Petro-Volcanology Research Group (PVRG) @ unipg


PVRG

Our research group aims at understanding magma bodies from their formation to emission on the Earth’s surface through volcanic eruptions. State-of-the-art analytical techniques and new experiments in our HT Lab allow us to understand and mimic magmatic processes.
We combine innovative conceptual models based on Chaos Theory, Fractal Geometry, Non-Linear dynamics and Computational Fluid Dynamics to provide unprecedented information on igneous systems and the mechanisms leading to volcanic eruptions.
