A new volcano has been discovered a kilometer under the ice sheet of West Antarctica. The volcano is undergoing slow combustion and the researchers think the heat generated by these volcanoes will trigger the melting of Antarctic ice sheets.
The world's first man-made ash cloud has been created by a team led by airline easyJet and planemaker Airbus to test how passenger aircraft cope with volcanic blasts such as the 2010 Icelandic eruption.
Europe's most active and tallest volcano 'Mount Etna' erupted on Saturday, emitting huge plume of ash and putting up a brilliant air show with its bright lava.
Mexico City residents are still experiencing the harsh repercussions from a deadly volcano.
Astronauts aboard the International Space Station (ISS) photographed this striking view of Pavlof Volcano on May 18, 2013. The oblique perspective from the ISS reveals the three dimensional structure of the ash plume, which is often obscured by the top-down view of most remote sensing satellites.
The real land of fire and ice is Alaska. The state's Pavlof Volcano has been spewing ash and lava since last week. Now, the volcano has forced regional flight cancellations and has even dusted nearby communities with ash.
Two volcanoes in Alaska are at risk of exploding with little to no warning. After lava flowed from the two volcanoes yesterday (Tuesday), authorities placed both locations on the second-highest alert levels.
Alaska's remote Cleveland Volcano is experiencing a continuous low-level eruption after it exploded early Saturday morning.
Because oceanic crust sinks at certain points deep into Earth's mantle, scientists have long assumed that lava erupting from some oceanic volcanoes should contain materials from the early Earth's crust. But any prove of this phenomenon was missing -- until now.
Yellowstone has the world's largest collection of geysers, and it has the underground plumbing to prove it. Scientists have announced that the volcanic activity beneath the National Park's surface may be far bigger and better connected than once thought.
The volcanoes on Jupiter's moon, Io, are in the wrong place, baffling researchers at NASA.
