Where on a Volcano is an Eruption Most Likely to Occur?

Magma commonly moves up towards the surface by creating cracks in the crust. It flows inside of the cracks, which grow upwards as the magma applies pressure and damages surrounding rocks. These magma-filled cracks are known as dikes and they are an important form which allows magma to travel easily through the crust.

Volcanic impact assessment currently relies on a small dataset sourced from detailed post-event field studies, which are limited in space and time, and in their applicability outside of the study a

Chemical and textural zoning in crystals from volcanic rocks can be used to fingerprint the processes that lead to magma storage and eruption, but decoding the crystal record is not straightforward

New Findings about Sea-Level Rise that could Impact Singapore's Mangroves

Leading an international study on the vulnerability of salt marshes in the United Kingdom (UK), scientists from the Earth Observatory of Singapore (EOS) at Nanyang Technological University warn that the enhanced rates in sea-level rise are likely to destroy the marshlands found in the UK sooner than previously thought. 

Professor Benjamin Horton from the Earth Observatory of Singapore has been selected as a review editor for the Sixth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
