This week's seminars
Statistics Seminars: ''Apocalyptic volcanic super eruption that could DESTROY civilisation is much closer than we thought'', say experts
15 November 2018 16:00 in CLC407 (Kingsley Barrett room, Calman Learning Centre)
In a recent paper we re-estimated the global magnitude-frequency relationship of large explosive volcanic eruptions (https://doi.org/10.1016/j.epsl.2017.11.015). I will describe how we addressed the twin problems of mis- and under-recording in the historical record, and how we quantified our uncertainties. I will also discuss our experience of the paper catching the attention of the mainstream media (the title is from the Daily Mail) and, if time, some of the wider implications.
