Is a Russian peninsula really part of North America?
For many years geologists have harbored a belief that the Kamchatka Peninsula, shrouded in mystery and secrecy on Russia's east coast, actually sits on the same tectonic plate as the mainland United States, Canada and Mexico. View News Article (2006-05-03)

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)

The Brief but Violent Life of Monogenetic Volcanoes
A new study in the journal Geology is shedding light on the brief but violent lives of maar-diatreme volcanoes, which erupt when magma and water meet in an explosive marriage below the surface of the earth. View News Article (2012-10-04)

Tornado-like rotation is key to understanding volcanic plumes

Volcanic Ash Research Shows How Plumes End up in the Jet Stream
A University at Buffalo volcanologist, an expert in volcanic ash cloud transport, published a paper recently showing how the jet stream -- the area in the atmosphere that pilots prefer to fly in -- also seems to be the area most likely to be impacted by plumes from volcanic ash.  View News Article (2010-04-20)

New, hands-on science demos teach young students how volcanoes 'blow their tops,' spew lava
A popular volcano demonstration in grade school science class rivets students' attention as it spews bubbly liquid over a tabletop, but it comes up short in explaining all the ways that volcanoes form and evolve. View News Article (2006-10-25)

Some volcanoes 'scream' at ever-higher pitches until they blow their tops
It is not unusual for swarms of small earthquakes to precede a volcanic eruption. They can reach a point of such rapid succession that they create a signal called harmonic tremor that resembles sound made by various types of musical instruments, though at frequencies much lower than humans can hear. View News Article (2013-07-15)
