Volcanic Arcs Form by Deep Melting of Rock Mixtures

A new study published in the journal Science Advances changes our understanding of how volcanic arc lavas are formed, and may have implications for the study of earthquakes and the risks of volcanic eruption. 

Researchers Compile Most Detailed Map of an Underwater Eruption

Examining more than 50,000 seafloor images, geologists have created the most detailed map ever assembled for a volcanic eruption along a fast-spreading mid-ocean ridge.

Scientists "See" New Ocean Floor Just Before and After It Is Created
