The 2nd annual Volc-OR (Volcanology Students of Oregon) conference was held at the University of Oregon, April 11-12, 2019. Over 60 students from 4 regional universities and colleges attended and nearly half presented their research in oral or poster sessions. Laboratory tours of the facilities at UO, science communication workshops, and panel discussions rounded out the 2019 edition of Volc-OR, which culminated in a keynote by Mike Poland, Scientist-in-Charge of the Yellowstone Volcano Observatory.

From the Volc-OR website:
Volc-OR aims to bring together graduate and undergraduate students from Portland State University, Oregon State University, the University of Oregon, and other regional universities whose research relates broadly to volcanology (e.g. physical volcanology, igneous petrology, economic geology, volcano geomorphology, geophysics, etc.). As a more informal complement to major national scientific meetings, we hope that this small student-centric and student-led meeting will provide focused and relevant learning experiences and discussion, and foster new connections, collaborations, and friendships.
Importantly, we feel that we can all be taking better advantage of our shared interests and close proximity with one another to bolster research ideas and access to analytical facilities. Through meetings and general volcanophile camaraderie, the goal of Volc-OR is to build these bridges to meet your neighboring students and faculty!
We regretfully announce the passing of our colleague and Professor Emeritus, Alexander “Mac” McBirney. Please see the links below that include a tribute from Dana Johnston, the University of Oregon news release, and his official obituary.
Our own Professor Doug Toomey’s work with the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network on the earthquake early warning system is featured in the news! See the full Register Guard article here.
