If happening today, a single caldera-forming eruption would have a devastating impact on the population living around the volcano, destroy the surrounding environment, and also strongly influence the global climate. But what actually is a caldera and how do scientists interpret their eruptive a ...[Read More]

Within the last year, however, our blog team grew significantly (you can see part of our members here) allowing us to restructure the blog a litt ...[Read More]
