Description:

"A National Volcano Early Warning System-NVEWS-is being formulated by the Consortium of U.S. Volcano Observatories (CUSVO) to establish a proactive, fully integrated, national-scale monitoring effort that ensures the most threatening volcanoes in the United States are properly monitored in advance of the onset of unrest and at levels commensurate with the threats posed." At this website, users can download the USGS's 62 page report detailing the current monitoring system and the proposed changes to the level of monitoring at each volcano. Visitors can discover why monitoring is needed through the descriptions of the damage volcanoes have caused in the United States since 1980 and their future threats.
