New evidence suggests volcanoes caused biggest mass extinction ever

University of Cincinnati

Researchers say mercury buried in ancient rock provides the strongest evidence yet that volcanoes caused the biggest mass extinction in the history of the Earth.

Merged satellite, ground data may forecast volcanic eruptions

Cornell University

Cornell University postdoctoral researcher Kevin Reath has merged 17 years of satellite data on volcanoes with ground-based detail to form a model for state-of-the-art volcanic eruption prediction.

Precise Chronology Suggests Extreme Volcanism Contributed to Dinosaur Extinction

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory

Not by meteorite alone did the dinosaurs die off. Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory research scientist Kyle Samperton and colleagues present the most compelling evidence yet that massive volcanic eruptions in the Deccan Traps region of India contributed to the fall of the dinosaurs – also known as the end-Cretaceous mass extinction – approximately 66 million years ago.

Satellite images reveal interconnected plumbing system that caused Bali volcano to erupt

University of Bristol

A team of scientists, led by the University of Bristol, has used satellite technology provided by the European Space Agency (ESA) to uncover why the Agung volcano in Bali erupted in November 2017 after 50 years of dormancy.

Revising the history of big, climate-altering volcanic eruptions

University of Maryland, College Park

For all their destructive power, most volcanic eruptions are local events. Lava flows tend to reach only a few miles at most, while airborne ash and soot travel a little farther. But occasionally

Large volcanic eruption in Scotland may have contributed to prehistoric global warming

Uppsala University

Around 56 million years ago, global temperatures spiked. Researchers at Uppsala University and in the UK now show that a major explosive eruption from the Red Hills on the Isle of Skye may have been a contributing factor to the massive climate disturbance. Their findings have been published in the journal Scientific Reports.

URI scientists model Anak Krakatau volcano, tsunami to better prepare U.S. for future tsunamis

University of Rhode Island

The recent eruption of Anak Krakatau – which means “son of Krakatau” – is providing URI researchers Stephan Grilli and Steven Carey with a new opportunity to gain additional insights and create models that they hope will help the United States better prepare for future tsunamis.

Scientists brew lava and blow it up to better understand volcanoes

University at Buffalo

What happens when lava and water meet? Explosive experiments with manmade lava are exploring this question. This long-term, ongoing study published its first results on Dec. 10, and aims to shed light on the basic physics of lava-water interactions, which are common in nature but poorly understood.

New Model Improves Thermal Models Tying Metamorphic Rocks to Subduction Zones

Boise State University

The temperatures associated with the earth’s subduction zones have been historically miscalculated, which has major implications for our understanding of how the planet’s deadliest earthquakes and volcanic arcs are generated.

Smaller, More Frequent Eruptions Affect Volcanic Flare-Ups

Michigan Technological University

Eruption patterns in a New Zealand volcanic system reveal how the movement of magma rising through the crust leads to smaller, more frequent eruptions.
