What causes volcanoes? What role do they play in the formation and maintenance of our planet? And is it ever possible to predict when and where they are about to erupt? This radio broadcast covers the science of volcanology; Earth's layers; the rising up of magma between tectonic plates; the difference between diffusive and explosive volcanoes; and the ongoing cooling of Earth since its formation, ...

Not so long ago, people living near volcanoes had little that might help them to anticipate an eruption. A deep rumble, a puff of smoke, and ash might foreshadow a major volcanic event. Or a volcano might erupt with no warning at all. This interactive feature illustrates some of the types of seismic activity that may preceed an eruption, which modern seismologists are studying in hopes of improving ... Full description.
