What we do:

Cambridge Volcano Seismology group explores many applications of volcano seismology, from what we can learn about movement of magma in the earth's crust and rift zone dynamics, to the very structure of the earth itself. Our current research focus is central Iceland where we operate an extensive seismic array.

Most recently this network captured a 46 km magmatic intrusion from the Bárðarbunga volcano to the Holuhraun lava field, which resulted in a spectacular 6-month fissure eruption.
