The Geosciences Dept. and Class of 60’s Lecture Program present Dr. Kristina Walowski, Assistant Professor of Geology at Middlebury College, speaking on “Before it Blows: the Science Behind Volcanic Eruptions in the Cascade Arc.” Dr. Waloski primarily utilizes melt inclusions (tiny blobs of magma trapped in crystals) and mafic minerals (olivine, pyroxene, and spinel) to study a variety of magmatic processes from magma reservoir evolution and eruption dynamics, to mantle melting and volatile recycling in the mantle.
