Mar. 21, 2016 — The best way to figure out how something is made is to take it apart and put it back together again. That is what researchers have focused on in order to understand active volcanoes in ... read more

Aviation and Volcanic Ash: Don't Build Model on Sand

Mar. 14, 2016 — Volcanic ash can damage jet engines, and volcanologists have developed a new empirical model for assessment of the risk. Their results show that tests using sand do not reflect the behavior of ash in ... read more

Mar. 7, 2016 — A new study sheds light on what happens when a supervolcano erupts, providing insight on how rivers of hot ash and gas called pyroclastic flows manage to travel huge distances of over 100 miles ... read more

Feb. 26, 2016 — On Nov. 20 2013, the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force discovered a small islet near Nishinoshima volcano, Ogasawara Islands, Japan. The exact date of the initial eruption that spawned the islet is ... read more

Feb. 10, 2016 — A geologic event known as diking can cause strong earthquakes -- with a magnitude between 6 and 7, according to an international research team. Diking can occur all over the world but most often ... read more

Feb. 10, 2016 — Understanding the complex geological processes that form supervolcanoes could ultimately help geologists determine what triggers their eruptions. A new study using an advanced computer model casts ... read more

Feb. 10, 2016 — When water interacts with magma, it can dramatically increase the explosivity of the eruption. However, water in the eruption cloud can also increase the rate at which the particles aggregate into ... read more

Feb. 9, 2016 — Seismic, deformation, and gas activity (unrest) typically precedes volcanic eruptions. Tracking the changes of this activity with monitoring data makes it increasingly possible to successfully ... read more

Rapid Formation of Bubbles in Magma May Trigger Sudden Volcanic Eruptions

Feb. 1, 2016 — It has long been observed that some volcanoes erupt with little prior warning. Now, scientists have come up with an explanation behind these sudden eruptions that could change the way observers ... read more

Jan. 19, 2016 — Scientists are studying carbon emissions through fault systems in the East African Rift (EAR) in an effort to understand carbon emissions from Earth's interior and how it affects the ... read more

Evidence of Large Volcanic Activity in the Caribbean Uncovered

Jan. 14, 2016 — Scientists have uncovered evidence of a previously unknown large volcanic eruption in the Caribbean Sea. By studying ash layers, known as tephras, in marine sediments they identified an eruption that ... read more

Jan. 11, 2016 — A team of scientists is home after a month-long cruise in the eastern Mediterranean, but this was no vacation. The focus was the plumbing system of magma underneath the island of Santorini, formed by ... read more

Jan. 4, 2016 — Temperature may be more important than pressure in generating gas bubbles which trigger explosive volcanic eruptions, a new study into magma ascent has found. The study, which combined field ... read more

Traces of Islandic Volcanoes in Northeastern German Lake

Jan. 4, 2016 — Traces of volcanic ash originating from islandic volcanoes have been found in the sediments of Laker Tiefer See in the Nossentiner-Schwinzer Heide natural park in Germany. This allows researchers to ... read more
