Volcano guest speaker

Stromboli eruption'My Exploding World'

Mountaineering introduced me to exciting landscapes formed by volcanoes. Wanting to learn more I studied geology at university and embarked on an appreciation of volcanoes around the world, learning that they are economically and socially important as well as endlessly fascinating and awe inspiring. Surprisingly, climate change could affect their activity too.

volcano eruption alertMy work with volcanoes has taken me to Pompeii, Herculaneum & Vesuvius, Hawaii (collecting samples of molten lava), Canada (evading grizzlies), Montserrat (evading ash avalanches), New Zealand (evading jail!), Etna and Stromboli, and Iceland.

In this talk I share some surprising insights and dramatic video and still photography, and explain why volcanoes are so important, exciting, and relevant to understanding our world.
