In a new groundbreaking study, scientists have revealed a fascinating correlation between plant health and volcanic activity.

The new research offers a potential game-changer in predicting eruptions long before traditional methods can.

Green Plants Can Predict Volcanic Activity, New Study Shows

Scientists discovered an increase in greenery, potentially warning species to evacuate.

Plants get greener due to high concentration of CO2 in the volcanic environment

Green Plants Predict Volcanoes

The research published in Geochemistry, Geophysics, Geosystems mentioned that before the eruption of volcanoes, lush green vegetation grew as carbon dioxide concentration increased in the air.

The team of researchers led by Robert Bogue focused on US Yellowstone National Park for its satellite imagery.

The images taken between 1984 and 2022 showed that plants became greener, where volcanic activity was starting to build.

The high concentration of carbon dioxide at the time of volcanic activity helps in the growth of plants, the research mentioned.

The research was published in Geochemistry, Geophysics, Geosystems.
