Matt Brueseke, professor in the geology department, presented at the International Association of Volcanology and Chemistry of the Earth's Interior Scientific Assembly, Rotorua, New Zealand, Jan. 30-Feb.3. 

Brueseke's presentation was "Investigating <10 Ma off-axis magmatism in the Centennial Valley, Montana and upper Wind River Basin-Jackson Hole, Wyoming: Yellowstone hotspot — lithosphere interactions at the leading edge of the Snake River Plain (USA)."

The International Association of Volcanology and Chemistry of the Earth's Interior is the primary international organization for research in volcanology and igneous petrology, efforts to mitigate volcanic disasters and research into closely related disciplines, such as critical minerals needed for societal sustainable development goals.

The assembly was originally scheduled for 2021, and over 800 participants from more than 40 countries attended in person. Travel was supported by ongoing National Science Foundation funding and a recently awarded K-State Faculty Development Grant.
