Curator's Coffee -- The Volcano State: Recent Research on New Mexico's World-cla
Hear about the latest research on New Mexico's world-class volcanoes. And take a walk through the Museum's volcano to hear stories about how it was built and what types of volcanoes it was designed to represent.
Larry Crumpler's current research is divided between the study of young volcanic terrains in the southwest and the geology of Mars. He has been a vocal advocate for the importance of volcanoes in New Mexico's landscape through research papers and popular articles, including the recently published Telling New Mexico: A New History, several video productions, and other regional books and periodicals. He is currently a member of a team of volcanologists, funded by the Smithsonian and NASA, studying the youngest lava flow in New Mexico. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Arizona in Planetary Sciences and M.S. from the University of New Mexico in Geology, and worked at Brown University as a research scientist for 12 years. He supports his affiliation with the Museum through his own research grants.
