The VolRes initiative aims to prepare a research plan for the next major volcanic eruption.
The SSiRC activity has started a new initiative called VolRes "Volcano Response Plan after the next major eruption" to prepare a plan for the next major volcanic eruption. This plan aims to highlight the science questions behind the chemical and climate impacts of large volcanic eruptions to define measurement and modelling strategies which will augment our knowledge and can be used to forecast and mitigate their impacts on Earth’s climate. The plan should facilitate the coordination between observational and modelling groups throughout the world. The group have started to gather a diverse group of model and observational scientists who would be interested in participating and in putting together this paper.
