New Volcanic Revelations May Help Predict When Eruptions Will Occur
2014-05-05 09:10:30

[ Watch the Video: New Insight May Help Predict Volcanic Eruption Behavior ] Gerard LeBlond for redorbit.com - Your Universe Online Volcanologists from the University of Liverpool have discovered how lava dome volcanoes erupt. This could help develop methods on predicting how volcanoes will act. The process of frictional melting determines how the volcano will erupt. The speed of the lava rise and how much friction it creates is determined by this process. Within the lava dome the...

Man-made quakes need to be included in seismic hazard planning say experts Oil and gas development activities, including underground disposal of wastewater and hydraulic fracturing, may induce earthquakes by changing the state of stress on existing faults to the point of failure. Earthquakes from wastewater disposal may be triggered at tens of kilometers from the wellbore, which is a greater range than previously thought, according to research to be presented today at the annual meeting of...
