International Monogenetic Conference 2024

International Monogenetic Conference 2024

The 1st IMC is a multidisciplinary conference on monogenetic volcanism, covering a wide spectrum of topics following the tradition of the International Maar Conferences (2000-2018). These, among others, include physical volcanology, stratigraphy, field geology, geochemistry, petrology, geophysics, modelling, along with...

Memorandum of Understanding

About CMV and IAVCEI

International Association of Volcanology and Chemistry of the Earth’s Interior was founded in 1919, originally as the International Association of Volcanology (IAV).

IAVCEI focuses on research of volcanology and mitigation of volcanic disasters. Scientists also participate in IAVCEI research in closely related disciplines, such as igneous geochemistry and petrology, geochronology, volcanogenic mineral deposits, and the physics of the generation and ascent of magmas in the upper mantle and crust.

The IAVCEI Commission on Monogenetic Volcanism (CMV) main goal is to provide a forum for researchers to define and understand the phenomenon of small volume magmatic systems and their surface expression as volcano fields. The CMV aim is to take leading role to facilitate, coordinate and focus research and research outputs in regard to monogenetic volcanism and to assist to researchers to develop a refined and unified model of this type of volcanism.

The term monogenetic as applied to volcanic systems carries with it the concept of eruptions of batches of magma within short timescales. Monogenetic volcanism is commonly expressed as clusters of individual volcanoes forming fields of small cones which are a consequence of dispersed plumbing systems feeding discrete batches of magma to the Earth’s surface. Beyond this relatively simple concept there is a wide range of temporal, spatial and compositional variables.
