Nature Live Online: The Restless Giants

From violent eruptions to breathtaking lava flows, volcanoes are found across the globe and come in many different varieties.

But what causes one volcano to explode and another to erupt more gently? How do they form and why are they found in certain places?

Join Museum researcher Chiara Maria Petrone to find out more about volcanoes and the challenges of exploring them in the field.

Once aired, you can rewatch this talk and any others on our Nature Live playlist on YouTube.

The Museum is closed but our work continues

As a charity we need your help. With our doors closed, we're losing vital income. We're doing everything we can to continue to connect people to nature by bringing the Museum to you through inspiring stories and educational activities. 

So if you could help us with a donation - no matter the size - we'd greatly appreciate it. Thank you.
