Latest Magma Stories
Phase transitions in liquid magmas at the pressure and temperature levels that exist deep within Earth-like planets could play a role in the formation of new worlds.
New research suggests that eruptions at some of Earth's largest volcanoes could be predicted decades before the event actually occurs, potentially making it easier for experts to monitor danger zones and conduct pre-emptive evacuations to keep residents out of harm's way.
In California's Death Valley, death is looking just a bit closer. Geologists have determined that the half-mile-wide Ubehebe Crater, formed by a prehistoric volcanic explosion, was created far more recently than previously thought—and that conditions for a sequel may exist today.
Kimberlites are magmatic rocks that form deep in the Earth’s interior and are brought to the surface by volcanic eruptions.
The "super-eruption" of a major volcanic system occurs about every 100,000 years and is considered one of the most catastrophic natural events on Earth, yet scientists have long been unsure about what triggers these violent explosions.
Magma, an innovative and visionary developer of PCI Express expansion and connectivity products, announced plans to support the all-new Thunderboltâ„¢ technology, developed by Intel® and brought to market in collaboration with Apple®.
A team of NASA-funded researchers has measured water from the moon that shows some parts of the lunar mantle have as much water as the Earthâ€™s upper mantle.
VANCOUVER, May 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - Magma Energy Corp.
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....
