Profile of Professorship in Experimental Petrology

  The recruited person will be assigned to the experimental petrology team of the Laboratory Magmas and Volcanoes (LMV), a research unit of Clermont Auvergne University, CNRS and IRD. His/her work should be complementary with the other Team’s members and enrich the research axes of this team. It can also be part of one of the transversal research axes of the LMV ("Geodynamic Mechanisms of the Early Earth", "Regional Geology: Volcanism and Environments"). The profile is broadly open and encompasses the study of petrologic, magmatic and metamorphic processes and their relationship to the...

Post-eruptive flooding of Santorini caldera and implications for tsunami generation

The eruption of Santorini Volcano in the late Bronze Age was one of the largest of the last 10,000 years, and it has been implicated in the decline of the Minoan civilization on Crete. The eruption emptied a large magma chamber beneath the volcano, causing a caldera to collapse. Tsunamis caused by the eruption impacted the northern coast of Crete and possibly a large extent of the eastern Mediterranean coastline. While it is now thought that the eruption did not directly cause Minoan decline, it may have been a contributing factor through destruction of shipping, harbours and maritime trade. ...
