The objective of the school is to provide participants with an interdisciplinary knowledge on the methods of monitoring and surveillance of an active volcano, and on the methods to estimate its current hazard. The school aims at Early Stage Researchers and PhD students, who will be introduced to "state of the art" at one of the most monitored volcanoes in the world. The surveillance system includes broad-band seismic stations, ground-based SAR, high-speed visible light and infrared cameras, infrasonic microphones, GPS system, strain meters, gas plume FTIR, etc.
The students will be trained on the use in the field of such instruments, and on the processing and analysis of the retrieved signals. The summit eruptive activity will be observed, measured, and sampled. A specific exercise will be conducted in order to extract through formalized procedures a group opinion on the current level of hazard at the volcano.

The 2013 edition of Prof. Dingwell's one week short course "Melts, Glasses, Magmas" will tentatively take place from 8 through 12 July 2013 in Munich (Germany), and provides insights into the nature of the liquid state using examples from the silicate systems that play a central role in Earth and Material Sciences.
IIASA’s annual 3-month Young Scientists Summer Program (YSSP) offers research opportunities to talented young researchers whose interests correspond with IIASA’s ongoing research on issues of global environmental, economic and social change. From June through August accepted participants work within the Institute’s Research Programs under the guidance of IIASA scientific staff.
