Rock Fractures and Fluid Flow
Main research fields
A scientific field that combines various principles from structural geology, volcano-deformation studies, and physics with a view of understanding what processes happen inside volcanoes during unrest periods and how those processes may or may not result in volcanic eruptions. Topics that we deal with include (a) dyke emplacement, (b) collapse-caldera formation, (c) landslides in volcanoes, (d) magma-chamber formation and development and (e) toughness and failure of volcanic edifices.
