Research Overview

I study the degassing of subglacial volcanic systems in Iceland. My PhD was based at the rhyolite central volcano Torfajökull. We reconstructed palaeo-ice thicknesses and determined the role of volatiles in determining how explosive the eruptions were. Now I am doing a post-doc on the 1918 eruption of Katla. We will look at the way in which Katla degassed and interacted with the overlying ice. Hopefully, by understanding what was controlling explosivity in the 1918 eruption we can help to mitigate and plan for the next eruption.

What affects the eruptive behaviour of subglacial volcanoes? Case studies from Torfajökull and Katla
