International Volcanic Field School in Russia

Over the month of August, I had the pleasure of participating in the 2018 International Volcanology Field School, Kamchatka session and the following 10th Biennial Workshop on Japan-Kamchatka-Alaska Subduction Processes (JKASP-2018). Both events took place in Kamchatka, Russia at a field camp for the field school and the city of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky for the conference. The whole trip was a great opportunity to see some amazing volcanoes and witness international collaboration of scientists all working from remote areas of Russia, North America, and Japan.
