IGA Lecture: Dr Davide Gallazzi – Italian Volcanic Activity from the Carboniferous to Present

15 April, 2015 @ 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM IST

There will, happily, be another lecture added to our spring schedule.

Dr Davide Gallazzi (consultant geologist) will give a talk on April 15th at 6:00 pm (note) in the Geological Survey of Ireland (Beggars Bush, Dublin 4) with the fascinating title of “Italian Volcanic Activity from the Carboniferous to Present, from the Alps to Sicily, amongst the God-Kings, Titans and Philosophers”.   Refreshments will commence at 5:30 pm.

Hint: This could be the prelude to a volcano-based IGA field trip later in the year!

See you at the talk!

Abstract: This lecture will present an overview of Italian volcanism, and associated magmatism, from the Carboniferous to our times, travelling from the heights of the Italian Alpes, to the shallow seabed of the Sicilian Channel, among gods, giants and clairvoyants.

Biography: Got a Masters Degree in Geological science (thesis in Volcanology) from Italian State University, Florence in 1986. Worked in exploration Geology from 1989 to 1993, and then in investigation, assessment and remediation of contaminated sites in Italy and since 1999 in Ireland. Since 2007 I work as a self-employed consultant in the fields of hydrogeology, soil and water pollution, and energy audits.
