Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

When and where might a volcano erupt? How big will the eruption be? What will happen at surface after eruption? These are some of the most important questions that scientists investigating volcanic deformation try to address. A variety of monitoring techniques, ranging from seismology to geodetic methods, have been used around active volcanoes worldwide to collect data that provide warnings of volcano unrest, ultimately helping forecast volcanic eruptions. Furthermore, recent advances in remote sensing techniques and modeling of volcano magma plumbing have opened up new opportunities to understand spatial and temporal patterns of magma migration at volcanoes. Finally, analogue and numerical modelling give us valuable insights into internal and surficial deformation. This Special Issue aims to collect contributions from studies of volcano deformation processes to understand pre-, during and post-eruption volcano behavior. A broad perspective that spans from divergent boundaries to subduction zone and hotspot magmatism is considered.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2300 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
