Event details

Volcanoes erupt around the world in lots of different ways - some pour out rivers of red-hot lava, while others explode with a bang! Why do we see these different types of eruption?

What is going on inside the volcano?

Join researchers from the University of Manchester and explore what makes a volcano tick though a series of rather messy experiments - including some you can do at home.

About the speakers

Volcanologists at the University of Manchester study volcanoes all over the world in a variety of ways, from looking at the rocks formed as magma moves deep underground, to the gases emitted by volcanoes into our atmosphere, to even looking at volcanoes on the Moon!
