- Remote Sensing and
The Remote Sensing within the Volcanology group interacts with the Remote Sensing group.
We are entertwined with the Department of Geology; we work closely with the Division of Geological & Geophysical Surveys and we are part of the Alaska Volcano Observatory (AVO) consortium.
"The long term payoff is in education and international connections as much as science. We try to give students the maximum possible opportunity to experience different and challenging physical environments and different styles of doing science. By placing an emphasis on exchange of information and personnel in the North Pacific, we hope to re-establish direct connections that were made impossible by conditions during the last half of the 20th century and which were, when they existed, essentially re-routed the long way around the globe. This is an exciting place to do volcanology because there is a strong aspect of exploration and discovery, because there is a high level of volcanic activity, and because we are at a historic moment of reconnection."
