Studied volcanoes

The volcanoes we study Understanding volcanism requires the acquisition of field data: visible and thermal imagery, geophysical campaigns, gas, rock and ash sampling for petrological and geochemical analyses, mapping of deposits and destruction, etc. Our targets depend on the current activity, research themes and our collaborations with French laboratories and observatories, as well as partn...

Numerical volcanology

Have also a look on numerical laboratory The volcanology team has numerical simulation tools, some of which were developed in the laboratory: the VolcFlow code for modelling volcanic flows, deformation models and magma transfers using boundary elements and fictitious domains (DefVolc). This activity is partly based on the computing resources of the UCA's mesocentre and the platform for remote s...

Textural analysis laboratory

The Magmas and Volcanoes laboratory has one of the most complete textural analysis laboratories for volcanic products. This theme benefits from an OPGC observation service: DynVolc.
