Ruiz Revisited: New Insights on Colombian Volcanoes
Part of the Lapworth Lecture Series
The eruption of Nevado del Ruiz volcano in Colombia thirty-five years ago is remembered as one of the worst volcanic disasters in history. The events of that day not only changed lives forever, but led to a focus of study on Colombia's volcanoes to prevent such a disaster ever occurring again. David Cavell, who has spent his PhD studying the formation and history of Colombia's volcanoes, will take us through the deadly events of the 1985 eruption, the legacy it created in the study of volcanoes, and how this has led to new insights into the geological story of Colombia.
Speaker: David Cavell, University of Birmingham
