Historical geography may be defined most simply as the study of the geography of places in the past. While it would appear to be relatively easy to differentiate between the ‘past’ and the ‘present’, there is room for some debate about when the ‘present’ ends and the ‘past’ begins.

I have been interested in volcanoes for well over 30 years. My research group, in the Department of Earth Sciences, studies magmatic processes.  We want to answer simple questions. How is magma generated? How does it move towards the surface? Where is it stored before volcanic eruptions? What is the relationship between magmatism and environmental change?
