Tulane Student Hopes Research Will Lead to Protection From Volcanos, Earthquakes

Tulane University

East Africa may be a long way from the Crescent City but it is top of mind for Tulane PhD student Sarah Oliva, who is studying data from volcanoes and earthquakes in that region. Her goal is a better understanding of how a 3,000-kilometer long deep valley– the East African rift system— formed. Ultimately, she hopes her research will enable her to work with scientists and help governments protect residents living near the rift.

Volcanic Carbon Dioxide Drove Ancient Global Warming Event

University of Southampton

New research, led by the University of Southampton and involving a team of international scientists, suggests that an extreme global warming event 56 million years ago was driven by massive CO2 emissions from volcanoes, during the formation of the North Atlantic Ocean.

Innovative Way to Understand Nature of an Entire Tiny Particle

University of New Hampshire

New research from the University of New Hampshire has led to the development of a novel technique to determine the surface area and volume of small particles, the size of a grain of sand or smaller. Due to their tiny size, irregular shape and limited viewing angle, commonly used microscopic imaging techniques cannot always capture the whole object’s shape often leaving out valuable information that can be important in numerous areas of science, engineering and medicine.

Forget the Red Hot Blob: Volcanic Zircon Crystals Give a New View of Magma

Michigan Technological University

The classic red teardrop of magma underneath a volcano peak is too simplistic. Magma chambers are chemically and physically complex structures that new evidence, published this week in Science, suggests may be cooler and more solid than expected.

Death by Volcano?

Washington University in St. Louis

The discovery of anomalously high levels of mercury in rocks from the Ordivician geological period has led to a new interpretation of the ensuing mass extinction. A sequence of disturbances may have led to catastrophic cooling by reflective sulfate aerosols injected into the atmosphere by massive volcanism. The finding is important since aerosol cooling is under consideration as a way to temper global warming.

How X-Rays Helped to Solve Mystery of Floating Rocks

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

Experiments at Berkeley Lab’s Advanced Light Source have helped scientists to solve a mystery of why some rocks can float for years in the ocean, traveling thousands of miles before sinking.

Eruptions Examiner

University of Iowa

University of Iowa volcanologist Ingrid Ukstins spent two weeks collecting samples from Yasur, a continuously erupting volcano on Tanna, an island in the remote South Pacific archipelago of Vanuatu, to study its chemical composition and determine how the gasses it produces may be affecting people who live nearby.
