AVO geochemical database now available
Posted: October 13, 2014
Whole-rock geochemical data for Quaternary Alaska volcanic rocks is now available here
. This searchable database contains published whole-rock geochemical data for Quaternary volcanic rocks in Alaska, linked to geologist, publication, source volcano (where possible), and other sample and analysis metadata. The website interface allows users to query the database and return datasets as fully-documented .html
or downloadable .csv
Rather than a static publication, this database is intended to be updated as new volcano-related geochemical data is published. At present, the database contains analyses for more than 5,000 unique samples, making it a valuable research tool for geoscientists with interests ranging from volcano-specific processes to whole-arc data synthesis.
Please contact Cheryl Cameron or Seth Snedigar if you have further questions or comments about this dataset or the web interface.

AVO Scientists Discuss Cook Inlet Volcanoes on Frontier Scientists TV Series
Posted: October 06, 2014
When: Monday, October 27, 8:00 pm
Available on: 360 North, GCI Cable, DirecTV, and Dish Network.
Cook Inlet Volcanoes Featured on the Frontier Scientists TV Series in October: Alaska Volcano Observatory scientists will talk about how they track and monitor volcanic activity of the Cook Inlet volcanoes and the installation of the first ever real-time monitoring equipment (seismometers, infrasound sensors, web camera) to track activity at Cleveland Volcano. Frontier Scientists
connects Alaska field scientists with those curious about Arctic discoveries by sharing first-person accounts and real time insights from leading archeologists, biologists, volcanologists, climate change specialists and other scientists.
