Core Petrology: Physical and chemical behaviour of magmas from source to eruption

This series of three lectures moves from considering the dynamics of magma storage in the crust, the release of magmatic fluids and their interaction with existing country rock, to the dynamics of volcanic eruptions.   The first and third lectures are followed by practicals combining a mixture of calculation and thin section work, the second lecture is followed by a seminar in the BPI fluid dynamics labs from Jerome Neufeld.
