(Out of) this world volcanoes in Sam Poppe's reseach at the 6th ŚFN KATOWICE

He is fascinated by the structural deformation of volcanoes. His research aims to understand how magma moves beneath the Earth’s surface and in the crusts of planetary bodies (especially the Moon and Mars) and deforms the rocks and ultimately the planet's surface. A planetary geologist and volcanologist Sam Poppe, PhD, will be our guest at the 6th Silesian Science Festival KATOWICE.

He has worked on active volcanoes in the East African Rift and Comoros, and on older inactive volcanic systems in Norway and the Sudetes in Poland. He uses field (on Earth) and remote observations from active or inactive volcanoes in the Solar System, laboratory modelling with photogrammetry and X-ray computed tomography and occasionally geochemical rock analysis. As project leader at the Space Research Centre of the Polish Academy of Sciences, he has also recently started developing new numerical models of volcano deformation.

He is a dedicated, award-winning science communicator who often helps journalists report on the latest volcanic eruptions.

We will meet with Sam Poppe, PhD during the 6th Silesian Science Festival KATOWICE from 3 to 5 December 2022.
