It is hoped that the findings of the geologist will help in protecting the travelers from the havoc that was witnessed in 2010 because of sudden eruption of Eyjafjallajokull.

It has come to light that the team of geologists analyzed trapped magma to gauge at to what causes eruptions. Las Cañadas volcanic caldera on Tenerife were the subject of the study. The Las Cañadas volcanic caldera on Tenerife are located on the Canary Islands.

Crystal cumulate nodules discovered at the pyroclastic deposits of major eruptions were studied by the geologists. Rex Taylor from Southampton University said, “These nodules are special because they were ripped from the magma chamber before becoming completely solid…. Rims of crystals in the nodules grew from a very different magma, indicating a major mixing event occurred immediately before eruption”.

The findings of the study has come out at right time as after two weeks travelers will begin to visit these places. It is hoped that the findings will help in alarming the travelers about the eruptions.
