Speakers: Professor Kathy Cashman, School of Earth Sciences, University of Bristol.

For the past century, the paradigm of the magma chamber has informed models of magma evolution and underpinned studies of volcanic processes. Over the past decade views of sub-volcanic systems have changed dramatically - and with them ideas about triggers for volcanic eruptions. Professor Cashman will review both past and present understandings of what lies beneath active volcanoes, and how these changing views are altering our perspectives on both monitoring and forecasting volcanic eruptions.
