Geodynamical Studies on Deception Island: DECVOL and GEODEC Projects

  • Chapter

Abstract

Deception Island (63° S, 60° W) is situated in the South Shetland Islands, and it is the main active volcano in the Bransfield Strait, with recent eruptions in 1842, 1967, 1969 and 1970. Its volcanic and seismic activity has been monitored from 1986 to study the geodynamic activity on the island. In this paper we present the objectives and some results obtained in DECVOL project, a crossdisciplinary study which was planned to evaluate the volcanic status of the island after the crisis occurred during the 1998/1999 campaign, as well as the goals and activities which have been carried out in the framework of GEODEC project, a multidisciplinary project to continue with the studies on the island.
