Latest Magma Stories
The contours of the Earth's crust are influenced by the high temperatures deep within the Earth's mantle, according to a new study published in Science.

New research by UC Davis and Oregon State University may soon lead to new forecasts into how soon volcanoes are ready to erupt. The team found that in order for an eruption to occur, molten rock under the volcano must be sufficiently mobile.
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.
Updated products set to ship by the end of February.
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.
The temperature of the Earth’s mantle during the Archean eon some four billion years ago was significantly higher than it is today, causing the crust to become unstable and drip back down into the mantle, according to research published this month in Nature Geoscience.
A University of Houston (UH) geoscientist and his colleagues are revealing new discoveries about the Earth's development, following a major international expedition that recovered the first-ever drill core from the lower crust of the Pacific Ocean.
Magma hires industry veteran Jim Medeiros to expand presence in U.S.
Scoria is a term used by geologists to describe an igneous rock containing many gas bubbles, or vesicules. Scoria forms when magma rich in dissolved gases is vented. As the magma encounters lower pressures, the gasses are able to escape and form bubbles. These bubbles are trapped when the magma cools and solidifies. Volcanic cones of scoria can be left behind after eruptions, usually forming mountains with a crater at the summit. An example is Mount Wellington, Auckland in New Zealand....
