Network objectives

The MeMoVolc programme will:

  • Forge collaborations, and build international and trans-disciplinary working groups, through scientific meetings and mobility between laboratories and observatories.
  • Tackle fundamental problems of volcano eruption dynamics synergistically at the interfaces between traditional disciplines.
  • Combine diverse measurement capabilities in multi-parameter analyses of eruptions, and work to generate the necessary theoretical and experimental frameworks for extracting quantitative eruption parameters from field and laboratory measurements with increasing accuracy and temporal resolution
  • Build physically robust eruption models, using increasing computer power to move to 3D, benchmark laboratory experiments and improved theoretical treatments to validate the component physics, and multi-parameter datasets to seek first-order consistency between models and measurements.
  • Communicate trans-disciplinary concepts and approaches to young volcano scientists, making them aware of the rich possibilities available to them.
