Experimental access to volcanic eruptions: Driving Observational Potential

Project description

Eavesdropping on volcanoes to help forecast eruptions

The activity of explosive volcanic systems is central to the evolution of our world. However, predicting their collective effects is prevented by our limited mechanistic understanding of eruptive and post-eruptive processes. Recent experimental findings bring us closer to this mechanistic understanding. These include the development of in situ high-temperature synchrotron-based real-time imaging techniques for deforming systems, acoustic monitoring of failure and fragmentation processes in exploding magma, and dynamic ash-gas environmental reaction chambers. The EU-funded EAVESDROP project will explore these recent findings and bring the effect of an experimental method to volcanology to its maximum potential.
