Volcanoes are shaped like mountains, but they eject lava due to tectonic activities beneath the Earth's surface. This can result in eruptions, depending on the intensity and the type of volcano, and cause damage.
The volcano Mount Vesuvius buried the towns of Pompeii andHerculaneum in the year 79.
has mount katmai did any damage
The volcanic mountain Haleakala is on the island of Maui, Hawaii, near 20.7° North latitude.(More precisely, it is located at 20°42′35″N, 156°15′12″W in central Maui.)
In the beginning God created the Heavens and the Earth. Genesis 1:1
Haleakala is on the island of Maui and makes up the majority of the  island.
A volcanic crater is a generally circular shaped depression.
Predominantly due to friction. Major earthquakes (the ones you hear  about on the news) occur at collision (where two tectonic plates  are smashing together) and conservative (where two plates slide  side-by-side) boundaries.   Rocks (which obviously make up tectonic plates) can undergo two ...
Kings Mountain, the highest mountain in the US state of Utah is a  dormant volcano. It is often termed as a super-volcano. This is  because millions of years ago i.e the time when Kings mountain was  an active volcano, its frequent eruptions measured more than a  whopping 13,00 feet.
Vesuvius is about 1,000 feet deep and 2,000 feet across.
There is no difference. Stratovolcano is just another way of saying  composite. Composite volcanoes are very explosive and the most  dangorous (also very big). Example: Mount vesuvius and Mount St.  Helens
to get to Pompeii, you have to go to Naples, Italy. You will alsofind mount Vesuvius, which is the volcano the destroyed Pompeii.
yes according to scientific experiences.
The mount toba supervolcano last erupted some 70,000 years ago.  However it is still active as indicated by the earthquakes that  occurred as recently as 1922. The honest answer is we don't know,  but its unlikely it will erupt soon.
Typically a quiet eruption means that the magma being forced onto  the surface is low in silicates and gases. This typically means  that it would be basaltic and slow moving like the lava flows that  can be observed in Hawai'i. A common danger to anybody near a  volcano could be poisonous gases.
Scientists do not know exactly when Yellowstone will erupt. Most  likely in a few million years or so (estimate).
Yes. Mt Melbourne Volcano, 2733 m, stands isolated near the coast of Terra Nova Bay.
Well your mom is one
The correct answer is Sliding Friction
The world's most active volcano is the Kilauea, which is in the  island of Hawaii.
Mt. Lassen is a lava dome type of volcano. The domes of lava dome  volcanoes grows from within, and commonly occur within the craters  or on the flanks of large composite volcanoes.
Not at present. There are many rumors and hoaxes going around  saying that the supervolcano at Yellowstone is going to erupt soon.  One reason is the common misconception that Yellowstone is  "overdue" for an eruption. Many will state that the volcano erupts  at regular intervals of 600,000...
A physical feature formed by volcanic eruption is an island. The  Hawaiian Islands consist of a chain of such landforms.
yes there were some survivers but nobody knows how many
smoke started to come out of Mt St Helensjade!!
Cinder cone volcanoes erupt explosively, but not as violently as composite volcanoes.

No. The Earth won't "explode"! Volcanoes relieve pressure overrelatively small areas, but the planet's Crust and interior as awhole are basically in equilibrium.
I don't have a name for it, but I heared that volcanoe scientists put GPS receivers on volcanoes and monitor the position data by a radio link. To achieve extreme accuracy, many measurements are made over an extended period of time, and by use of the Gaussian probability the actual position thus is...
Volcanoes that are underwater, known as submarine volcanoes. Thedeepest one is the Submarine 1922 in the Celebes Sea near theSanghie Islands of Indonesia, and it is 16,000 feet (5,000 meters)below sea level.
The 79 AD eruption of Mount Vesuvius did not produce lava flows. It  was a Plinian eruption, produducing a massive ash plume and  pyroclastic flows. Pyroclastic flows are not lava flows, they are  masses of hot ash, rock, and gas that resemble avalanches. Nobody  was able to clock the speed of...
mt arenal is approximately 7,000 years old
It is not on a plate boundary but in the middle of a plate. Kilauea  has formed over a hot spot.
the active boundary between plates is a ?
It was named Mt. Rainier by George Vancouver for his friend, Read  Admiral Peter Rainier. Native Americans, of course, had their own  name for it before the British arrived.
It is a volcano that has never ever been gay wwait it has !
Mount Saint Helens is part of the Cascade Volcanic Arc. This  volcanic arc is included in the ring of fire. All Cascade Volcanoes  in the Western United States are considered part of the Ring of  Fire.
volcanoes are formed when two plates in the earths crust move and magma from deep inside move upwards.
  The difference between the three volcanoes, shield, cinder cone, and composite, are shield volcanoes are built almost entirely of fuluid lava flow, cinder cone volcanoes are the most common volcanoes in Iceland, they created the island of Surtsey. Finally, composite vocanoes are formed by...
