The CVG mission is to:
- Undertake pioneering and exciting research into magmatic and volcanic processes and their impacts through integrated field, remote sensing, laboratory and theoretical approaches
- Provide and support volcanological training and research at undergraduate, postgraduate and postdoctoral levels
- Interface research activities and our development of advanced volcano surveillance techniques with the volcano observatory community and other end users
- Promote public understanding of volcanology
Research focuses on development of novel volcano surveillance techniques, detailed investigations of individual volcanoes and significant eruptions, fundamental studies of volcano-atmosphere-climate interactions, experimental work on eruption dynamics, and petrological and geochemical studies of the evolution of magmas. We are mostly based in the Faculty of Earth Sciences and Geography.
