Volcanoes: the good, the bad and the ugly
  • Lecture Theatre 2, Roland Levinsky Building, University of Plymouth

Save event

Volcanoes have an explosive ability to both inspire and destroy, and the scientists that study them - volcanologists - have made amazing advances in understanding how some of our planet’s most violent natural phenomena impact on those living in their risky shadow. 

In a talk that will combine first-hand experiences from Earth’s geological hot spots with the latest volcano science, we will explore, from the safety of a Plymouth lecture theatre, some of the most dangerous volcanoes in the world. Our guide through this volcanic world tour will be the Volcano Top Trumps – the popular card game designed to bring home to public audiences the potential threat and natural wonder of 30 of the planet’s volcanoes. 

Join us for a talk that aims to inspire the next generation of volcano hunters. 

The lecture starts at 18:00 and all are welcome. Please register your place via the above link.
