Volcanic monitoring methods are under continuous development, and observations using methods both old and new reveal novel insights into volcanic processes. Different volcanoes pose different hazards and require a range of strategies in order to adequately perform hazard assessments. The aim of this session is to bring together a multidisciplinary audience to learn about recent innovations in monitoring techniques and to present observations derived from monitoring of volcanic activity that increase our understanding of volcanic processes, in a range of volcanic environments. We welcome contributions from all disciplines applied to volcano monitoring, from in-situ methods such as seismic networks, geodetic networks and gas monitoring, as well as ground, air and space-based remote sensing methods, such as DOAS, thermal hotspot and SAR. The session will provide a snapshot of the current and novel approaches used in volcano monitoring, as well as
highlighting areas where further interdisciplinary integration may be fruitful. We therefore encourage submission of papers that describe techniques and observations in a manner that is easily understandable to a broad, multi-disciplinary audience.
