A new study sheds light on how magma erodes the conduit it flows through.
Samples from Kīlauea volcano’s extraordinary eruption that began last May could offer important insights into the behavior of volcanoes and the underlying mantle.
The Kīlauea eruption earlier this year unleashed a media bonanza. Here are nine tips about how to debunk geohazard misinformation in real time from a scientist frequently tapped for expert comments.
Volcanologists say it’s too soon to know whether the sudden drop in activity signals the end of the eruption or just a pause.
From burying communities to building new land, this historic eruption is changing the landscape of Hawai‘i Island.
Meanwhile, some scientists say that the 35-year eruption from the Pu‘u Ō‘ō vent has ended and that the flows since 3 May are a new eruption. Others take issue with this view.
Scientists say the dramatic increase in flows is likely due to the arrival of younger, hotter magma in the system.
Sinking magma levels and rockfalls prompt warnings, flight restrictions, and the shutdown of Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park.
Volcano seismic waves produce distinct tremor patterns, or "fingerprints," shared by different kinds of volcanoes.
Geophysicists used unique seismic signatures to track the cyclic rise and fall of lava inside Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park's Overlook crater.
