The 10th international workshop on the Japan- Kurile-Kamchatka-Aleutian volcanic arcs will be held August 20th -26th, 2018 in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, Russia.

The region is a part of the transitional zone between the Pacific Ocean and the continent of Asia, and is among the most volcanically and seismically active areas on Earth. It presents a variety of specific geodynamic settings including back arc rifting induced by oblique convergence, arc-arc and arc-continent collision, interaction of minor lithospheric plates and others. The interdisciplinary and international nature of the workshop brings together scientists to solve problems that cross unchanged through international borders.


SESSION THEMES

  • Recent or ongoing volcanic eruptions and recent major earthquakes;
  • Tectonic, volcanological, seismological, and marine studies in the ocean-continent transition zone;
  • Ground-, air-, and satellite-based techniques of monitoring of ongoing geologic processes;
  • Studies of Geothermal Systems


  • JKASP provides a unique opportunity for many scientists and students working in the Far Northern Pacific to meet, as well as an excellent introduction for those who wish to become involved in research in this exciting region. In 2018, the workshop starts immediately after the International Volcanological Field School that will be held at Mutnovsky volcano, so students of the school can participate in the 10th International Workshop.
