Volcano Super-Team Studies Iceland Eruptions
Iceland's restless volcanoes make it a perfect place to gather data on all kinds of eruptions. The Futurevolc project brings together over a hundred scientists from a range of disciplines, whose research promises to help the European Union make timely, informed decisions that may help lessen the impact of eruptions on people's lives. The project started in 2012 and played a large role in monitoring the 2014 eruption of Iceland's Bardarbunga volcano.
