Special Paper 498 contains 12 new scientific papers, assembled as part of an NSF-sponsored workshop in 2011. The work highlights study of persistently active volcanoes and their hazards, mostly in Central America. Such volcanoes are termed "open vents" by volcanologists, and they offer the chance to study active processes. Insight into how volcanoes work and how hazards might be mitigated are the goals of the work. Overall, the volume presents insight into hazards infrastructure collaborations and development for geoscientists and students.
  • Open-vent volcanism and related hazards: Overview
  • A 50 yr eruption of a basaltic composite cone: Pacaya, Guatemala
  • Crater lake evolution at Santa Ana Volcano (El Salvador) following the 2005 eruption
  • Continuous subsidence associated with the long-lasting eruption of Arenal Volcano (Costa Rica) observed by dry-tilt stations
  • A pilot GPS study of Santa Ana Volcano (Ilamatepec) and Coatepeque caldera, El Salvador
  • Gravity and geodesy of Concepción Volcano, Nicaragua
  • An analysis of the seismic activity of Popocatépetl Volcano, Mexico, associated with the eruptive period of December 2002 to February 2003: Looking for precursors
  • Temporal changes in eruptive behavior identified with coda wave interferometry and seismo-acoustic observations at Fuego Volcano, Guatemala
  • Insights into explosion dynamics and the production of ash at Stromboli from samples collected in real-time, October 2009
  • Large-volume Barriles and Caisán debris avalanche deposits from Volcán Barú, Panama
