If a volcano is rumbling then we can expect an eruption, but how big will that eruption be? Currently we have little idea of how to forecast the size of future eruptions.

Seismic Activity and Magmatic Intrusions may Forecast Monogenetic Eruptions

In a paper published in Geology, a peer-reviewed scientific journal published by Geological Society of America, Associate Professor Fidel Costa from the Earth Observatory of Singapore and colleagues Helena Albert and Joan Martí from the Central Geophysical Observatory in Spain found that monogenetic eruptions could be anticipated by a combination of seismic and petrological observations.

We conduct a multidisciplinary study which investigates conduit and reservoir bubble dynamics through a combination of petrology, geochemistry, textural analysis, and numerical modeling.
