Latest Prediction of volcanic activity Stories
Volcanologists from the University of Liverpool have discovered how lava dome volcanoes erupt. This could help develop methods on predicting how volcanoes will act.
One of the world’s most active volcanoes showed its ugly side this weekend, erupting and producing an ash cloud that spread out across one southern Japanese city.
A new collaborative project called FutureVolc is aimed at trying to improve monitoring of Iceland's volcanoes with newly developed up-to-date sensory equipment.
More than a week after Alaska’s Cleveland volcano began erupting, sending ash clouds 15,000 feet into the air, another Alaskan mountaintop began rearing its ugly head. The Pavlof volcano, which sits about 350 miles northeast of Cleveland, showed signs on Monday that it was on the verge of eruption.
Recognizing well-established patterns of pre-eruption unrest in monitoring data is vital in volcanic eruption forecasting. To develop better monitoring procedures, however, understanding volcanic eruptions that deviate from these patterns is crucial as well.
In a new report published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, two scientists showed they may now be able to detect signs of an impending volcanic eruption by analyzing satellite imagery.
About 50 miles underground, there is a deep connection between two of Earth's most notable volcanoes, Hawaii's Mauna Loa and Kilauea, that could explain some of their enigmatic behavior.
A team of scientists that last year created waves by correctly forecasting the 2011 eruption of Axial Seamount years in advance now says that the undersea volcano located some 250 miles off the Oregon coast gave off clear signals just hours before its impending eruption.
Volcanoes capable of super-eruptions that could be catastrophic for civilizations have short fuses, according to new research conducted at Vanderbilt University.
By studying crystals formed in volcanic rock, experts may be able to predict an impending eruption up to a year in advance, researchers from the University of Bristol have discovered.
Volcanology is the study of volcanoes, magma, lava, and related geological, geochemical, and geophysical phenomena. The term volcanology comes from the Latin word Vulcan. Vulcan is the ancient Roman god of fire. A volcanologist is a person who studies the creation of volcanoes, and their current and historic eruptions. Volcanologists frequently visit volcanoes, particularly active ones, to observe volcanic eruptions, collect eruptive products including samples of tephra, lava, and rock....
