Welcome to the home page of the IAVCEI/IACS Joint Commission on Volcano-Ice Interactions. The Commission is charged with promoting research and interest in the complex interactions of magmas and ice in all its forms (snow, firn, ice and meltwater), on Earth and other planets. In general such interactions are referred to as glaciovolcanism. This website is intended to be the first port of call for anybody with an interest in the subject. It should also serve as a rapid means of discovering what glaciovolcanic meetings are currently planned, and as a way of contacting most of the active workers. In addition, to foster the exchange of ideas internationally, we have created a glaciovolcanic image database, since a good clear image of a feature is worth a thousand words. The database is accessible from this site and all the images are freely available for use in (non-commercial) public talks and papers. We invite everyone to contribute their favourite educational images to help constantly improve and expand the database.
