With the Chaitén eruption still very much an ongoing event, the United States Geological Survey is working with partners in Chile to improve Chilean volcano monitoring and early warning systems. A press release about the USGS/Chile collaboration can be found in the USGS Newsroom. There’s also a CoreCast in which USGS scientists John Pallister, John Ewert and Andy Lockhart talk about their work, present and future, in Chile.

UPDATE: here’s the volcanological professional’s view at Erik Klemetti’s Eruptions blog, while this earlier NOVA Geoblog post about volcano monitoring in the United States is also very relevant.
