New frontier for near magma research and innovation
Our motivation is to discover and verify concepts of deep hydrothermal systems and magma by drilling into magma and instrumenting our boreholes for monitoring and experiments underground.
With this we will open a new frontier for near magma research and innovation. Instead of the current indirect approaches we will finally be able to sample and test magma to discover the reality of Earth’s molten state.
...magma's power could fuel a sustainable world?
…the secrets hidden beneath volcanoes could be unlocked?
…catastrophic volcanic eruptions could be forecast, like hurricanes?
Did you know...
...that 1 billion people live within 100 km of active volcanoes?
...magma holds renewable energy that can power our planet for centuries?
...that 1000°C magma is only 2km below the surface in Krafla Iceland?
…a future where the world powered by the boundless energy of magma, the secrets hidden beneath volcanoes are revealed and catastrophic volcanic eruptions can be predicted.
Step into a world where the extraordinary becomes reality.
At the Krafla Magma Testbed (KMT), we’re turning “what ifs” into “whens”. With cutting-edge science, international collaboration, and unwavering determination, KMT is unlocking the Earth’s hidden treasures, revolutionizing energy possibilities, and redefining the boundaries of exploration. Join us on this remarkable journey as we delve into the heart of volcanoes, harness the power of magma, and illuminate the path towards a more sustainable future.
