Researchers have provided new insights into how molten rock (magma) moves through the Earths crust to feed volcanic eruptions. Using laboratory experiments involving water, jelly and laser imaging, researchers were able to demonstrate how magma magma flows through the Earths crust to the surface through magma-filled cracks called dykes.
