The school will address the main aspects of eruptive volcanic phenomena and processes and introduce various observation-, measuring- and modelling-techniques and their applications towards estimates of volcanic hazards. Emphasis will be placed on the variety of environmental settings and their influence on both monitoring methods and hazards. Case studies of recent eruptions will be presented to investigate the variety of volcanic areas (and related hazards) across the world.

The school is aimed at young scientists at Ph.D and Postdoc level. The participants will be selected on the basis of the relevance of the course for their current research activities.

The work involved in taking part will be equivalent to 4 ECTS.
