      Volcanoes and past climate: adventures with deep carbon Tamsin Mather, University of Oxford  Volcanoes are spectacular natural phenomena. Earth has experienced volcanism since its beginnings and observing a volcanic eruption is a truly primeval experience. Volcanoes have shaped our planet and have been key in creating and maintaining its habitability. However, they can also be deadly natural hazards and are implicated in some of the greatest environment crises in Earth’s history, such as mass extinction events.   In this talk, volcanologist Professor Tamsin Mather will explore some of the different types of volcanic activity that we see on Earth today and have seen over its geological history. Volcanism is intimately linked with our planet's geological carbon cycle and therefore its long-term climate. This talk will reveal how studying volcanic gases and rocks today can give us fundamental insights on some of the drivers of long-term global climate evolution and some of the most profound environmental changes in geological history including mass extinction events. 17.30 Registration 18.00 Lecture begins 18.45 Questions and answers 19.00 Lecture ends and there is a short soft drinks reception in the lower library 20.00 Close   For more information, please check out the website www.geolsoc.og.uk
