Citizen Science

There are many ways for citizens to help out during eruptions. Making observations during and after ash-fall events and collecting ashfall samples are both very useful ways of helping scientists to understand and document an eruption as well as help to mitigate hazards associated with ashfall. Click on the relevant links on this page to learn more about how to report your observations of ashfall and how to collect scientific samples. Thank you for your participation in volcano science!
