Volcano Deformation Session, EGU 2012
From: Giuseppe Puglisi <giuseppe.puglisi@xxxxxxxxxx>

Dear Colleague,

we would like to encourage you to contribute with a presentation to the session on Volcanoes: Tectonics, Deformation and Geodesy session (GMPV4.2/TS4.9) at the EGU Meeting, 22-27 April 2012, to be held in Vienna, Austria  (for details:  http://meetings.copernicus.org/egu2012).

This session embraces studies in Structural Geology, Tectonics, Volcanology and Petrology.
A description of the session is provided below.

Deadline for receipt of abstracts is 17 January 2012.

The conveners are Valerio Acocella (University Roma Tre, Italy), Agust Gudmundsson (Royal Holloway London, England), Giuseppe Puglisi (INGV Catania, Italy), Tom Walter (GFZ Potsdam, Germany) and Sigurjon Jonsson (Kaust, Thuwai, Saudi Arabia).

Please pass this information on to colleagues and students working in this field.
We apologize for any multiple posting and look forward to meet you in Vienna.

Thank you.
Kind regards,

Valerio Acocella, Agust Gudmundsson, Giuseppe Puglisi, Tom Walter, Sigur Jonsson

Session information
The session “Volcanoes: Tectonics, Deformation and Geodesy” deals with the documentation and modelling of the tectonic, deformative and geodetic features of any type of volcanic area, on Earth and in the Solar System.
The focus is on advancing our understanding on any type of deformation of active and non-active volcanoes, on the associated behaviours, and the implications for hazards. We welcome contributions based on results from fieldwork, remote-sensing studies, geophysical and geodetic measurements, and analytical, analogue, and numerical simulations.
Studies may be focused at the regional scale, investigating the tectonic setting responsible for and controlling volcanic activity, both along
divergent and convergent plate boundaries, as well in intraplate settings.
At a more local scale, all types of surface deformation in volcanic areas are of interest, such as elastic inflation and deflation, or anelastic
processes, including caldera and flank collapses.
Geodetic studies aim at detecting detailed and precise volcano deformation data, obtained mainly through GPS and InSAR, as well as at their modelling to imagine sources.
