Analysis of the El Chichón and Mount Pinatubo volcanic eruptions suggests that solar radiation management strategies using stratospheric sulfate aerosols would do little to counterbalance the effects of climate change on global crop yields.

Using artificial intelligence to understand volcanic eruptions from tiny ash

Scientists have shown that an artificial intelligence program called a Convolutional Neural Network can be trained to categorize volcanic ash particle shapes. Because the shapes of volcanic particles are linked to the type of volcanic eruption, this categorization can help provide information on eruptions and aid volcanic hazard mitigation efforts.

Volcanic lava buries two housing tracts on Hawaii's Big Island

Volcanic lava buries two housing tracts on Hawaii's Big IslandBy Terray Sylvester PAHOA, Hawaii (Reuters) – An ever-creeping wall of lava from Kilauea Volcano has engulfed two entire seaside housing tracts at the eastern tip of Hawaii’s Big Island, government scientists reported on Wednesday, an area where civil defense officials said nearly 280 homes once stood. The obliteration of the Kapoho Beach Lots and Vacationland subdivisions by a river of molten rock some 10 to 15 feet (3 to 4.6 meters) tall brings to at least 400 the number of homes and other structures consumed by lava during the past month. “Vacationland is gone, there’s no evidence of any properties there at all,” Wendy Stovall, a vulcanologist with the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), told reporters on a conference call.

A 'hot avalanche' of volcanic ash and rock killed dozens of people in Guatemala

Imagine a 1,300-degree avalanche of rocks, gas and debris roaring toward you at speeds of up to 50 mph. That’s exactly what happened to dozens of Guatemalans on Sunday, when the nation’s “volcano of fire” roared back to life, belching out a deadly mix of ash and lava that killed at least 33 people.

Guatemala volcano latest: At least 25 dead as huge volcanic eruption 'buries' people across three villages

Guatemala volcano latest: At least 25 dead as huge volcanic eruption 'buries' people across three villagesA huge volcanic eruption has engulfed homes and fields across three towns in Guatemala, killing at least 25 people with local officials warning the death toll is expected to rise. Volcan de Fuego, whose name means “Volcano of Fire”, spewed an 8km (5-mile) stream of red hot lava and belched a thick plume of black smoke and ash that rained onto the capital and other regions. One video purportedly from the worst-affected village of El Rodeo showed the charred remains of three victims strewn atop the steaming, ashen remnants of a pyroclastic flow.

Hawaii volcanic smog blankets Marshall Islands

Hawaii volcanic smog blankets Marshall IslandsHaze from the Kilauea volcano eruption in Hawaii blanketed the Marshall Islands 3,700 kilometres (2,300 miles) away on Sunday, as officials warned it would continue moving west. The haze, a phenomenon known as “vog” or volcanic smog, “is spreading across Micronesia,” the US National Weather Service based in Guam said. The volcano on Hawaii’s Big Island is now in its fourth week of eruptions.
