Volcanoes are beautiful and awe-inspiring, but the ongoing eruption of Kilauea on Hawaii's Big Island is showing how dangerous these events can be. So far this event has destroyed dozens of homes and displaced hundreds of ...
The Saharan dust cloud that cast a red glow over the UK last autumn helped scientists to take a step forward in understanding how to prepare for future volcanic eruptions.
New research, led by the University of Bristol, has provided fresh insight into how huge volcanic ash plumes, which can critically disrupt aviation and cause major impact on the ground, are transported in the atmosphere.
