På detta zoom-seminarium får du lära dig hur vulkaner kan ge lika mycket som de tar och att det är den prekära balansen att förstå vulkaner och övervaka deras aktivitet som kommer att göra oss allt bättre på att "skörda" de fördelar som vulkanerna ger. Seminariet ges på engelska.

Volcanoes are widely recognized for their destructive potential and have been viewed to represent the seat of wrathful deities or even the entrance to hell. While their direct and indirect negative effects are often most strikingly displayed, volcanoes also provide us with a vastness of resources that shape our daily lives and without which we would not exist in the way we are today. 

UppTalk Weekly is a popular science seminar series via Zoom where you get to enjoy interesting conversations and interdisciplinary panel discussions with researchers from Uppsala University every Tuesday at lunch. The conversations revolve around socially relevant topics and where you as an audience have the opportunity to ask questions to our researchers.
