A "HOT" TOPIC: Guest speaker and volcanologist R. Stephen Sparks spoke at a luncheon April 10 in the Earth and Environmental Sciences Department. Sparks is considered the leading volcanologist in the world.

Sparks, fellow of the Royal Society and director of the Centre for Environmental and Geophysical Flows a the University of Bristol in the United Kingdom, lectured on "The Dynamics of Kimberlite Eruptions." 

 

The lecture, sponsored by the Earth and Environmental Sciences Department, was attended by more than 100 students, faculty staff and guests. Sparks also delivered a public science lecture titled "How Volcanos Work," which focused on the eruptions occurring over the last decade in the Caribbean. (Photos by Olivia Bartlett)
