The technique, which was developed by a team from Washington State University (WSU) and the University of Idaho, will enable researchers to better understand the pools of magma (molten volcanic rock beneath the Earth's surface) that recharge the system, although it won’t necessarily help to predict when the volcano will erupt. "It is the coal in the furnace that's heating things up," Peter Larson, a professor at the WSU School of the Environment, said in a statement. read more
