Visit to LEC from Kirkham Grammar School
On Wednesday 13 February 18 Upper 6th year Geography students from Kirkham Grammar School visited LEC to experience some of our work in volcanology.
The students spent the morning exploring the fluid dynamics of volcanic conduits with a two-phase flow laboratory experiment, and understanding lava flow processes through thermal imaging and hot wax simulations.
The visit was one in an annual series to give school pupils a taste of university research. Mike James & Steve Lane
