Wauthier awarded NSF CAREER award to investigate volcanic flank instability


Christelle Wauthier, associate professor of geosciences in the College of Earth and Mineral Sciences, received a Faculty Early Career Development Program (CAREER) Award from the National Science Foundation to develop numerical models to characterize volcanic flank instability processes.

Massive collapse of volcanic flanks are among the largest mass-wasting events on the planet and can evolve into energetic lateral blasts and spawn dangerous tsunamis. Despite these potential hazards, the underlying processes remain poorly constrained and understood, according to Wauthier. read more
