GVP Staff Contact Information

For most contacts, please use the Email graphic email address () located at the bottom of every webpage so your message can be routed to the proper person. If you prefer to directly contact a Permanent or Affiliated staff member (do not contact volunteers or contract scientists) regarding a specific question in their area of responsibility, please do not send the same message to multiple people. Media / press inquiries about current volcanic activity should be directed to Ed Venzke or Sally Sennert. Questions about other topics such as volcano science, eruptive histories, or fact-checking should be sent through the general GVP email. Thank you for your consideration.
