Abstract

http://www.geo.mtu.edu/~raman/PASI2011

The Open Vent Volcanoes PASI in Costa Rica gathered 60 scientists from 13 countries to build scientific networking in the transdisciplinary field of volcanology in January 2011. The accelerating application of field measurements and remote sensing to geological hazards is facilitated by collaborations in earth's most hazardous regions; Pacific Latin America is subject to frequent eruptions, landslides, earthquakes and hurricanes and is near the US science community, but is nonetheless sparsely investigated. We aim to stimulate this kind of international effort by gathering the critical US science and Pacific Latin American counterpart groups.

This proposal funded participants from the US and from the Americas, to attend a workshop hosted at the University of Costa Rica for two weeks of lectures, computer laboratory and field experiences aimed at Remote Sensing for Mitigation of Natural Hazards in Latin America. We expect to use the event to further develop human and social science aspects of hazards research which have begun to emerge. In addition to developing special publications and web outreach of workshop products, we expect this event to 1) increase the number of scientists working on hazards research in universities, government agencies and non-governmental organizations in both the US and the Americas, and 2) foster communication among these institutions, and 3) build stronger collaborative relationships as a result of this workshop.

While the planned workshop includes fundamental aspects of remote sensing and digital image processing, the topics are presented in the context of new developments for studying volcanic processes and hazards. Goals of the workshop included: 1) increasing awareness of available data and instruments for collecting data, 2) increasing proficiency in acquiring and processing data, 3) increasing awareness of the availability of tools for processing remotely sensed data, and 4) enabling more effective and comprehensive archiving and sharing of data. The workshop curricula were designed in a manner to best serve the participants, while understanding the broad range of participants' technical background and institutional support, as well as equipment and funding at their disposal.
