Date: February 5, 2017
Time: 7:30 pm
Location: GMS Building
Speaker: Dion Stewart, Professor of Geology; Georgia State University
Topic: A Photo Tour of my 20 years of Research on Volcanoes & Magma Generation

Dion worked on more than 15 different volcanoes in such localities as Hawaii, Iceland, Italy, Mexico, and of course the USA. He will show photographs of volcanoes that vary from harmless lava domes to highly explosive and dangerous collapse calderas. His research not only included real volcanoes, but his laboratory work reproduced the internal conditions of the Earth allowing him to generate artificial magmas and some exotic minerals and gems.

Tom Batcha
Vice President of Programs
