Undersea Volcanoes Explode Dramatically

Under the incredible pressures of the deep sea, how do volcanoes erupt? And how do these eruptions affect the marine environment? An international team of scientists simulated pressurized eruptions in the lab, and developed an explosive new theory explaining how they occur. Amanda SemlerI’m a PhD candidate in Earth System Science at Stanford University, and […]

First evidence of deep explosive volcanic activity at the Marsili Seamount

The Marsili Seamount is the largest volcanic complex in the Mediterranean area and Europe. Previously thought to have last erupted between 100,000 and 1 million years ago, new evidence suggests the latest eruption was only 3 thousand years ago. Additionally, that eruption was explosive and deep (500-800 meters below sea level), resulting in several tephra […]
