Expert Group on Antarctic Volcanism (AntVolc)
Volcanoes are widespread, at environmentally strategic locations across the entire continent; several still active
So volcanic studies are crucial for a holistic understanding of the palaeoenvironmental, palaeoclimatic & geological evolution (past and future) of the Antarctic Continent.
To address these issues the Expert Group on Antarctic Volcanism (AntVolc) was formed in 2014 after approval at the 2014 SCAR Delegates Meeting in Auckland, New Zealand.
