No. Although scientists can monitor signs that a volcano is getting ready to erupt they are nowhere near predicting the day a volcano will erupt. They might not even be able to predict the month or even the year that it will erupt.

The exact year of the eruption is not known. Estimates vary between 1540 and 1642 BC.

Kinda-sorta.It's a bit like weather reports, they can tell what's probable, and they can say if the risk in increasing or decreasing, but they can never give an exact date.Or an exact estimate of the force and duration of the eruption.No, but they try because it can save livesNot really. Although scientists can often tell if a volcano will erupt relatively soon, they can't tell when it will occur until it actually happens.

It depends on the location and when it first erupted and how bad that eruption was. If it was really bad then it might not erupt for hundreds of years later that's just how it is. Some scientist don't know and that's the truth so there isn't an exact answer to that question.

No. The principles of probability are not deterministic. They cannot predict exact answers to anything.

you can predict them but does not mean that your predictions are right You can calculate when they will be to the exact time.

I couldn't find an exact number but, locals from towns and villagers within a 15km radius of the volcano were evacuated in the four days prior to the October 2002 eruption.

Predicting volcanic eruptions although part of the science of volcanology is the most difficult thing to successfully accomplish. The times between eruptions of volcanoes varies, and does not follow an exact pattern or time frame between eruptions. The only way that scientists have an idea of when a volcano will next erupt is when the volcano starts showing signs of unrest, and than it still depends heavily on what types of unrest the scientists are witnessing.

Based on what? Please post another question with a bit more information about the exact situation in which you want to predict the final velocity.

Predicting volcanic eruptions is very difficult and depends on a number of factors. Scientists look at gas emissions, small earthquakes, and ground deformation, all of which can be affected by the movement of magma. It is not an exact science as no two volcanoes are quite the same. A volcano may show signs of unrest then quite back down, or it may erupt with no discernible warning.

Because its exact name is "current intensity". The letter "i" comes from intensity.

I'M not sure of the exact figure but the rising ash was twice as high as Everest at one point

you can predict the age of a leopard gecko by size,weight and even diet !

'Current' on an A.T.M. receipt means 'now' or 'at this exact moment in time'.

I'm not sure of the exact date on that exact prediction but Nostradamas lived in the 1500s so that should give you an idea of the time.

yes, to a limited degree. By using tools like Doppler radar meteorologists can predict approximately where and when a tornado is likely to occur. Still, even with a combination of radar and weather spotters we cannot predict the exact path a tornado will take with certainty.

Okmok volcano in Alaska violently erupted in 1817. Thousands of people were said to have been killed, but there is no record of the exact number.

It will form extrusive igneous rock. Beyond that they exact type will vary.

No. They can, however, trace it back and extrapolate possible future changes in certain circumstances

lots of cities and hotels live near there but not exact further down where the volcano actually is so yes not towns and villages live there but hotels and cities do

By radio carbon dating one can find out the age of a fossil, may be with this principle one can predict the age of living things existed on earth but cant predict the exact time.

Earthquakes do not happen in stages, or are visibly predictable like hurricanes or tornadoes. For example, we can use radars and weather tools to detect them. Earthquakes on the other hand, don't happen in stages so we can not precisely predict the exact timing of the earthquake. Scientists have other ways to predict earthquakes, even thought they can not predict the precise timing of the quakes. See the question below to see how scientists (seismologists) can predict roughly when and how much damage an earthquake can impose.

Neutrinos have a miniscule, but non-zero mass. No one really knows what the exact mass is, but scientists predict it might be about 1.5 eV.
