February 4th - Extreme volcanic eruptions: global catastrophe?

 Extreme volcanic eruptions: Global catastrophe?

  • Wednesday 4 February 2015
  • University of Bath, Lecture Theatre 8W 1.1
Apart from impact by asteroids, very large magnitude explosive eruptions are the only natural hazard that could cause global disaster and a crisis for civilisation. The vulnerability of humanity to extreme events is increasing with population, environmental change and the interdependencies implicit in globalisation.
Professor Stephen Sparks will discuss super-eruptions that can be ten to one hundred times larger than the greatest eruption of the last 1,000 years.
This is the sixth lecture in the RGS's six-part series on Global Sustainability.
For more lectures, see the full GULP programme.
