About Michael

Post-doctoral Researcher on a NERC Urgency Grant

A field and lab based research post to study the recent increase in activity of Volcan de Colima, Mexico. I will be comparing multiple different monitoring datasets, including direct visual observations, SO2 gas emissions (with a UV camera and flyspec), seismic data, satellite imagery and subsequent analysis of the erupted tephra. We are hoping that this dataset will provide information regarding the volcano’s current state, including the effusion rate, fragmentation mechanisms and eruptive processes, which may prove to be important for those living in close proximity to the volcano. (PI: Dr Paul Cole)
