About NEMOH

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.

Antonio successfully defended his PhD thesis

Many congratulations to NEMOH ESR fellow Antonio Capponi who successfully defended his PhD thesis “The consequences of gas slug ascent in a stratified magma on Strombolian eruption dynamics” on Monday, at Lancaster University, U.K.. Anto’s thesis combined laboratory experiments, numerical simulation and field observations, and was examined by Dr Andy Folkard (Lancaster) and Dr Jerry Phillips (University of Bristol), and he was supervised by Steve Lane and Mike James. Well done Anto!

At the Finish Line of our Training: The Last NEMOH School at Linguaglossa

Laura Spina – NEMOH fellow

Framed by the rugged landscape of Mt. Etna, the Final NEMOH School has taken place on 9-14 November 2015 at Linguaglossa (Catania, Italy).  After having received a broad and stimulating training on investigation and monitoring techniques, it finally comes the time to test ourselves with the fundamental question: what would we actually do during a volcanic crisis?

NEMOH Final Conference - REPORT

Léna Cauchie and Samantha Engwell – NEMOH fellows

After spending a week on the slopes of Etna, the NEMOH fellows travelled to Catania for the final NEMOH conference. The day before the conference, the fellows were invited on a tour of INGV Catania volcano observatory where they learnt of the eruptive history of Etna and the response procedures implemented during an eruptive crisis. The fellows were given a tour of the control room where monitoring of the volcano occurs, and were introduced to the techniques used to observe the volcano.
