Science of risk prize
A research paper co-authored by Univ’s Tamsin Mather, Supernumerary Fellow in Earth Sciences and Professor of Earth Sciences, has been awarded a Science of Risk prize.
The research, led by Dr Juliet Biggs of the University of Bristol, looked at satellite imagery data for 500 volcanoes worldwide, monitoring which volcanoes were deforming to establish statistical evidence of their eruption potential.
Further testing of this link could eventually develop into a forecast system for all volcanoes, including those that are remote and inaccessible.
