Can heat cause volcanic eruptions?
Study finds ‘frictional heat’ as a new trigger for explosive volcanic eruptions. Summary: Temperature may be more important than pressure in generating gas bubbles which trigger explosive volcanic eruptions, a new study into magma ascent has found.
Can a volcano stop global warming?
“The period between successive large volcanic eruptions ranges from 3–130 years,” the researchers found. The eruption of Mt Pinatubo in 1991 is the latest such example. It cooled the global surface temperature in the Northern Hemisphere by a little over 0.5°C for over a year.
Are volcanoes becoming more active?
The Global Volcanism Program does not see any evidence that volcanic activity is actually increasing. Data about eruptions has been compiled by the Smithsonian since 1968 in order to provide context for global volcanism.
