About this Research Topic
Great strides have been made in the geophysical imaging of volcanic systems on a wide range of spatial scales in recent years. Progress has included data and instrumentation advances, the application of new techniques, and improvement in computational capabilities that hold, for instance, promise for eventual full-wavefield seismic inversions at the scale of volcano edifices.
The goal of this Research Topic is to highlight and illustrate advanced geophysical methods that can be used for characterizing the internal structure and the dynamics of volcanoes toward understanding ongoing and potential eruptions, and improve time-dependent estimation of related hazards.
We welcome contributions based on geophysical observations that contribute to the understanding of volcanic structure and processes. We especially welcome papers on studies that:
• describe novel techniques and case studies
• integrate several methods to build multiphysics models
• show potential for systematic application on active volcanoes
• succeed in urban settings
Keywords: geophysical imaging, geophysical observations, volcanic structure, volcano dynamics, novel techniques
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
