MAGNET hits the road: 2nd annual workshop in California

June 2014

MAGNET recently held a volcanology field workshop in California (June 14-21, 2014), with 25 participants from the undergraduate to postdoctoral level, plus staff and faculty from UBC, McGill, University of Toronto, and Université du Québec à Chicoutimi.


The group explored two spectacular field sites – the Long Valley caldera and the highlands of the Medicine Lake shield volcano – which provided an opportunity to compare two large volcanic systems with different tectonic settings, plumbing dynamics, eruptive histories and products. The field workshop was a huge success, both scientifically and personally for everyone involved, and was another important milestone for the MAGNET program.
