Trigger for Volcanic Eruptions Discovered Using Jelly and Lasers

Scientists have made an important step towards understanding how volcanic eruptions happen, after identifying a previously unrecognised potential trigger.

The findings - from the team of researchers from Monash University, and the Universities of Liverpool (UK) and Newcastle (Australia) – could lead to new ways of interpreting signs of volcanic unrest measured by satellites and surface observations.
