In December an unexpected volcanic eruption on White Island in New Zealand killed twenty-one people, while in the Philippines, the eruption of Taal Volcano caused thousands of people to flee the area. With Climate Change, will volcanic eruptions become more frequent moving forward? Maria Armoudian discusses the science and chemistry of volcanoes with Jihong Cole-Dai, Charles B. Connor, and Ivan Savov.
Jihong Cole-Dai is a Professor of Analytical Chemistry at South Dakota State University. Cole-Dai is an expert in paleoclimatology and ice cores.
Charles Connor is a Professor in the school of geosciences at the University of South Florida. Conner is an expert in volcanology and geophysics.
Ivan Savov is a Lecturer in the school of earth and environment at the University of Leeds. Savov is an expert in geochemistry and volcanology.
