The Physics of Volcanoes
You will become geophysical experts and using laboratory experiments, you will see how the Earth and its geographical features were formed: What is our planet like inside? Why do tectonic plates move? How do they relate to volcanic activity?
You will also be experimenting with creating different types of geographical features to see how the forces applied shaped the earth’s crust. You’ll also find out about different types of volcanic eruptions, their characteristics, and what makes an eruption either more or less violent. Finally, we will transfer all our knowledge to La Garrotxa, to see the geological processes that have given shape to the unique landscape of this area.
