Analysis makes better predictions of eruptions possible

CD Analysis makes better predictions of eruptions possible

"Violent volcanic eruptions could soon be predicted with greater accuracy following a study into how molten magma can suddenly explode from underground reservoirs.

Scientists have analysed the chemical and physical changes in the magma of two active volcanoes and believe that the analysis may soon be used to make better predictions of an impending eruption.

The new insights may be used in conjunction with existing methods of monitoring active volcanoes to produce better early-warning systems to evacuate people living in the fallout area of a nearby volcano."
