Why Study Volcanoes at UAF
Here are a few reasons...
- Ten faculty members who are fully committed to all aspects of volcanology in the North Pacific, and several more who actively collaborate and contribute to ongoing volcanologic studies.
- Very active volcanology graduate students who are currently researching aspects of volcanic phenomena in the fields of: Igneous Petrology, Geochemistry, Geodesy, Seismology, Remote Sensing, Physical Volcanology, and Experimental Petrology.
- State of the art laboratories for microbeam analysis, experimental petrology, seismology, satellite remote sensing, and deformation studies.
- Participation with the Alaska Volcano Observatory and other international research institutions provides students with direct experience with both science-driven and hazards-driven studies directly in the public interest worldwide.
- An incredible abundance of active and/or recently active (red dots) volcanic phenomena availablefor M.S., Ph.D., and Post-Doctoral research. Interactive map
