive eruptions, volcano evolution, and magmatic influences on eruption dynamics.
