Dear CCVG members

Considering this quite difficult situation by COVID-19, the local organizing committee decided with advice of the CCVG leaders to postpone the CCVG workshop, originally scheduled from 29th May to 5th June, 2020. The new date is not yet fixed but is likely in the same period next year (late May-early June 2021), and will be announced through the CCVG ML.

We hope that all of you are fine and we can meet at the workshop next year.

Yours sincerely

On behalf of Commission on the Chemistry of Volcanic Gases (CCVG) of the International Association of Volcanology and Chemistry of the Earth’s Interior (IAVCEI), we are delighted to invite the international geochemical community working on volcanic gases to participate the 14th CCVG Workshop in Hokkaido, Japan, from 29 May to 5 June 2020.

Main aims of the workshop are to share and discuss recent developments in observation techniques, results, and interpretations of volcanic gas studies. Three core activities of the workshop will be composition and flux measurements using direct sampling and remote sensing techniques inactive vents, plume, and soil emissions. The workshop will include two days of scientific presentations and discussions followed by three days of field observations. Measurements will be carried out at Usu, Tarumae, and Tokachi volcanoes.

Pre-workshop observations, mainly devoted to plume measurements using remote sensing techniques, will be offered as an option and will take place at Asama volcano in Central Japan from 26 to 29 May 2020. The excursion includes one day of field work at the volcano and one spare day in case of bad weather conditions.

INFO: New schedule will be announced later.
