NASA finds Fuego’s volcanic avalanches are still warm, weeks after violent eruption

A NASA satellite passed over Guatemala’s Volcán de Fuego on June 24, and it found something intriguing. According to data collected by the satellite — named Landsat 8 — temperatures in the chaotic avalanches the volcano blasted down its flanks three weeks earlier are still relatively high.  Landsat 8 takes around 400 detailed images each...CONTINUE READING

Extreme volcanic eruptions could explain mysterious rock formation on Mars

Could a volcanic eruption be the key to unlocking the mysterious geological history of Mars? Back in the 1960s, NASA’s Mariner spacecraft discovered an extremely large and unusually soft rock formation. The makeup of the mass, now known as the Medusa Fossae formation, stumped researchers for decades because they were never able to determine how...CONTINUE READING

A drone flew over the Fuego volcano’s hellish aftermath in Guatemala. Here’s what it saw.

There’s no question that Guatemala’s Volcán de Fuego is a deadly mountain. Beginning June 3, the volcano sent chaotic avalanches of rock and gas down its sides, and as of June 13 the eruptions had taken 110 lives, with some 200 people still missing.  Since those initial scorching avalanches — known as pyroclastic flows —...CONTINUE READING

Is Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano shooting green gems into the air?

Embedded in the lava still spewing some 130 feet into the air from Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano are green crystals.  Called olivine, these minerals can turn Hawaiian beaches green, and it appears some of the green gems are raining down upon homes near the eruption or popping up near lava flows.

Satellite photos reveal the devastation of Guatemala’s Fuego volcano

Hotel La Reunión Golf Resort and Residences sits in the shadow of Guatemala’s Volcán de Fuego, at about five miles away. Prior to the June 3 eruption, it was a verdant land, with well-manicured lawns.  Two days later, harrowing avalanches of scorching volcanic ash, rocky debris, and gas — called pyroclastic flows — smothered La...CONTINUE READING

Why Guatemala’s volcano erupted in deadly avalanches, but Hawaii’s hasn’t

Guatemala’s Volcán de Fuego — literally translated to the Volcano of Fire — can be a terrifying mountain.  On June 3, the volcano sent scorching avalanches of swiftly flowing volcanic debris, known as pyroclastic flows, down its flanks, which the Guatemalan government said has so far killed 25 people.  But this is nothing new for...CONTINUE READING

Hawaii hits one month of vigorous lava flows — and shows no signs of relenting

Precisely one month ago, a 500-foot long crack in the ground opened up in Hawaii’s Leilani Estates neighborhood, spewing lava into the air. At the time, volcanologists weren’t sure what might happen next, and whether lava flows would continue through the community. Since then, the state reports that lava has now blanketed over 2,300 acres...CONTINUE READING

Don’t let lava stop you from visiting Hawaii

The images are downright apocalyptic. With plumes of ash and glowing lava, the area around Mount Kilauea looks more like Mordor than a tropical paradise.  That hasn’t been great for tourism. National Park System economist Lynne Koontz told the New York Times the local economy is losing $455,000 per day. SEE ALSO: Can I roast...CONTINUE READING

Hawaii’s destructive lava flows hit the ocean, making the Big Island bigger

The history of Hawaii is a tale of lava flowing into the sea.  Bounties of fresh lava poured out of the Kilauea volcano’s recently opened fissures this weekend, producing orange molten rivers that flowed downslope to the Pacific Ocean. When they met, the lava chilled into rock while creating plumes of acidic steam.  These lava...CONTINUE READING
