HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - An Ohio college student has made a big discovery about Hawaii's volcanoes.
Julie Ditkof says a chemical analysis of magma samples from the islands shows the underground pool of lava that feeds our volcanoes, may be the shallowest in the world.
It's just about 2 miles deep.
In comparison, Iceland's magma chamber is 12 miles deep.
Ditkof's findings could help scientists predict future eruptions.
