EUROVOLC Iceland Summer School 2021

Eruptive processes, observations and responses

The school will address the main aspects of eruptive volcanic phenomena and processes and introduce various observation-, measuring- and modelling-techniques and their applications towards estimates of volcanic hazards. Emphasis will be placed on the variety of environmental settings and their influence on both monitoring methods and hazards. Case studies of recent eruptions will be presented to investigate the variety of volcanic areas (and related hazards) across the world.

Summer school participants will receive relevant teaching material and video tutorials and are required to engage actively in the school by participating in delegated group assignment. 

Due to COVID-19 travel restrictions, the school will be hosted remotely via Zoom. 

Dates: 20-23 & 27-29 September 2021

The school is aimed at young scientists at Ph.D and Postdoc level. The participants will be selected on the basis of the relevance of the course for their current research activities.

Deadline for registration: 
20 August 2021

Information on acceptance:

Optional field trip: Summer school participants who are interested in a geological field trip to the eruption site at Fagradalsfjall may register here separately. A one-day field trip, guided by several of the summer school lecturers will be arranged for those interested. It will take place in the week following the summer school. The fieldtrip is not required to complete the school. Travel to Iceland, maintenance and accommodation, will be the responsibility of each participant.

EUROVOLC Etna Summer School 2019

Understanding sub-surface volcanic processes

The students will be introduced to multi-parametric modelling, data analysis and interpretation, and modelling of the sub-surface volcano dynamics. The school includes 2 days of frontal lessons, 1 day of excursion on Mount Etna visiting the multi-parametric monitoring stations, and 2 days of practical activities by the students in analyzing, processing and interpreting real data from Mount Etna. 

The venue of the school is Linguaglossa (Catania, Italy), on the shoulders of Mount Etna. An icebreaker party will be held on September 1 at 20:00. A social dinner will be held on September 3. Each student will be asked to bring a poster on their current research activities, that will be on display for the entire duration of the school.

Dates: 2-6 September 2019

The school is aimed at young scientists at Ph.D and Post-Ph.D level. The participants will be selected on the basis of the relevance of the course for their current research activities.

Deadline for registration:
