Advanced School on Physics of Volcanoes-
ICTP - Trieste, Italy, 17 - 21 October 2016
Deadline for Application: August 14th 2016

The aim of this school is to focus on the state of the art in the physics of
volcanoes in order to give participants a better understanding of the physical
and tectonic processes related to volcanoes and the associated hazards.
The topics of the school are:

• Physics of magma migration, storage and volcanic unrest
• Magmatic processes within continental and oceanic rift zones
• Volcano seismology and analysis of seismicity to understand distinct
volcanic processes
• Ground deformation and magma movements and eruptions
• Stress field around volcanoes and impact on magma dynamics
• Mechanics of magma reservoirs
• Volcano-earthquake interaction

The topics will be covered using a combination of theoretical, numerical and
experimental approaches. The importance of integrating observations and
field data with theoretical and modeling results will be highlighted.

Lecturers:
Paul Segall, Michael Manga, Claude Jaupart, Cynthia Ebinger, Torsten Dahm, Daniele Carbone, Valerio Acocella.

The school is intended for PhD students and postdocs working in these topics.
A limited number of grants are available to support the travel and living expenses of
selected participants, with priority given to PhD students and early career scientists
working in a developing country.
There are no registration fees.
