Pint of Science 2016: Bubbles, Beer and Volcanic Eruptions

imageDr Tom Pering will be taking part and delivering a talk at this year’s festival in Sheffield – representing Geography.

Through the medium of beer, Tom will explain the journey of the gas bubbles that drive a volcanic eruption, from birth, to eruption at the surface.

‘I will be in esteemed company with Dr Ed Daw who will be talking about gravitational waves detected as part of the LIGO experiment in a combined event called Ripples and Bangs. I will of course be contributing the "Bangs" part of the event - where I will discuss my previous, ongoing and future research into the behavior of bubbles at basaltic volcanoes.’ Tom Pering
