CSAV is based at the University of Hawaii at Hilo. Since 1990, we have been providing educational and training programs about volcanoes and earthquakes. In the mid-1990's, we branched off and began educational programs about hurricanes, tsunamis, and other natural hazards as well.

Three UH-Hilo web sites (CSAV, Natural Hazards Hawaii, and Geology) have featured low-res photos and videos for years. We are currently rebuilding the videos in high-res, and as we do, they will appear on this channel. In addition, watch for periodic new videos of eruption conditions, tsunamis, and whatever else Mother Nature sends our way.

Current equipment: Sony DCR VX2100 Handycam & Sachtler tripod. Computer: Mac G5; editing with Final Cut Pro.
