Syun-Ichi Akasofu will give a presentation on his research philosophy Thursday, Jan. 24, from 1-2 p.m. in Akasofu 401. “My research begins when I find observed facts which are inconsistent, contradictory or wrong in well-established theories,” he said. A professor emeritus of physics, Akasofu was the director of the Geophysical Institute from 1986 to 1999 and the founding director of the International Arctic Research Center from its establishment in 1998 until January 2007.

S.T. Lee Fellowship Presentation- Stratovolcano mapping and paleoclimate: a complementary story of lava and ice

Oct 12, 2018 at 10:00 am11:00 am

Stratovolcanic deposits are potentially powerful paleoclimatic records: lavas can be radiometrically dated, lava geometries describe the thicknesses of ice masses at particular elevations, and water-supported deposits (e.g., hyaloclastites) describe subglacial ice structures. Although glaciovolcanism is not a new concept, it is underutilised in both stratovolcano mapping and paleoclimate studies. This talk looks beyond the well-known relationships between large volcanic eruptions and climatic response.
