The science of volcanic prediction just got a boost with news that a "quiet period" offers a strong hint that an eruption is about to happen.
Managing the Earth’s environment based on predicted outcomes can be tricky and preventative measures often backfire. Researchers suggest taking an adaptive management approach.
Scientists discovered the world's longest known chain of continental volcanoes. It spans 2,000 kilometers across Australia, from Whitsundays in North Queensland to Melbourne in central Victoria.
Researchers simulating volcanic eruptions in a laboratory discovered that more accurate forecasts could be made by knowing how diverse the magma was.
