Volcanoes provide endless fascination and sometimes awesome power and danger. Mathematics can be used to help understand how expanding gases break rock and cause hot rock and ash to erupt violently from earth to air in huge black clouds. Recent mathematical modelling has been inspired by laboratory observations of exploding rocks and dusts, and this lecture will explain the implications of this modelling for the homogeneity of ejected materials.

 The 10×10 series - ten speakers at ten locations in ten months. Come and listen to New Zealand mathematicians talking about their work and how they are helping to find solutions to today's problems.
