Beneath the surface of Kilauea –
A mysterious network of faults
For several years, a team of researchers from the University of Geneva, led by Dr. Jöel Ruch, has been dedicated to unraveling the complex mechanics governing the propagation of magma from the depths of the Earth through an underground network of faults and fractures. The discoveries made by these scientists have direct implications for our understanding of volcanic eruptions and are of critical importance for public safety. Immerse yourself in the heart of their exceptional scientific mission on the island of Big Island.
