Course description and aims

Advanced lectures dealing with chemical processes of volcanic phenomena as drastic emission of material and energy related to geophysical phenomena.

Student learning outcomes

Acquisition of advanced knowledge for chemical characteristics and reaction of gas, liquid and solid associated with volcanic phenomena

Keywords

geochemistry, volcanic chemistry, volcanic gas, volcanic eruption, disaster prevention

Competencies that will be developed

Specialist skills Intercultural skills Communication skills Critical thinking skills Practical and/or problem-solving skills

Class flow

Chemical reactions among gas, liquid, and solid phases at active volcanoes in the first half of the course. Thermal activity according with volcanic activity in the latter half of the course.
