Get an introduction to geology. Discover where materials that make up everyday objects come from and how to use them sustainably. Everything we use that has not been grown either contains or relies on materials that have been sourced by a geoscientist. Whether we are standing out in the wilderness, in the middle of a city or in our home, geology and the Earth’s natural resources are all around us, forming an integral part of our everyday lives.

Pourquoi la Terre est-elle une planète volcanique et quels sont les grands types d'éruptions volcaniques rencontrés sur notre planète ? Comment peut-on comprendre et modéliser les éruptions volcaniques ? Peut-on prédire une éruption volcanique et comment gère-t-on une crise éruptive ? Le MOOC « Volcanologie physique » a pour objectif de répondre à ces questions en introduisant les connaissances géologiques de référence et les méthodes de base des sciences physiques nécessaires à la compréhension du fonctionnement des volcans.

Volcanic eruptions are a powerful demonstration of the energy of the Earth´s interior. A materials-based understanding of the evolution of erupting systems provides a quantitative physico-chemical description of the nature of lava and magma and the role of experiments in quantifying the eruptive process.
