Scientists locate potential magma source in Italian supervolcano

18 Sep 2017, ABDN

A new study has found the first direct evidence of a so-called 'hot zone' feeding a supervolcano in southern Italy that experts say is nearing eruption conditions. The study suggests that magma was prevented from rising to the surface in the 1980s by a rock formation. Where the large layer of magma will migrate now is unknown.
