I wish I have a missile and a launch vehicle, with these I wish to be near an erupting volcano, I will try something, which I believe will be the foundation for a future solution, I will direct the missile to the volcano opening and hope it travels all the way to base to strike the source. If it does, it should create waves that will reduce eruption force and prevent volcanic eruption protraction.
This is uproarious because it might appear so impossible and so layman to a volcanologist; in my thinking is a research towards solution. Continued volcanic ash messed people, events and things up last year in Europe and in parts of the Southern Hemisphere this year.
Volcanic eruptions are natural disasters in class of devastations as earthquakes, tornadoes and tsunamis; they can come in different magnitude at places they have occurred before or at new sites. Volcanoes come off many kilometers below ground level; spew their constituents (magma, ash and others), these constituents may travel very far from their source.
Missiles are so many and don’t really matter nowadays that they are obliterated in wars and military drills; advanced laser and radio waves technology provide precision for missiles to hit their target. Missile-like objects should be able to travel down a costate volcano throat and hit the chamber from which magma is spilled, when this happens it reduces eruption force and duration of spill.
This procedure is as simple as launching a war-missile to a target, with certain innovations of organizations like Lockheed Martin or Northrop Grumman, technology to have such twisty missile-like object for this objective is not abstract.
Nations, Institutions and the International Airways Volcano Watch Operations Group (IAVWOPSG) need to align, collectively or separately for this, where safety lie beyond volcanic eruption prediction and evacuation of nearby residents. Nations like Iceland, Japan and others have this opportunity.
