3D Images of magma below mono craters

A new conceptual model of the magma system below Mono Lake and Mono Craters in eastern California gives scientists a more detailed understanding of volcanic processes at depth and a better model for forecasting volcanic unrest according to a new paper in the Journal of Geophysical Research: Solid Earth
