Birkbeck Inspires: Understanding the volcano Mount Paektu

Venue: Online

This event has ended.

Birkbeck has launched a new programme, 'Birkbeck Inspires', a free online events, activities and resources programme designed to inspire learning, provoke thought, and entertain and excite curious minds.

Volcanoes do not respect international borders meaning eruptions in one country can have impacts across wide regions. James Hammond, Reader in Geophysics and Director of the Mount Paektu Research Centre will deliver a live talk on the mixture of diplomacy and science needed to understand the origins and hazards associated with Mount Paektu, a large volcano on the border of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (North Korea) and China. There will also be an opportunity for a question and answer session with James Hammond.

Follow Birkbeck, University of London, on Facebook for regular updates on the series and visit for content as its released as well as timings of future bookable live events.
