About the Group
IAVCEI - International Network for VOLcanology Collaboration (INVOLC)
This public group is intended to be a forum for scientists working in a resource-constrained context. The establishment of the group is the first step following on from events at IAVCEI 2017 (Portland, Oregon) which included an initial meeting of scientists with an interest in working in volcanology in low and middle income countries (LMICs). This meeting included discussion of themes and challenges of undertaking volcanic work in LMICs and set out a series of actions and steps towards establishment of the formal network (under IAVCEI).
Topics for the group include networking, sharing of resources that are targeted for use in such resource-constrained environments or that can readily be used by those in a LMIC context, sharing of experiences, and development of strategies for how the community can support and promote engagement by scientists with limited resources.
We invite your participation with the hope of generating a centralised location to encourage community engagement for scientists working in LMICs and those who are working to support the use of volcano science in this context.
