WFS News:Falling sea level caused volcanoes to overflow

@WFS,World Fossil Society,Riffin T Sajeev,Russel T Sajeev Climate evolution shows some regularities, which can be traced throughout long periods of earth’s history. One of them is that the global average temperature and the carbon dioxide concentration in the atmosphere usually go hand-in-hand. To put it simple: If the temperatures decline, the CO2values also decrease and […]

WFS News: ‘Bulges’ in volcanoes could be used to predict eruptions

@WFS,World Fossil Society,Riffin T Sajeev,Russel T sajeev A team of researchers from the University of Cambridge have developed a new way of measuring the pressure inside volcanoes, and found that it can be a reliable indicator of future eruptions. Using a technique called ‘seismic noise interferometry’ combined with geophysical measurements, the researchers measured the energy […]

Insights into plate tectonics, the forces behind earthquakes, volcanoes

The Earth’s outer layer is made up of a series of moving, interacting plates whose motion at the surface generates earthquakes, creates volcanoes and builds mountains. Geoscientists have long sought to understand the plates’ fundamental properties and the mechanisms that cause them to move and drift, and the questions have become the subjects of lively […]
