2015 MeMoVolc Summer School Magma: from  crustal storage to eruption triggering

28 September to 1 October, 2015, Santorini, Greece

Organisers T.H. Druitt (Clermont-Ferrand, France), L. Francalanci (Florence, Italy) and L. Caricchi (Geneva, Switzerland)

The third MeMoVolc summer school took place over 4 days (28 September to 1 October 2015) on Santorini Volcano, Greece. It was attended by 10 lecturers and 29 students of Masters, PhD and postdoctoral levels. Nine of the lectures addressed different concepts and techniques relevant to the theme of magma ascent through the crust, and one presented recent work carried out on this theme on Santorini Volcano. The lectures involved a mixture of presentations and student exercises. The third day was devoted to a field excursion including a visit to a quarry, a visit to the Kameni volcano, and a volcanological tour of the caldera. The lecturers came from 7 countries, and the students from 8 countries.
