Hi volcanophiles and all you interested blog followers! This week we have an announcement for the sixth LASI conference taking place in Malargüe, Argentina during 25-29 November 2019. LASI stands for “Laccoliths, sills and dykes: the physical geology of subvolcanic systems.” This year’s invited speakers are:
Alan Bischoff (University of Canterbury, New Zealand)
Janine Kavanagh (University of Liverpool, UK)
Nora Rubinstein (University of Buenos Aires, Argentina)
Freysteinn Sigmundsson (University of Reykjavik, Iceland)
Register now and hear their talks regarding seismic imaging, lab modeling, and field studies of volcanic plumbing systems. Additionally, there will be a wide variety of other topics given by many international scientists presenting in oral and poster sessions. In the evenings, socialize and discuss the day with your colleagues while enjoying delicious Argentinian food and drink in the town nestled in the foothills of the majestic Andes mountains!
An essential part of each LASI conference is its incredible guided field trip. When was the last time you stood at the same outcrop with specialists in volcanology, tectonics, structural geology, petrology, geochemistry, geochronology, geophysics, exploration geology and modelers? This year’s trip will be across the north Nequén Basin, south Mendoza province, where there are spectacular exposures of rhyolitic laccoliths and an andesite sill complex. Make sure to sign up while there are still spots left!
