Latest Magma chamber Stories
A new, detailed image of the volcanic plumbing beneath Mt. Rainier has been created by a group of researchers from the University of Utah, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, the College of New Jersey and the University of Bergen, Norway.
A team of researchers have discovered a large magma chamber deep under the most active volcano in the world. It is the first time research has been able to confirm such a discovery in Kilauea's depths.
One team of researchers has uncovered the factors that determine the frequency and magnitude of volcanic activity, while another has identified the triggers for the rare and explosive eruptions experienced by supervolcanoes, according to studies currently appearing in the advanced online edition of the journal Nature Geoscience.
A new study, led by Columbia University's Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, suggests the 1960's eruption of Costa Rica's largest stratovolcano was triggered by magma rising from the mantle over a few short months, rather than thousands of years or more, as many scientists have thought.
Scientists have identified a trigger for the largest explosive volcanic eruptions on Earth, according to a report published in the journal Scientific Reports.

The Soufriere Hills Volcano on Montserrat erupted in 1995, and an international team of researchers has studied this volcano from land and sea since then to understand the workings of andesite volcanos more completely.
A prominent vulcanologist said on Monday that Europe's largest undersea volcano could disintegrate and unleash a tsunami that would engulf southern Italy "at any time."
Researchers from The University of British Columbia and McGill University have simulated in the lab the process that can turn ordinary volcanic eruptions into so-called â€œsupervolcanoes.â€
Yellowstone National Park, once the site of a giant volcano, has begun swelling up, possibly because molten rock is accumulating beneath the surface, scientists report.
