We spoke with science writer Kate Greene about her experiences on a 4-month-long Mars analog mission.
The discovery of large freshwater reservoirs off Hawaii suggests that other volcanic islands may have similar resources, which could help meet water demands amid population growth and climate change.
One of the world’s best monitored and most active volcanos still has secrets to yield, and researchers are turning to vapor bubbles trapped in melt inclusions to find them.
Television programming reaches broad, diverse audiences, but scientists must help tell their own stories and speak to the communities in which they live.
At Kīlauea Volcano, scientists are using unoccupied aircraft to monitor the new water lake, a possible harbinger of explosive activity, that formed after the volcano’s 2018 eruption.
Large-volume volcanic eruptions can create instabilities in the ground above magma chambers, leading to massive collapses and telltale calderas.
Thanks to some crucial calibrations, the world’s biggest solar telescope will have a clearer view of the Sun.
Seismic activity during the eruption of Kīlauea damaged the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory beyond repair. Now officials are looking for a new site.
A new study sheds light on how magma erodes the conduit it flows through.
Volcanologists say it’s too soon to know whether the sudden drop in activity signals the end of the eruption or just a pause.
