How to look inside a volcano

Part of the Lapworth Lecture Series

Volcanoes are big, hot, loud, and scary; because of this, we know little of their internal structure or underlying 'plumbing system', despite them representing a global natural hazard. In this talk, Chris will show how new 3D seismic imaging techniques can be used to illuminate the structure of volcanoes and the evolution of their underlying 'hot rocks’.

Speaker: Chris Jackson, Imperial College
