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 qopen ventsq 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.METHODS Network Information and Measurements During mid-2008, we installed 12 GPS benchmarks on and around Santa Ana Volcano and Coatepeque caldera (Fig. ... either a Trimble 5700 or Trimble NetRS dual- frequency GPS receiver recording at 30 s intervals and a Trimble Zephyr Geodetic ...
