A new study from the University of British Columbia revealed that global warming brought about by climate change may counteract the cooling effect of volcanic eruption in the next century.
The workings of the internal structure of volcanoes have finally been observed for the first time. Using a unique eruption simulator, researchers at the Massey University looked at how the deadly volcanic flows, also known as pyroclastic flows, form.
Scientists have discovered that the 1991 Mount Pinatubo eruption, the largest volcanic eruption in the late 20th century, have hid signs of sea level rise and climate change from the world.
Astronomers discovered that Jupiter's moon Io has a collapsable atmosphere that depends on its position in relation with the sun.
A team of researchers has unlocked the secrets of LUCA, our oldest ancestor.
The record-breaking mega-eruption that lasted for 180 days has produced a rare caldera collapse, a geological phenomenon that happens only for a number of times in a century.
A waking volcano on the outskirts of Rome has the potential to erupt as violently as Mt. Vesuvius, the volcano that destroyed Pompeii.
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.
Researchers discovered a magma buildup 10 kilometers deep underneath the coastal town of Matata in New Zealand.
Beneath its beauty, there is a supervolcano underneath the Yellow Stone National Park and experts said it can wipe out half of the U.S. if it erupts. Studies differ as to when the eruption will take place, but one thing is for sure: it can cause millions of deaths and massive destruction.
Aerosol particles ejected into the air following volcanic eruptions can trigger rainfall shortages that ultimately alter river systems worldwide.
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.
An 1,800-year-long trend driven by volcanic activity was brought to an end by 19th-century, human-caused global warming. Recent studies of this phenomenon question the exact role that oceans play in climate change.
