Volcanology Lab Course
E&ES 381

In the lab class we work on volcanic rocks (chemical analyses), carry out experiments with our backyard volcano (explosions registered on video) and with artificial lava flows, and we take field trips to study volcanic outcrops in New England.

Essential Capabilities: Designing, Creating, and Realizing, Quantitative Reasoning
Students design experiments that simulate volcanic processes. Students calculate rates of cooling and dispersal of volcanic materials from experimental data.
