Katharine Solada

P-mag Lab Manager, CEOAS


B.A., Geology, Miami University, Oxford, OH (2014)
M.S., Geology, Ocean, Earth, and Atmospheric Sciences, Oregon State University (2018)

Research Interests:

I am interested in all things volcanic, specifically volcanic hazards, resurgence, caldera evolution, supereruptions, volcanic tremor, magma degassing, and paleomagnetism. For my Masters I used paleomagnetic secular variation and C-14 dating to study the history of resurgence at Toba Caldera using uplifted lake sediments on Samosir Island.

Other Interests:

You can find me outside climbing on some rocks.
