dc.description.abstract The individual reports are preliminary assessments of the scientific background, current context, approach and objectives which each Team has elected to define for itself and for its interactions with the subject areas of other Teams. Collectively they express the working philosophy of the Basaltic Volcanism Study Project as it developed through the first six months of the Project, and in particular during the three days of individual and joint Team workshops which preceded this plenary session. en
