Los Angeles Times interviews UB volcanologist about Mexican volcano

Published May 14, 2013

UB volcanologist Michael Sheridan is quoted in an article in the Los Angeles Times about the dangers posed by Mexico’s giant Popocatepetl volcano, which has displayed a notable increase in activity levels in the past few days. “In the back of my mind is the fact that these volcanos are more or less continuously accumulating gas and liquid in a subterranean chamber,” he said. “The longer the material is sitting down there … the bigger the eruption that could be expected.”
