Objectif

During this advanced course of Volcanology we will show how petrology can be applied to unravel the processes of magma transfer, accumulation and evolution in the Earth's crust and how these processes affect the eruptive dynamics of volcanoes. Petrology will be combined with the quantitative study of pyroclastic deposits to demonstrate how the chemical and physical characterization of volcanic products can be used to characterize the processes leading to the variety of volcanic eruptions we observe on our planet.
