Title: A volcanologist's life in Washington D.C.

One might not expect there to be much work for a volcanologist in Washington D.C., but there is actually quite a variety of work to be done. Gari Mayberry discussed her various job duties as a U.S. Geological Survey employee stationed at the Smithsonian Institution's Global Volcanism Program, and her work with the U.S. Agency for International Development. Topics included the Weekly Volcanic Activity Report, and a new database compilation of reported incidents of airports impacted by volcanic activity.
