New research has revealed a huge mass of molten magma that is growing under a large area of North-Eastern America.
Scientists have found that in a region completely devoid of volcanoes, one day there may be a serious eruption, reports Rus.Media. New research has revealed a huge mass of molten magma that is growing under a large area of North-Eastern America.
The researchers monitored seismic activity in the region of New England in the last two years, the magma swelling was observed mainly at the Central Vermont Western Massachusetts and Western new Hampshire.
Although serious eruption is believed, may not happen soon, the results indicate a monumental shift in the landscape of the area, completely devoid of volcanoes. The United States has 169 active volcanoes, many of which are located in Alaska and Hawaii.
The study’s lead author Vadim Levin is a geophysicist and Professor at Rutgers University in new Jersey, said that the results of the study “challenge the concepts of the textbook” Geology.
