Volcano-glacier dynamics of the Mt Meager Volcanic complexe, BC, Canada

We are studying the dynamics at play where these two extremes, volcanoes and glaciers, meet. That incorporates looking at how the heat from the volcano has an effect on the glacier and how changes in glacier mass affect slope stability around the volcano and possibly the volcanic activity itself. We intend to use various geophysical methods to delineate these processes that are ongoing within the system
