What Lava Poured On Ice Looks Like

Sculptor Bob Wysocki and geologist Jeff Karson of Syracuse University’s Lava Project simulate a volcanic eruption on a snow-covered mountain by pouring 610 pounds of lava over a 6-inch thick slab of ice. Wysocki and Karson’s study found that lava is capable of traveling on top of snow and melted water can bubble up through the lava.
