Deep down temperature shifts give rise to eruptions

Research carried out within the 3D Earth project, where an international group of geoscientists joined forces to develop a state-of-the art global model of the lithosphere, gives us a better understanding of the natural processes that are occurring deep below our feet.

This might bring the possibility of predicting eruptions – such as the astonishing Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha‘apai volcano in January and last year’s eruption of the Cumbre Vieja volcano on the Spanish Canary Island of La Palma – a little closer.
