Volcano activity report message

This (almost) daily post intends to follow up the activity changes of volcanoes all over the world.
This post is written by geologist Rodger Wilson who specializes in Volcano seismicity and Armand Vervaeck. Please feel free to tell us about new or changed activity if we haven't written about it. -

May 8, 2013

We are sad to announce that Rodger Wilson, your daily volcano report host, will have to end his daily contributions.

Making up his reports was a time consuming daily task, not only describing what he thought you to know as important, but also collecting the many images from the seismographs, webcam screenshots etc.

Unfortunately for us, and great for him, Rodger will take up some new professional activities which do not leave enough free time to make his daily reports. Just like all other contributors to this site, Rodger was contributing as a non-paid volunteer.  Such contributions can only continue if they can fit in an acceptable schedule which was not the case here.
Because of all this, he unfortunately had to end his daily Volcano Report contributions, at least for the time being.

Rodger will continue to answer your "volcano questions" when he finds the time to do it.

Rodger also promised to help us out with his expertise if a really outstanding eruption occurs or some seriously threatening premonitory activity is taking place.

We want to thank Rodger (also on behalf of his many daily readers), for his unique outstanding reports.

We would welcome of course a new geologist / volcanologist who wants to share his knowledge with our many readers. If you are the person wanting to establish such a collaboration, feel free to drop us a line.

Earthquake-Report.com will continue to report on volcano activity like we did before Rodger joined us. We will think about the best formula and will keep you updated about our decision.
