Iron Volcanoes on Some Asteroids May Have Ejected Molten Metal  SPACE.COM · 2 weeks
The solar system is full of volcanoes — but scientists may have just identified an entirely new type of volcanic activity. more
Driving force of volcanic super-hazards uncovered  PHYS.ORG · 2 weeks
Massey volcanologists have discovered the driving force behind superheated gas-and-ash clouds from volcanic eruptions, which may help save lives and infrastructure around the globe. more
Iron volcanoes may have erupted on metal asteroids  PHYS.ORG · 2 weeks
Metallic asteroids are thought to have started out as blobs of molten iron floating in space. As if that's not strange enough, scientists now think that as the metal cooled and solidified,... more
Metal asteroids may have once had iron-spewing volcanoes  SCIENCE-NEWS · 3 weeks
Two groups of scientists introduce the idea of “ferrovolcanism,” or iron volcanoes, that could have occurred on metal asteroids like Psyche. more
Sun, moon and sea as part of a 'seismic probe'  PHYS.ORG · 3 weeks
Looking inside the Earth requires a signal that can penetrate rocks, minerals and other opaque material. Seismic waves represent such a signal. By recording them with a seismometer,... more
Mexico raises alert level as volcano spews ash, lava  PHYS.ORG · 3 weeks
Mexico raised the warning level for the Popocatepetl volcano to one step shy of a red alert Thursday, after it repeatedly spewed ash, smoke and lava into the air. more
The solid Earth breathes  PHYS.ORG · 4 weeks
The solid Earth breathes as volcanoes "exhale" gases like carbon dioxide (CO2)—which are essential in regulating global climate—while carbon ultimately from CO2 returns into the deep Earth when oceanic tectonic plates are forced to descend into the mantle at subduction... more
