Understanding buried, hidden zones of structural weaknesses within Indonesia’s Merapi volcano can help to substantially advance our ability to predict catastrophic dome failures.
The discovery, gleaned from observations of volcanoes on four continents, could help constrain models of volcanic eruptions.
Extended periods of volcanism known as flood basalt eruptions lead to volcanic winters, which are often followed by an extended period of warming. But it was more than just carbon dioxide that warmed the globe.
Data from deep wells and a Bayesian modeling framework shed new light on one of Iceland’s valuable geothermal reservoirs.
Scientists studying South Pacific earthquakes suggest that an ultralow-velocity zone at the core-mantle boundary may be a remnant of a molten early Earth.
High-resolution seismic models of the Nova Scotia margin reveal a role for magmatism in continental breakup, even at magma-poor sections of the eastern North American margin.
Una nueva investigación encuentra que Actinobacteria en cuevas de lava fijan carbón y sobreviven independientemente de aportes superficiales, ofreciendo una nueva perspectiva en la investigación de la vida fuera de la Tierra.
By analyzing lava samples, researchers show how chemical processes that occur during magma’s ascent to the surface may contribute to a volcano’s eruptible state.
Una vez que una erupción volcánica masiva termina, el sistema subyacente puede mantenerse activo por miles de años. Una nueva investigación vislumbra cómo funcionan los ciclos de super erupciones.
Once a massive volcanic eruption is finished, the underlying system can remain active for thousands of years. New research illuminates how supereruption cycles work.
