The module provides an introduction into volcanic and tectonic processes, with special cross-discipline emphasizes that include geologic field observations, geodetic monitoring technologies and geophysical interpretation tools. The direction of the course will change if compared to previous years, as it is planned to not only focus on deformation aspects but on remote sensing methodologies in general. These will be applied to investigate processes related to gravity tectonics, spreading, body forces, magma tectonics, dike emplacements and cooling, and faulting related deformation will be discussed. In addition, the course investigates the couplings between volcanoes and tectonic processes.
The main goal of the course is a better understanding of the remote sensing methods used for analysing deformation processes occurring in volcanic and tectonic settings, as well as interactions thereof; learn the principles of measurements from remote sensing and field stations with applications examples, and the interpretation of deformation data in experimental and computational models.
Lecturers are: apl. Prof. Dr. Thomas Walter, together with postdocs and phd students, in particular Edgar Zorn, Daniel Müller, Alina Shevchenko, and Dr. Simon Plank. Detailed materials to the online course are available on the Moodle page or search for VolcanoDeform
