What does active volcano mean?

An active volcano is a term used to describe a volcano that has erupted within the past 600 years. A volcano that is not active, or has not erupted for 600 years or more is known as dormant. An "active" volcano is any volcano that shows signs of eruption, or that is known to erupt over a period of years or decades.The other type is a "dormant" volcano, which has erupted in the past but not within several decades or centuries. A more specific classification lists volcanoes that are either erupting or likely to erupt as opposed to clasification by varying historical records. Those not on either list are unlikely to erupt in the foreseeable future.

Mt, Etna in Italy is thought to be the world's oldest active volcano. The first record of its eruption dates back to 1500 BC. Since then, Etna has erupted 190 times.

Can active volcanoes become in active?

Some types of volcanoes are known as "monogenetic" meaning they are formed in and limited to, one single eruption, commonly forming cinder cones. One example is Paricutin in the Trans-Mexican Volcanic Belt. Some volcanoes become dormant, meaning they haven't erupted in several hundred thousand years, but are thought to still contain eruptible magma somewhere beneath them. An example would be Mt Ranier in the Cascades Arc. Some volcanoes become inactive or "extinct" because the magmatic system feeding them becomes shut off, migrates to another volcano, or simply stops supplying them (this is poorly understood as the timescales over which this occurs are so huge). An example of this would be the Hawaii-Emperor Seamount Chain - the islands are all volcanoes that become progressively older the further North you go. This is because the magma source feeding the volcanoes came from a "hot-spot" or "mantle-plume" located in a fixed position underneath the Pacific tectonic plate. As the plate moved over the top, the magma source become cut off, rendering one volcano extinct, while building another one slightly further South.
