ESCI 381 - Historical Volcanology

1 unit(s)
Volcanic eruptions are among the most spectacular geological events, and their associated hazards present many challenges to human civilization. Much of our current knowledge of volcanic systems is based on the largest or most recent eruptions. In this course we investigate the methods that are employed to investigate the temporal and spatial evolution of volcanic systems. Through a combination of literature review and hands on practice, we explore the stratigraphic, geochemical, and geophysical techniques Earth scientists use to probe the evolution of modern and ancient volcanic systems. Field work may be required.

Prerequisite(s): ESCI 201  or permission of the instructor.

One 4-hour lab.
