Scientists are using seismic noise interferometry to predict volcanic eruptions. Can these “volcanic whispers” help prevent future ruin?
Watch Freeriders Ski and Snowboard on an Active Volcano
“After they trekked up the ashy ridge to the exploding crater at the top, Victor briefly used his snowboard as a shield against flying rocks. Lightning flashed in the volcanic clouds. Just as they’re conferring about when to push off and ride back down the ash, away from the furious white cloud, they hear an explosive sound.”
Volcanic “Whispers” Tell Scientists When An Eruption Is About To Happen
“Volcanologists have spent at least two millennia working on this most frustrating of conundrums, and they have certainly found a few warning signs of impending eruptions. As a new study in Science Advances has revealed, volcanoes may also be letting out “whispers” that indicate when they’re about to erupt.”
Meteorite Reveals Mars Had Active Volcanoes Two Billion Years Ago
“A new analysis of a half-pound meteorite from Mars shows that the Red Planet was volcanically active as far back as two billion years ago, making Mars home to not only the biggest volcanoes in the solar system, but the most long-lived ones as well.”
