Join Prof. Ben Edwards for a discussion about how climate change will affect volcanoes around the world.
Livestreams and Webinars While global warming caused by climate change is having many negative impacts on the environment, it will also affect volcanoes and their future eruptions. For example, rapid melting of glaciers in the western U.S., Iceland, Alaska, South American and the Antarctic will have positive and negative impacts. The melting may lessen the future likelihood of large mudflows that are sometimes produced by eruptions at these volcanoes, but it might also increase the activity at some of those volcanoes, especially if they have magma stored close to Earth’s surface. Join this discussion to learn more about the linkages between planetary climate and volcanoes. Register by Thursday February 22 at 8 a.m.
