Evelyn Mervine at Arenal Volcano

From a safe perch

MIT/WHOI Joint Program student Evelyn Mervine paused to take in the beauty of Arenal Volcano during a June 2008 field study tour in Costa Rica. The pyroclastic flow from Arenal  — the country’s most continuously active volcano — is also known as a nuée ardent, which means "glowing cloud.” The field trip wrapped up the spring WHOI Geodynamics Seminar Series, a semester of weekly seminars given by scientists invited from many research institutions on cutting-edge research on a particular earth sciences topic.
