AVO STAFF DIRECTORY
AVO is a very extended family. Some people work full time for the observatory, others well under half time. Others perform essential work, but only draw operating expenses. Several agencies contribute personnel at several locations. A wide variety of disciplines are represented, including geophysics, geology, glaciology, hydrology, geochemistry, remote sensing, computing, electronics, and administration. The following people are the paid staff, and share among themselves about 22 Full Time Equivalent positions.

Chris Nye manages the participation within AVO of the Alaska Division of Geological and Geophysical Surveys. Duties include operational, managerial, and programmatic tasks, and studies of active volcanism and volcanic deposits. Research focuses on the geochemistry, petrology and geology of convergent margin volcanoes, with special emphasis on detailed trace-element geochemical studies of individual volcanoes in an attempt to understand temporal variations in their magmatic plumbing systems. Additional interests involve regional and arcwide patterns of volcanism and the interplay between volcanism and neotectonics.
