A volcanic area in Naples, Italy is starting to show signs of reawakening.
Scientists have found a massive lake 15 kilometers beneath a dormant volcano in Bolivia. According to the researchers, the discovery could explain why and how volcanoes erupt.
Iceland is drilling into the Earth to tap renewable energy from liquid magma. This new energy source could reach temperatures of 400 to 1,000 degrees Celsius.
New boiling rivers, fumes and steams may suggest that the fericious super volcano might erupt this year and if it happens it can wipe out two thirds of the United States.
While it's long been thought that sudden volcano eruptions happen because the magma below the mountain was collecting energy over decades or hundreds of years, a new study says things happen over a much shorter period.
Mineral clues hidden within ancient molten rocks suggest life on the planet arose 300 million years ahead of previous estimates. This changes the way scientists view the Earth following its formation 4.5 billion years ago.
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.
Japan, the North Island of New Zealand, and Kamchatka, Russia are some of the places on earth where geysers spew and hot, algae-hued water spills onto the ground. Yellowstone's Mammoth Hot Springs is forming some new, small terraces.
Within 10 months of new magma flowing into the base of the volcano beneath Yellowstone National Park, some type of eruption might occur. When magma flows, here is our stopwatch, say researchers.
A massive magma reservoir has been discovered 12 to 28 miles beneath the Yellowstone supervolcano, and it is 4.4 times larger than the shallower, long-known magma chamber, according to new research.
Magma from Indonesia's mega eruption, which occurred 74,000 years ago, built up over millions of years thanks to the formation of magma pancakes within the Earth's crust, new research shows.
