The research efforts of the volcanology program broadly fall in two groups. Each research topic is approached by combining multidisciplinary observations with theoretical modelling. The research spans the generation and evolution of pockets of magma at depth in the mantle, their transport through the mantle and crust of the Earth, emplacement of magma within the crust or its catastrophic eruption to the surface, along with its environmental consequences.
