Europlanet Webinar: Volcanism and Mars

Europlanet Webinar: Volcanism and Mars

Monday 13th May at 13:00 BST / 14: 00 CEST with Dr Petr Brož, Researcher in the Department of Geodynamics at the Institute of Geophysics of the Czech Academy of Sciences and EPEC Outreach Working Group Chair.

Mars is a terrestrial planet whose surface was significantly modified by the volcanic activity throughout its history. The volcanism left many evidences in the form of variously sized volcanoes, endless lava fields, or volcanic rocks widely spread over the surface. In this webinar, Petr will present evidence of the volcanic history of Mars and explain the importance of volcanism on the evolution of this planet.

There are two ways to watch the webinar:

We highly recommend using the Zoom app, especially if you have multiple viewers, are projecting the webinar, etc.

Dr Petr Brož has been a researcher at the Department of Geodynamics, Czech Academy of Sciences since 2010, where he focuses on volcanism across the Solar system. His main interest is kilometer-sized cones formed by explosive volcanic activity caused by magma degassing and water/magma interactions on the surface of Mars. His research is based on the analysis of the remote sensing data from morphological and morphometrical points of view. During his PhD at Charles University, Prague, he completed internships at the DLR (Germany) and the Open University (UK). He has been awarded the Nadání Josefa, Marie a Zdenky Hlávkových prize and the Otto Wichterle Award, both from the Czech Academy of Sciences. we has also won the SCIAP 2016 prize with Dr. Matěj Machek for new and inspirative outreach model of plate tectonics. Dr. Brož is dedicated to public outreach in order to help popularize geosciences in the context of solar system exploration.
