Carnegie science: Dr. Diana Roman – When the Volcano Stirs

Wednesday, May 31, 2017 –

6:30pm to 8:00pm

Volcanic eruptions pose an increasing threat to human lives and infrastructure in today’s rapidly globalizing world, leading to a need for more-sensitive and accurate tools for detecting and interpreting signs of volcanic unrest. Fortunately, most volcanoes give subtle indications of their future eruptive potential that can be detected using state-of-the-art seismic instrumentation. Dr. Roman will explore the recent development of several new paradigms for eruption forecasting and their implications for our understanding of how volcanoes work.
