EUROVOLC will initiate integrating activities that will build resilient, sustained connections between the distributed and fragmented volcanological entities, foster collaboration and encourage harmonization and standardisation of data, research methodologies and products, and will develop standards for estimation and management of volcanic hazard and its communication to authorities, the public and media.

Theme 2 of EUROVOLC is centered on Volcano-Atmospheric Interaction. It’s main topics are:

  • Multidisciplinary assimilation of data for volcanic ash transport models and source-term parametrization.
  • Interaction of volcanic products with atmosphere; physical chemical aspects in the near field of a volcano, far-field evolution.


  • Networking atmospheric gas and aerosol observations
  • Consolidation of geochemical gas monitoring across VOs
  • Connecting the volcanological community with Volcanic Ash Advisory Centres
  • Volcano pre-eruptive detection schemes
