volcanoes erupt because in the magma there are gas bubbles the gas bubbles swell and then the volcanoe burst out with lava and carbon dixoide and ash and clouds come out the magma flows down the side of the volcanoe and then it cools the volcanoe can get up to 1000000 degress


It depends some volcanoes erupt and then thousands of years past they will erupt again but some volcanoes erupt and will never erupt again and are dead volcanoes



It is hard to study vilcanoes because most of the times scientists want to get up close and study the phisical features of the volcanoe. But a volcanoe can erupt at any time unexpectedly so while trying to study it, the volcanoe might erupt and cause damage.

There are three types of volcanoes:Active volcanoe: A volcanoe that can erupt at any time.Dormant volcanoes: These are the volcanoes that had erupted long ago eg a period of 100 years. These can erupt at any time.They are also known as sleeping volcanoes.Extinct volcanoe: These are those that scientists are unlikely to erupt again as they no longer have a lava supply.It is difficult to differentiate between dormant and extinct volcanoes.


How long it takes for a volcano to erupt depends on the volcano and its status. Active volcanoes normally erupt every 10,000 years or less. Dormant or extinct volcanoes rarely, if ever erupt.

because the plates in the ocean move and the volcanoe erupts and goes puuussssshhhhh and so Hawaii was formed!!!!
