'Crystal clocks' help with volcanic hazard management and better forecasting volcanic eruptions

Researchers from Cambridge University have devised a way to calculate the duration of the magma which can be stored in the deepest portion of the volcanic systems. They have accomplished this by making use of volcanic minerals known as 'crystal clocks'. This...

Drilling into magma reservoirs to improve volcano forecasts

The roots of volcanoes remain enigmatic, largely because geophysical and petrological models remain rudimentary. Scientific drilling and exploration can help. When it comes to forecasting eruptions, volcano observatories rely mostly on real-time signals from...

New method for predicting volcanic eruptions yields promising results

A group of UK scientists from the Royal Holloway, University of London, has developed a new method to determine which conditions are needed to facilitate a volcano eruption. Researchers have used the data collected during eruptions of the Santorini volcano to...

Scientists move closer to predicting volcano hazard

UK and Russian scientists say they are a step closer to predicting how dangerous a volcano is after developing a method that lets them figure out how individual volcanoes are 'plumbed'.The new approach means researchers need only analyse a single chunk of rock f
