Mount Sourabaya in the isolated region of South Atlantic Ocean has been silent for 60 years. But it erupted twice in the last few weeks, and if not for NASA satellites, the eruption would have gone unnoticed.
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.
NASA recently found minerals hidden under the ice sheets on the surface of Mars which suggests that there were volcanic eruptions beneath the surface billions of years ago.
In an extremely rare scientific collaboration between North Korea, U.S. and U.K., researchers discovered that Mt. Paektu, one of the three "spirited" mountains of Koreans, has a soft spot in its core.
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.
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.
The eruption of Ecuador's Cotopaxi Volcano has put Quito rocket frogs at risk of extinction. To help scientists save these iconic frogs, the Amphibian Survival Alliance has launched an adopt-a-tadpole campaign.
Following the major eruption of Iceland's Bardarbunga volcano, researchers have shown how sulfur aerosols emitted into the atmosphere impact cloud formation by creating creating smaller water droplets that reflect more light.
Around 73,000 years ago, the towering predecessor of the Fogo volcano - one of the most active in the world - collapsed. As a result, a unbelievably massive tsunami rippled across the Atlantic Ocean, washing its destructive force over islands that now boast over 250,000 human residents. Experts now wonder if such a disaster is more common than we'd like.
Dinosaur extinction was caused by an asteroid impact 66 million years ago that also triggered a series of volcanic eruptions, say researchers from the University of California Berkeley.
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.
Researchers suggest that helium isotopes found during a ten-year period leading up to the 2014 Mount Ontake eruption in central Japan, may be helpful in future risk management and disaster mitigation.
Ecuador is now officially in a state of emergency with an estimated 400 people already evacuated from a potential disaster zone south of the country's capital. In a Saturday address, Ecuador's President Rafael Correa explained that this is a precautionary action as the massive Cotopaxi volcano grows increasingly restless.
