Students on the rim of Mount Etna's crater

Italy

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.
