Prof Christopher Jackson, University of Manchester, joins us for a Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences seminar. Abstract below.
Volcanoes are hot, loud and scary, thus we know little of their internal structure or underlying 'plumbing systems'. Magma intrusion in the Earth's crust, and the extrusion of this material on its surface, represent a natural (geo)hazard; however, these processes can also result in the formation of economic quantities of hydrocarbons. In this talk I will show how 3D seismic reflection data can illuminate the structure and emplacement mechanics of these 'hot rocks'.
