Major ongoing projects coordinated by the Center for Geohazards Studies include:

Vhub – An NSF supported, UB managed platform for online modeling, data and resource sharing, and collaboration related to volcanology and volcanic hazards.  See

Geohazards Field Station – Building an infrastructure for a user facility for large-scale experimental studies of processes associated with geological hazards, such as volcanic eruptions and mass flows.

Persistent Volcanic Crises Resilience in the Face of Prolonged and Uncertain Risk (Hazard SEES) – Coordinating NSF-funded project linking volcanology, social science, and statistics to better understand long-term volcanic hazards and to improve integration of science with stakeholders.  Involves University of Hawaii, UC Berkeley, Duke University, Eastern Tennessee State University, and Marquette University, in collaboration with the US Geological Survey volcano observatories.
