Volcanoes and us

The Royal Society, London, 6-9 Carlton House Terrace, London, SW1Y 5AG

Join Cabot Institute Distinguished Fellow Steve Sparks as he discusses his fascinating career studying volcanoes, one of the most dynamic phenomena on earth.

Explore how Steve’s work has contributed to our understanding of volcanoes and discover why curiosity-driven research is so important to society.

Steve has been involved in disaster response in Montserrat, aviation emergencies over Iceland, radioactive waste in Japan and mining for copper in the remnants of ancient volcanoes, and he continues to advise and instruct governments on disaster risk reduction.

In June 2015 Steve Sparks was presented with the 2015 Vetlesen Prize, along with prize money of $250,000 for his pioneering work.
