COMMISSION ON THE CHEMISTRY OF VOLCANIC GASES
COMMISSION ON THE CHEMISTRY OF VOLCANIC GASES (CCVG) – IAVCEI
11TH GAS WORKSHOP, KAMCHATKA, RUSSIA
1-10 SEPTEMBER 2011
On behalf of the hosting geochemical community from the Institute of Volcanology and Seismology and Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS) we are happy to invite the international geochemical scientific group working on volcanic gases to participate in the 2011 Gas Field Workshop to be held in Kamchatka, Russia, in August-September 2011.
The main topics of the workshop are the intercomparison of results of the simultaneous geochemical sampling, remote sensing methods and discussions of the current theories and observations related to volcano degassing.

Abstract dead-line & Early registration February 2011
The Commission on the Chemistry of Volcanic Gases (CCVG) is a sub-commission of IAVCEI, that was formed in the early 1980's to bring together volcanologists and geochemists interested in the study of volcanic gas compositions.
The CCVG include scientists interested in all aspects of volcanic and magmatic volatiles:
* Ground- and satellite based remote sensing of volatile emissions
* Aerosol studies
* Analyses of volatiles in melt inclusions of erupted lavas and tephras
* Determination of diffuse degassing at volcanoes
* Physical modeling of magma degassing
* Traditional sampling of volcanic gases using Giggenbach bottles
By broadening the theme of the commission we have brought together a variety of scientists who apply different but complementary techniques to understand magma degassing and volatile emissions from volcanoes. We feel that the complexity of magma degassing, the role of volatiles in eruptive processes and the potential effects of volcanic emissions on the Earth's atmosphere call for an interdisciplinary approach.
