Welcome to the home page for the Hawaiian Volcanoes Field Course 2004 organized by a group of volcanologists and petrologists from the University of California campus in Davis and
San Diego. On this website you can find practical information about the field trip itself, which courses are prerequisite, what to bring to Hawaii, where to register, etc. This site will be maintained to also report the findings of the participants in the form of daily reports and image
galleries, and many other data products.

Participants will learn the fundamental aspects of physical and chemical volcanology. This course has a major field study component and subjects which are introduced in lectures will be reinforced and expanded upon through exercises in the field. Field work may
involve hiking as much as 15 miles per day and participants must be able to keep up with the rest of the group. For more course info see the Links panel on the right hand side.
Morning lecture/discussions and afternoon field exercises. Evenings generally free,
but an all day trip or special function may be scheduled for Saturday. There will only be one full day off during the two week program. Field trips are mandatory.
Participants will stay at the Kilauea Military Camp located at the north edge of Kilauea crater in Hawaii
