The course is offered every summer both in Katmai National Park, Alaska, site of the largest eruption on Earth of the 20th century and on one of active volcanoes of Kamchatka, e.g. Mutnovsky and Gorely, Tolbachik, and Karymsky. Students explore and discuss the full range of phenomena that constitutes volcanoes, using some of the best examples in the world. The course is co-taught at both the undergraduate and graduate level by Pavel Izbekov of UAF, with assistance by Taryn Lopez for larger classes, as well as by guest scientists from Russia, the US, and Japan.
