The role of a volcanologist

A volcanologist studies the impact of volcanoes on the atmosphere and our planet as a whole. They often work to try to understand how to make better predictions of eruptions and minimise the effects on people arising from them. They may use computer modelling or satellite imagery and often work on or around volcanoes taking measurements.
