Yellowstone supervolcano is showing signs of strain 6 - fox news
Volcanoes experience strain from pressures just like humans - but now, scientists say they can measure exactly how much physical strain is on them.Researchers monitoring the Yellowstone supervolcano in Wyoming have detected molten rock about three miles below the surface.While it is not dangerous, the scientists have warned that slight shifts in the environment around the volcano can add up and create significant change over time.The technologies they use can detect changes in volcanic strain smaller than the width of a hydrogen atom.Geodesists David Mencin and Glen Mattioli say these measurements can advance scientists' understanding of volcanic activity.Their work, published this week in Yellowstone Caldera Chronicles, explains what these measurements can tell us about the national park's 'plumbing'.Mencin and Mattioli fleshed out the comparison between strain put on humans and volcanoes in their report.It said: 'We all know what it is like to experience strain.The pressures of everyday life can leave you feeling contorted and stretched.'It turns out, volcanoes are no different - they experience strain as well.' When a volcano experiences strain it changes shape.Specifically, the shape of its subsurface rock changes, the authors said.This process is called deformation.A number of forces can cause deformation.If its magma pressure or the amount of water filling nearby lakes change, a volcano can be subject to deformation.These pressures can be measured by GPS technology comb
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