Saint-pierre, destroyed by the eruption of 1902
an underwater volcano is kick 'em Jenny and im a bum
because it needs a lot of potential energy to build up to have a big eruptions during the past.
It is because of the steam. It will help to push it up and make it  almost float to the top.
Adenosine receptors stick through the neuron membrane, so that part  of them are on the inside and part is on the outside of the cell.  Now, when adenosine, a natural chemical in the body, attaches to  the adenosine receptor it shifts the shape of the receptor, this  shift reaches all the way to...
Although the crust of the planet Earth is relatively cool (much cooler than the melting point of rock) the interior is hot, and contains a layer of liquid rock, also known as magma (over a deeper layer of liquid metal). The heat is the result of radioactive elements inside the Earth. Since the...
In 1984, Mauna Loa burned the land and houses for 48 sq. km. Itcame within four miles of Hilo.
ARENAL VOLCANO located in Costa Rica.
A cinder cone volcano has basaltic lava.
the European plates and the Africa plate
at the present mt kilauea has been erupting along the east rift zone alomost conitinuously since 1985. In terms of how long it has been active above sea level it is harder to say. roughly 50- 100 thousand years.
No. they are all extinct. The extinct volcanoes are: Ostrzyca,Grodczyn, and Wilcza Góra.
yes becouse its so high its always cold up the top
a lot of destruction. i mean, c'mon! it burns anything/one that stands in its way. It's only enemy is water or snow or something cold.
                               A VOLCANO WITH LAYERS OF DUST,ASH,ROCK,AND LAVA.
Its a science that is being worked on. Once an earthquake hashappened, then regional centers can predict if there are likely tobe more or not, but its not a perfect science. How they do whatthey do is they have remote sensors that they deploy to regionswhere there are known faults. Those who live in...
By using a tiltmeter to check the ground swelling
Because Mount Rainier is a Strato Volcano it has both quiet and explosive eruptions. Explosive(pyroclastic) flows have a high silica level. Quiet have low silica levels. The more silica the thicker the magma.
Magma that hardens after being forced into a crack across rock is called a dike.
Yes. Any vent in the ground from which lava flows is, by definition, a volcano.
No mount Stromnoli is no t on a hot spot becase it is not the newest volcano and it is on its own island call Stromboli and it shoots our pasta and then later it shoots out the sasce.
Cinder cone volcanoes are the most common type of volcanoes. They are characterized by steeply angled sides and a conical shape. They are relatively small in size and can range from tens to hundreds of meters in height. They are often found along the flanks of larger, more mountain sized volcanoes...
Volcanic eruptions affect the weather conditions locally and globally by cooling the planet.
in the north pole during the winter months.
The differences are that Pahoehoe produces fast moving lava; Aa produces slower moving lava. The kind of eruption that produces these types of lava is a quiet eruption.
It is a small town that tourists go to to visit the Kilauea from aboard and visit the beaches of the area.
Ash, mud, and toxic gases. Often steam will be generated by water or snow reaching hot magma.
The four different types of volcanoes include lava domes and shield  volcanoes. The other two types of volcanoes are cinder cones and  composite volcanoes.
a hot spot is a volcanically active area that is located far from a tectonic plate boundary
The flow of lava is very distractive and can cause a lot of damage
Volcanic belts form along the boundaries of the plates where  converging boundaries push together and divergent boundaries pull  apart. Volcanoes can form because of hot spots in the mantle of the  Earth. Solid materials, like magma, that melt in the Earth's crust  rise and can form volcanic...
Type your answer here... a volcanic eruption is when magma goes out of the top hole in an volcaneokaay was here by the wayy
The main hazard from a quiet volcano is the lava flows. The streams  of molten rock that ooze from an erupting volcano are lava flows.
Because lava is molten rock, which has melted, so when it cools down it turns back into rock, like water into ice.
No, Mount Krakatau is located in Indonesia. And this is for Krakatau, not Mount Kratatoa.
The oceanic plate is denser than the Continental plate, therefore as they collide the oceanic plate will force itself underneath towards the molten rock underneath the Continental plate. As it pushes itself towards the Mantle the rock with be subjected to heat and pressure, the Molten is released;...
They are both considered friend and foe. Foe because they harm others like people and animals. Friend because the magma can make more land when it hardens like rock.
Volcanoes can affect landforms in a great number of ways. Volcanoes  can add to many different types of landforms in the area.
Mount Fuji is the archetype of the  stratovolcano and probably  rivals Vesuvius for the best-know volcano. The volcano rises about  3,500 m above the surrounding plain. Fuji has erupted at least 16  times since 781 AD. Most of these eruptions were moderate to  moderate-large in size.
Yes. I have bee preventing volcanoes in Florida for nearly 35 years now.
