Kawah Ijen is located on the island of Java in Indonesia. When it “erupts” it doesn’t send lava running down its slopes. Instead, it emits an electric-blue fire that’s captivating at nighttime.
Researchers from the University of Miami (UM) and Atmospheric Science have found a large magma chamber right below the world's most active volcano, located in the deeper parts of Kilauea.
It turns out that the volcanic mantle plume of the Galapagos Islands isn't where scientists originally thought. Using seismic waves penetrating to a depth of nearly 200 miles, they've found an anomaly that reveals that the volcanic plume is somewhere else entirely.
Scientists have shed new light on volcanic activity. They found the factors behind determining the frequency and magnitude of volcanic phenomena, which could help predict and better understand eruptions in the future.
There are volcanoes and then there are supervolcanoes. Now, scientists have uncovered evidence of some of the largest and most explosive eruptions in Utah, revealing a bit more about that past history of our planet.
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.
