Short Course on Magma, Eruptions and Risks (MER) / Mar 28-31, 2017

After successful editions in the last two years, we are pleased to
announce the third edition of the “Magma, Eruption and Risks” short

course that will be held at the Department of Physics and Geology of the

University of Perugia at 28-31 March 2017.


The four days short course is aimed to provide an up to date and modern

knowledge about magmatic-volcanic processes in the Earth interior,

dynamics of volcanic eruptions, and their impact on society. It consists of

three days with lectures in the morning and exercises in the afternoon

and a one day excursion to the Roman Magmatic province where

students will be trained on how to analyse volcanic successions

(explosive to effusive faces).


The short course is addressed to master and PhD students. The number

of participants is restricted to a maximum of 25.

Successful participation in the short course will be honoured by three

credit points. A certificate of participation in the short course on Magmas,

Eruption and Risks can be obtained after submission and acceptance of

a short report.


There are no registration fees. However, participants have to organize

their travel and stay in Perugia by themselve, and we ask for a

contribution of 20 € to the excursion costs.


Speakers: Chiara Cardaci, Jacopo Taddeucci, Daniele Morgavi, Maurizio

Petrelli, Diego Perugini, Francois Holtz, Jürgen Koepke, Harald Behrens

and Francesco Vetere.
