A major geoscience conference exploring the latest developments in volcanology, tectonics and geophysics research has been held on campus this week.
The Joint Assembly brought together, for the first time, the annual meetings of the British Geophysical Association (BGA), the Volcanic and Magmatic Studies Group (VMSG) and the Tectonic Studies Group (TSG) to promote inter-disciplinary collaboration between the study groups.
Attracting over 450 scientists from across the globe, the Joint Assembly provided the opportunity to learn about the latest research in the fields of volcanology, tectonics and geophysics research as well as mark the milestone of 100 years of Geology at Liverpool.
Yan Lavallee, Professor in volcanology at Liverpool and Chair of the Local Organising Committee for the conference, said: “The Joint Assembly brought together scientists from three distinct but related fields of Earth Sciences to Liverpool to discuss the latest discoveries and advances in each discipline and explore the plethora of cross-disciplinary research that is pushing the frontiers across Earth Sciences in the UK and overseas.”
Dr Jackie Kendrick, who lead the organisation of the conference, added “Liverpool has world-leading research strengths in these areas and it was a pleasure to host the event in this city, the reception has been fantastic.”
The University is one of the leading centres for research in Volcanology, Microstructures and Deformation, Earthquake Seismology and Geodynamics and there was an opportunity for students and early career researchers to participate in a range of workshops before and after the conference, which focused on experimental volcanology, seismology, tectonics and more.
