Proceedings in Volcanology
The concept of IAVCEI publishing
the proceedings of volcanological conferences arose after the Bulletin
of Volcanology took on its new format in 1986. There was a perceived
need for an IAVCEI volcanological series that could publish thematic
conference proceedings and therefore leave the Bulletin of Volcanology
free to continue its regular publication schedule without delays caused
by the production of 'special issues'. Four volumes of the IAVCEI
Proceedings in Volcanology have appeared to date: one is entitled
'Volcanic hazards' (edited by J.H. Latter), another `Lava flows and
domes' (edited by J.H. Fink), and the third `Volcanic seismology'
(edited by P. Gasparini, R. Scarpa, and K. Aki). A fourth volume on
carbonatites (editors K. Bell and J. Keller) was released in January
The IAVCEI Executive Committee in 1992 discussed the future of the series. It decided that restricting the contents of the series to conference proceedings was too limiting, and this series has now been replaced by IAVCEI Special Publications and IAVCEI Methods in Volcanology.
