It releases nutrients into the water and the lava cools. It can Also cause a tsunami. A tsunami is a giant wave that washes away entire cities. >:o

yes, after a volcano erupts this happens

Yes. However, lava that erupts underwater cools very quickly.

A volcano that erupts underwater may form an underwater mountain called a seamount. If the volcano is still active it can eventually form a new island.

An underwater volcano erupts the same way as one located above the water does. The main difference is that the under water volcano cools off quicker because of the water.

Generally, a dormant volcano that erupts catches everyone by surprise. A dormant volcano often gives little to no warning before erupting.

When a shield volcano erupts, lower-viscosity lava will typically fountain or flow out of a vent and then flow downhill.

After a Volcano erupts the lava that comes out dries out and can make a new layer of a volcano.

Type your answer here... were do you go when a volcano erupts

Before a volcano erupts there will be a series of small earthquakes, due to the pressure of the magma building underneath, and as the magma draws closer to the surface the volcano will release gases.

Either they run away, get rescued, or die.

it runs down the side of the volcano till it hardens. Islands are formed by this

active volcano- frequently erupts dormant volcano- rarely erupts extinct volcano- NEVER EVER erupts

User Avatar

Before a volcano erupts the magma and gases that is underground begin to rise to the mouth of the volcano. There are usually earthquakes that occur before a volcano erupts as well.

Some asymptotic estimations show that for typical parameters of observed surface eruptions, underwater volcanoes can generate catastrophic waves.

They are usually evacuated before the volcano erupts. If anyone stays when an eruption happens he/she will not survive.
