The IAVCEI 5th Volcanic Geology Workshop consists of an on-campus workshop (one day) with presentations and discussions and field trip (six days) to the Taupo Volcanic Zone active and young volcanic terrains.
Building on the learnings of previous workshops, the Fifth Volcanic Geology Workshop will provide field-based experience for the participants to see the volcanic facies architecture of active but long-lived intermediate composite to silicic caldera volcanoes in an atypical arc setting along the Taupo Volcanic Zone in New Zealand.
Participants will visit iconic locations from where basic concepts in volcanology emerged such as ignimbrite depositions, volcaniclastic sedimentary respond to major volcanic eruptions, ring plain concepts of stratovolcanoes, volcano collapses and their landscape modifying effects, small volume monogenetic volcanism associated with central volcanoes and application of tephrastratigraphy and chronology in development of mapping units.

The single day workshop will be arranged into 3 major themes:
1) Volcanic Geology of Ancient [pre-Pliocene] Terrains
2) Volcanic Geology of Modern (post-Pliocene] and active settings and
3) Volcanic Geology and Geological Mapping
Each of these themes will be introduced by an invited 30 minutes plenary talks [invitation to deliver these talks will be communicated directly with the potential presenters]
Each of the themes can allow 12 presentations that will be selected by the Scientific Advisory Board. The selected presenters will have a 5 minutes, 2 slide Power Point option to introduce their work to the audience.
Abstract should be submitted by using the available template - you can attach that electronically below. Abstracts should be maximum two pages.
The submitted abstracts will be included in the Geoscience Society of New Zealand Miscellaneous Publications.
Please email Karoly Nemeth directly to inquire if a place is available.
