Exhaling Earth: Scientists closer to forecasting volcanic eruptions

(Deep Carbon Observatory) On average, 40 volcanoes on land erupt into the atmosphere each month, while scores of others erupt into the ocean. A new time-lapse animation uniting volcanoes, earthquakes, and gaseous emissions reveals the large, rigid plates that make the outermost shell of Earth and suggests the immense heat and energy beneath seeking to escape. Recent discoveries by Deep Carbon Observatory scientists are laying the foundation for improved volcanic eruption forecasts by measuring volcanic emissions.
