Effects of silver nanoparticles to algae and microbial communities
An international expert community of volcano observatories, academic scientists, volcanic ash advisory centres and representatives of aviation regulators, engine manufacturers and airlines met at the Geneva headquarters of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) on 18-20 November 2013 to discuss progress on ash dispersal forecasting and produce a roadmap for the future. The workshop was sponsored by the University of Geneva, the WMO, the British Geological Survey, the UK Met Office, the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics and the International Association of Volcanology and Chemistry of the Earth’s Interior and identified priorities to maximise national and international cooperation and advancement of scientific research. These include the need for systematic ground and space-borne monitoring, increased integration of observations with forecast models and further opportunities to share knowledge and experience across the community. Several recent eruptions (such as Eyjafjallajokull 2010, Iceland, and Cordon Caulle 2011, Chile) are a stark reminder of the need to plan for, and be able to respond effectively to, future eruptions to minimize disruption to air transport and to protect human safety.

This award honours Marie Besse for her service in favour of the national education.
We also congratulate our former post-doc Blair Schoene (2007-2009), and former Ph. D. student Fidel Costa (1995-1999) for their recent awards. Blair Shoene now assistant professor at Princeton University, for obtaining the 2013 F.W. Clarke Award of the Geochemical Society. The F. W. Clarke Award is given to an early-career scientist for a single outstanding contribution to geochemistry or cosmochemistry, published either as a single paper or a series of papers on a single topic. Fidel Costa, Principal Investigator at the Earth Observatory of Singapore, has been awarded the Wager Medal 2013, IAVCEI. The medal to a scientist up to 15 years after Ph.D acquisition, who has made outstanding contributions to volcanology.
