The Volcanology Group conducts research using a combination of field studies, geophysics, experiments and numerical models to understand the processes that control magmatic systems and volcanic eruptions and to develop methods of hazard and risk assessment. Our research connects to communities, government and industry, been included in United Nations policy, and had significant economic impacts in mining, insurance and aviation.
