Volcanology and Petrology

Volcanology and Petrology is a research group at the Instituto de Investigaciones en Estratigrafía (IIES) leads by Hugo Murcia since 2015, and currently with the collaboration of Susana Osorio. Our experience has enabled training students in different levels such as undergraduate, master and PhD, as well as offer research internships and postdoctoral research stays. Based on this area, we create academic and research projects, develop publications, attend national and international events, and annually offer the International Volcanology Field course. Our interests do not have limits, although currently our main projects are framed in the active volcanism/magmatism as well as the Miocene volcanism/magmatism in the country.
