Why are scientists able to use rocks to be able to find out that a volcano is explosive or nonexplosive?
Asked in Kilauea
What is some cool information about the volcano Kilauea?
Kilauea's current eruption has been relatively uninterrupted since January 1983. The volcano is known for its passive eruptions, however it has the largest documented history of explosive eruptions of any Hawaiian volcano. The collapse of the east rift zone eruptive vent in March 2011, was viewed online by over 10,000,000 over the following days. For more fun facts please see related links.

Why are caldera volcanoes eruptions so dangerous?
Calderas form as a result of extremely large volcanic eruptions. Caldera-forming eruptions produce huge amounts of ash and pumice. Ash pumped into the upper atmosphere can travel many miles, and areas around the volcano may be buried. Areas closer to the volcano will be struck by massive pyroclastic flows, burning hot clouds of ash that move along the ground at high speeds. Some of these eruptions release so much sulfur that it affects the climate, creating abnormally cool conditions that can lead to crop failures around the world.

What is the function of a volcano crater?
A volcanic crater does not have a function, per se. Rather, it is formed as a natural after-effect of volcanic eruptions. When volcanoes explosively erupt, molten rock is thrown clear of the main vent, where it can cool and harden; gradually, this builds the elevation of rock surrounding the vent, leaving a lower pool in the center of the volcano, and developing a crater (or bowl) shape.
