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.
