Connecting people and geology on volcanoes
In October 2011, heavy rainfall poured down the sides of El Salvador's San Vicente Volcano, nearly four feet of water in 12 days. Coffee plantation employees, working high up on the volcano's slope began noticing surface cracks forming on steep slopes and in coffee plantations.  View News Article (2015-08-03)

New insight may help predict volcanic eruption behavior
A new discovery in the study of how lava dome volcanoes erupt may help in the development of methods to predict how a volcanic eruption will behave, say scientists at the University of Liverpool. View News Article (2014-05-05)

Taking the 'pulse' of volcanoes using satellite images
A new study by scientists at the University of Miami (UM) Rosenstiel School of Marine & Atmospheric Science uses Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR) data to investigate deformation prior to the eruption of active volcanoes in Indonesia's west Sunda arc. View News Article (2012-11-06)

Deep origins to the behavior of Hawaiian volcanoes
Kīlauea volcano, on the Big Island of Hawai'i, typically has effusive eruptions, wherein magma flows to create ropy pāhoehoe lava, for example. View News Article (2014-04-30)

Study finds 'frictional heat' as a new trigger for explosive volcanic eruptions
A new study into magma ascent by geoscientists at the University of Liverpool has found that temperature may be more important than pressure in generating gas bubbles which trigger explosive volcanic eruptions. View News Article (2016-01-05)
