Trinity scientists persuade volcanoes to tell their stories
Trinity College Dublin
Every volcano has a story, but until now, most of these stories were shrouded in mystery. However, scientists from Trinity College Dublin have just discovered how to prise volcanic secrets from magma crystals, which means they are better able to piece together the history of global geography and to predict future eruptions of active volcanoes. Their method will help to understand the reasons for past eruptions and, thus, allow more accurate predictions for eruptions yet to occur.
