NASA is learning more and more about Pluto as New Horizons continues to beam back data to Earth after its historic flyby. Now, researchers are getting a closer look at what appear to be icy mountains on the dwarf planet.
What causes a supervolcano to finally blow its top? Scientists have taken a closer look at these features, and have found that these massive magma chambers may erupt when the roof above them cracks.
Scientists have found a unique volcanic process taking place somewhere unexpected: the moon.
It turns out that major volcanic eruptions don't just have an effect on Earth's atmosphere; they also may impact the world's water. Scientists have found that volcanic eruptions affect the flow of the world's major rivers.
Scientists may have uncovered the signs of an ancient, mega-tsunami that could foretell a modern hazard.
It turns out that the asteroid wasn't the only thing that did in the dinosaurs.
Scientists have taken a closer look at a volcanic eruption that occurred in Iceland and have found that the eruption emitted on average three times as much of a toxic gas as all European industry combined.
United States Geological Survey (USGS) scientists at the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory on the Big Island have raised the alert level from normal to advisory based on signs of unrest following a prolonged period of seismic activity.
Scientists have discovered the world's longest known chain of continental volcanoes
Could Io have an underground magma ocean? Tides flowing in a subsurface ocean of molten rock could explain why Jupiter's moon appears to have its volcanoes in the "wrong" place, according to a new study.
Earth may have undergone its first ever CT scan. Researchers have used seismic waves from large earthquakes to map the Earth's interior to better understand its volcanic processes.
