Call for Papers


Call for Papers for “Stress, strain and mass changes at volcanoes"

Submission acceptance begins 1 August 2013

Guest Editors: Nicolas Fournier and Yosuke Aoki

A major goal of current volcanological research is the identification of reliable precursors to the onset of unrest, or to changes in an ongoing unrest episode. The main objective of this special section is to highlight and integrate a wide range of observations and modelling of phenomena that may be linked to temporal changes in stress, strain and mass changes at varying timescales at active volcanoes. These include - but are not limited to - ground deformation approaches (e.g., GPS, InSAR), studies of variations in gravity and magnetic fields, analysis of changes in seismic wave speeds, earthquake fault and slip orientation, and seismic anisotropy analyses. Quantitative combinations of such techniques can yield unprecedented insights into magma migration through the edifice, volcano-tectonic interactions or hydrothermal unrest. Ultimately, they may not only improve our understanding of the processes controlling or accompanying volcanic unrest, but also guide the development of effective volcano monitoring strategies.

Manuscripts are to be submitted through the AGU's Geophysical Electronic Manuscript Submissions System (GEMS) Web site for JGR-Solid Earth. For additional information, please email Pamela Calliham at pcalliham@agu.org.

Call for Papers for “Volcanism and the Atmosphere”

Submission acceptance begins 1 August 2012

Guest Editor: Alan Robock
Rutgers University

Volcanic eruptions affect the atmosphere by emitting particles and gases, which can affect aviation in the short term and climate in the long term.  Papers in this special section will discuss volcanic processes related to the atmospheric emissions; effects of volcanism on the atmosphere; impacts on climate, aviation, and ozone depletion; remote sensing of both ash and sulfate clouds; ice core and tree ring records of past volcanism and climate change caused by volcanism; the lifetime and impact of volcanic aerosol clouds; and volcanic hazards in the atmosphere.
