Naked Scientists 15.05.05 - Violent Volcanoes

May 4th, 2015

Episode 952 of 1055 episodes

Celebrating two hundred years since the devastating eruption of Indonesia's Mount Tambora, this week, accompanied by music from Michael Levy, we explore the science of volcanoes. We find out what causes volcanoes, we ask whether eruptions can be predicted, how we can keep people safe, and we re-create the physics of an eruption in the laboratory.
