Eifel Volcano Shows Signs of Magma Activity in Germany

Scientists are calling for a reassessment of the risk of a volcanic eruption in their country after a study detected “deep low frequency” earthquakes and determined magma could rise into the upper crust beneath the Eifel volcano.

Deep and low-frequency earthquakes have been detected for the first time under the dormant Eifel volcano in North Rhine-Westphalia, a new paper shows.

As similar tremors are commonly regarded as indicators of the movement of magma at great depths, this discovery suggests magmatic fluids from the upper mantle of the Earth could rise into its crust under East Eifel.
