Volcano Watch: Mapping New Lava Volcano Facts Mount St. Helens Pele: The Volcano Goddess ... Water, Wind and Earth Game volcano is a mountain that opens downward to a pool of molten rock below the surface of the earth. When pressure builds up, eruptions occur. Gases and rock shoot up through the opening and spill over or fill the air with lava fragments. Eruptions can cause lateral blasts, lava flows, hot ash flows, mudslides, avalanches, falling ash and floods. Volcano eruptions have been known to knock down entire forests. An erupting volcano can trigger tsunamis, flashfloods, earthquakes, mudflows and rockfalls. ctive volcanoes in the U.S. are found mainly in Hawaii, Alaska, California, Oregon and Washington. The greatest chance of eruptions near areas where many people live is in Hawaii and Alaska. The danger area around a volcano covers about a 20-mile radius. In May 18, 1980, Mount St. Helens erupted in Washington state. It killed 58 people and caused more than $1 billion in property damage. resh volcanic ash, made of pulverized rock, can be harsh, acidic, gritty, glassy and smelly. The ash can cause damage to the lungs of older people, babies and people with respiratory problems.

Michigan Tech's Volcanoes Page aims to provide information about volcanoes to the public and to complement other informational sites on the web. We started this site when there were almost no other volcano sitesnow there are lots, and many of them have far more resources. So we now aim to fill in spots that aren't covered elsewhere.

What is a volcano?
We could say a volcano is a liquid rock plumbing system which extends from several 10's of kilometers depth to the earth's surface, and includes the near vent deposits of eruptions.

Imagine hearing a volcano erupt thousands of miles away. Imagine looking through binoculars and seeing the top of a mountain collapse.
Introduction (grades 4 - 8)
*This packet is only available online.
(From VOLCANOES! Poster. All the images are clickable for larger view.) (Left: Poster Fig. 1) Volcanic eruptions are among the Earth's most powerful and destructive forces. Imagine hearing a volcano erupt thousands of miles away. Imagine looking through binoculars and seeing the top of a mountain collapse. Imagine discovering an ancient Roman city that had been buried in volcanic ash. Volcanoes are also creative forces. The Earth's first oceans and atmosphere formed from the gases given off by volcanoes. In turn, oceans and an atmosphere created the environment that made life possible on our planet. Volcanoes have also shaped the Earth's landscape. Many of our mountains, islands, and plains have been built by volcanic eruptions.
Why Do Volcanoes Erupt?
Deep within the Earth it is so hot that some rocks slowly melt and become a thick flowing substance called magma . Because it is lighter than the solid rock around it, magma rises and collects in magma chambers. Eventually some of the magma pushes through vents and fissures in the Earth's surface. A volcanic eruption occurs! Magma that has erupted is called

When faced with a spewing volcano, people today share many of the same feelings volcano-observers have had throughout human history: We are in awe of the destructive power of nature, and we are unsettled by the thought that a peaceful mountain can suddenly become an unstoppable destructive force! While scientists have cleared up much of the mystery surrounding volcanoes, our knowledge has not made volcanoes any less amazing. In this article, we'll take a look at the powerful, violent forces that create eruptions, and see how these eruptions build volcanic structures like islands.

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) is responsible for monitoring our Nation's 170 active volcanoes (red triangles) for signs of unrest and for issuing timely warnings of hazardous activity to government officials and the public. This responsibility is carried out by scientists at the five volcano observatories operated by the USGS Volcano Hazards Program and also by State and university cooperators.
Natural Hazards - Volcanoes
When the violent energy of a volcano is unleashed, the results can be catastrophic. The risks to life, property, and infrastructure are escalating as more and more people live, work, play, and travel in volcanic regions. To help keep communities safe, it is essential to monitor hazardous volcanoes so that the public knows when unrest begins and what hazards can be expected. The USGS has greatly advanced its ability to evaluate volcanic risks and hazards through research and monitoring programs. USGS realtime volcano-monitoring tools collect and transfer large amounts of data from remote volcanoes for analysis and interpretation. USGS Volcano Related News (USGS Newsroom)

Explosive volcanoes blast hot solid and molten rock fragments and gases into the air. As a result, ashflows can occur on all sides of a volcano and ash can fall hundreds of miles downwind. Dangerous mudflows and floods can occur in valleys leading away from volcanoes. If you live near a known volcano, active or dormant, be prepared to follow instructions from your local emergency officials. Before:

Learn about your community warning systems and emergency plans. Be prepared for the hazards that can accompany volcanoes:
  • Mudflows and flash floods Landslides and rockfalls Earthquakes Ashfall and acid rain Tsunamis
Make evacuation plans. If you live in a known volcanic hazard area, plan a route out and have a backup route in mind. Develop an emergency communication plan. In case family members are separated from one another during a volcanic eruption (a real possibility during the day when adults are at work and children are at school), have a plan for getting back together. Ask an out-of-state relative or friend to serve as the “family contact,” because after a disaster, it’s often easier to call long distance. Make sure everyone knows the name, address, and phone number of the contact person. Have disaster supplies on hand:
  • Flashlight and extra batteries

All About Volcanoes
A volcano is simply defined as an opening in the earth's surface crust through which molten lava, ash, and gases are ejected. Volcanoes occur most often on or near crustal plates or boundaries, although certain volcanoes known as hotspot volcanoes can occur virtually anywhere. Today’s existing terrestrial volcanoes are believed to have formed when molten rock or magma welled up in the Earth’s interior pushed its way to the surface causing the volcanoes’ initial eruptions. Volcanoes all generally fit into one of six different categories: Shield volcanoes, Cinder volcanoes, Stratovolcanoes, Submarine volcanoes, Subglacial volcanoes, and the most powerful volcano of all, the Supervolcano . A Supervolcanic eruption can be catastrophic to entire regions both climatically and geologically. Individual volcanoes are typically described as being either active (currently erupting), dormant (not currently active) or extinct (not expected to ever erupt again). Some of the most famous volcanic eruptions around the world include the Yellowstone Caldera in Yellowstone National Park, Lake Toba in Sumatra, Indonesia, and the devastating eruption of Mt. St. Helens in southwest Washington State in 1980.

Volcano Field Trip
Trailhead Teacher's Resources Start Field Trip Volcanoes can be exciting and dangerous. They are also educational since they tell us a lot about the earth and even other planets. The inside of the Earth is very hot. Sometimes, this heat melts through the rock of the earth's crust, sending hot liquid rock (called magma) and gases onto the Earth's surface. A buildup of lava and ash around the area of an eruption becomes a volcano. Volcanoes can erupt for a very brief time or they can erupt many times over millions of years. Sometimes they sleep for long periods and people think they are finished, but they aren't. Mount St Helens was one of these sleeping volcanoes and it surprised everyone when it became active in 1980, causing a lot of destruction and loss of life. Concepts

    Volcanoes destroy and volcanoes create. The catastrophic eruption of Mount St. Helens on May 18, 1980, made clear the awesome destructive power of a volcano. Yet, over a time span longer than human memory and record, volcanoes have played a key role in forming and modifying the planet upon which we live. More than 80 percent of the Earth's surfaceabove and below sea levelis of volcanic origin.
  • Volcanoes
    Today, there are many active volcanoes worldwide. Is there anything we can do to predict how and when they will erupt? As the world's population grows, more and more people are living in potentially dangerous volcanic areas. Volcanic eruptions continueas they have throughout historyposing ever-greater threats to life and property.
