IEDA Data Rescue Mini-Award: Legacy Russian Volcanic and Hydrothermal Gas Data

Geochemical analyses of volcanic and hydrothermal gas samples from 20 publications have been translated and compiled by Tobias Fischer (DCO DECADE; University of New Mexico, USA), with expert Russian gas geochemist Yuri Taran (Universidad Autonoma de Mexico; pictured at right), Elena Kalacheva (IVS, Kamchatka) and Nicole Thomas (UNM). These data, which were previously inaccessible to the non-Russian speaking community, include analyses from several well-known volcanoes, such as Klyuchevskoi, Shiveluch, Bezymianny, Mutnovsky, Katmai, and Avachinski, as well as numerous remote volcanoes. The pioneering work of Russian gas geochemists Ivanov and Naboko, who published data on eruptions as early as the 1930's, is included in these datasets.
