Erebus volcano is a 3794 m high stratovolcano located on Ross Island in Antarctica. It is the most southerly active volcano in the world, exhibiting persistent degassing and occasional Strombolian eruptions. Additionally, Erebus hosts one of the few active lava lakes in the world making it a prime site for scientific study. The Mount Erebus Volcano Observatory is a long running project to study and monitor the volcano. In this talk I will give an overview of how fieldwork is conducted at Erebus and introduce some of the research that has been undertaken by Mount Erebus Volcano Observatory in recent years.

This talk is part of the Scott Polar Research Institute - Physical Sciences Seminar series.
