FROM THE FOREWARD
In recognition of the importance of volcanism to diverse park issues, the Geologic Resources Division of the National Park Service and the Volcano Hazards Program of the USGS convened a workshop to bring together USGS and NPS scientists, managers, and interpreters. The purpose of the gathering was to lay the groundwork for improving scientific input to park management (operations, resource management, interpretation, and planning) and for facilitating volcano research and hazard monitoring in parks.
Lassen Volcanic National Park served as an excellent host for the workshop which was held in nearby Redding, California. Lassen Volcanic National Park was established by Congress in 1916, inspired by the 1914-1917 eruption of Lassen Peak. A field trip to the park included many stops near striking volcanic features and deposits so that participants could learn about the natural history of the area and develop an appreciation for the scope of the potential volcanic hazards and emergency-response issues that scientists and park managers would face during a future period of volcanic unrest and eruption in the park.
