[ Volcano ] Say Hello to CalVO!

Say Hello to CalVO!
From: Margaret Mangan <>

On February 9, 2012 USGS Volcano Hazards Program issued a press release
announcing the establishment of the USGS California Volcano Observatory
(CalVO), which replaces the Long Valley Observatory (LVO).  Like LVO,
CalVO operates out of existing facilities within the USGS Menlo Park (CA)
campus with Margaret (Maggie) Mangan as the Scientist-in-Charge. The URL
for the press release is

This event also coincides with the release of a new CalVO website and the
redirect and removal of the old LVO website.  The new website address is:

Establishing CalVO is the most visible part of a general restructuring of
the responsibilities of the five observatories operated by the US
Geological Survey. The California Volcano Observatory watches over
volcanoes in California and Nevada; the Cascades Volcano Observatory (CVO)
is responsible  for volcanoes in Washington, Oregon and Idaho; the Alaska
Volcano Observatory (AVO) monitors volcanoes in Alaska and the
Commonwealth of the Northern Marianas; the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory
(HVO) monitors activity in Hawaii; and the Yellowstone Volcano Observatory
(YVO) is responsible for volcanoes in Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, Utah,
Arizona, and New Mexico.
