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.
