Each month, Professor Jared Shaw with the UC Davis Department of Chemistry hosts the Davis Science Café, featuring scientists who are studying some of today’s cutting edge topics. This month’s speaker is Prof. Kari Cooper in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences who studies the thermal and physical states of magma in volcanos. Invite a friend, and get here early to grab a seat at G. Street Wunderbar. Let’s drink to science!

Abstract: Volcanic eruptions have far-reaching and potentially devastating consequences. As a result, volcanoes have been objects of fascination throughout human history, and people have attempted to control or predict them since the beginning, with notably limited success. Even with all of our modern tools and technology, accurate forecasts are challenging. This talk will explore the causes and consequences of eruptions, what is needed in order to do a better job of forecasting eruptions, and some encouraging new initiatives and programs that could help make this happen.
