If you missed the London Volcano, fear not, as ‘Oxford Volcano’ will be here soon!
Professor David Pyle and colleagues from the STREVA Project spent a week last October setting off eruptions on the West Lawn of the Natural History Museum in London.
A 3-metre scale model of La Soufrière volcano on St Vincent was built for the London Volcano event, and will be at various science events during the summer to mark the 50th anniversary of the Natural Environment Research Council, NERC.
Why not join us at an event near you?!
