Hawaii Volcano Gives Experts Clues To Boost Science


Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano spewing lava is disrupting life in paradise. For scientists, this is a remarkable opportunity to advance volcano science — volcanoes reveal many secrets when they’re rumbling.

Advancements in technology mean experts can measure down to minute levels and gather an unprecedented volume of data.

Experts say this will aid broader understanding of how volcanoes behave, including how magma and water interact and move beneath the Earth’s surface. It might even guide scientists to better pinpoint signs or patterns before an eruption occurs.
