Sinking magma levels and rockfalls prompt warnings, flight restrictions, and the shutdown of Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park.
American Geophysical Union Chapman Conference: Merging Geophysical, Petrochronologic, and Modeling Perspectives of Large Silicic Magma Systems; Quinamavida, Chile, 7–12 January 2018
Researchers use trial and error to develop a technique to create volcanic lava bombs.
Sparse seismic data can accurately predict volcanic eruptions.
Water pressure on mid-ocean ridges may affect magma production kilometers beneath the ocean floor.
How the very slow moving African Continent, with a lithosphere of quite varied age elements and thickness, has responded to ongoing asthenospheric modification.
New advances in seismic investigations suggest links in plumbing between nearby magma volcanoes and a mud-erupting system that has been spewing for more than a decade.
Jupiter’s moon Io is known for its lava fountains and roiling lava lakes, but scientists had never seen such an intense eruption in their data until now.
The roots of volcanoes remain enigmatic, largely because geophysical and petrological models remain rudimentary. Scientific drilling and exploration can help.
An artist’s impulse to recreate natural landscapes leads to fiery scientific explorations that elucidate the behavior of erupting lava and the solid shapes it becomes.
