Using your science to understand volcanic eruptions

Thursday 6th Feb 2020, 12.50pm

Volcanoes are present across the Earth, from the barren wastes of Antarctica to densely populated regions in Europe, Asia and the Americas, and are both spectacular and deadly. But what makes a volcano erupt, and how deadly might that eruption be? By creating a mini-volcano in the lab, we can get a better understanding of what was going on in the magma chamber just before a volcanic eruption.
