Volcanoes have inspired wonder and fear in equal measure for centuries. Yet we still do not understand them well enough to be able to forecast when they will erupt and how they will affect populations who live nearby.
This talk will explore how volcanologists piece together the information that they have to help them understand volcanic eruptions, and how sparkling insights into volcanic behaviour can come from a surprising range of people: from meteorologists to sociologists, historians and writers.
You don’t have to be an expert to enjoy this free public lecture, and there will be a chance to meet the speaker at a drinks reception after the talk.
