NEMOH is an Initial Training Network under the European Community FP7. The training objective of NEMOH is that of forming the next generation of European volcanologists, capable of extending further the knowledge and understanding of volcano dynamics and the methods and paradigms for volcanic hazard evaluation. Training is conceived to develop in the context of internationally coordinated research structured in closely interconnected research activities.

Course program

Training Material NEW!

March 03 - March 06, 2015, Pisa (Italy)

This Course, aimed at Early Stage Researcher and PhD students, focuses on thermodynamics and fluid dynamics with application to computational models for volcanology. A team of modellers will lead 3 days of lectures, practical exercises and discussion related to: Thermodynamics: from basic concepts to problem-solving in volcanology; Fluid dynamics: flow problems and boundary conditions in volcanology; OpenFOAM*: how it works and what you can do with it.

EGU 2015. Quantitative and multi-disciplinary volcanology: The next generation

The session is co-sponsored by the Marie Curie Initial Training Network NEMOH (

The limits of volcanology are currently being expanded through quantitative approaches, employed to investigate volcanoes, understand their dynamics, and forecast their hazards. Increasing resources of computing power, new analytical methods and experimental facilities are advancing and deepening our understanding of magmatic processes. Direct observations by various geophysical and geochemical instruments are providing important constraints of subsurface magma movements and eruption processes.

EGU 2015 - Integrating multidisciplinary observations of volcanic explosions

During the upcoming EGU 2015 conference in Vienna (from the 12th to the 17th of April) a newsworthy session will be convened by Antonio Capponi (ULANC) together with Cristian Montanaro (DEES), Elisabetta Del Bello (INGV), Bettina Scheu (DEES) and Steve Lane (ULANC). Further details of the session can be found here:

The session focus on how the understanding of shallow volcanic processes can benefit from the integration of field observations, acquired geophysical signals and experimental studies. The lack of a session an on experimental-observations related topics at last EGU, and the will to have a group of young new scientists as conveners, has brought us to propose this session!
