Visit Mount Etna, Europe’s largest active volcano, and study the complex processes that take place both on the surface and beneath volcanoes. During this intensive week-long field trip, you will explore many physical volcanic processes, including lava flow emplacement, explosive events and the evolution of a basaltic volcano. You will also evaluate methods of managing volcanic hazards on densely populated active volcanoes.
If you opt to take Study Abroad year, modules and field courses available for year 2 will be chosen from your host university. The fieldwork options available are subject to pre-requisites.
