What is the example of quiet and violent eruptions of volcano?
An example of a "quiet" eruption would be the 1983-present eruption of Kilauea in Hawaii. A violent eruption would be the 1980 eruption of Mount St Helens.
Volcanic eruptions in the Ring of Fire are generally violent, though not all eruptions are. Kilauea is an example of a volcano that has relatively quiet eruptions, but it is a deep mantle hotspot volcano not part of the ring of fire system and its lava is low in water content. In general the volcanoes in the Ring of Fire that have violent eruptions including Mt. St. Helens, Mt. Pinatubo, Krakatoa, and Mt. Mazama because…
Mt. Kilauea on Hawaii is a basaltic shield volcano. This sort of volcano produces basalt lava which is not tremendously gassy and quite hot and runny. Thus unless water gets into the volcano's pluming (in which case there can be violent explosive eruptions), they are usually quiet, well behaved volcanoes.They do however erupt continuously for long periods of time, Kilauea is perhaps, the most active volcano on Earth.
Actually yes it can.Composite volcanoes are an example of it, such as Mt. Egmont in New Zealand, they differ between explosive and quiet. If it was a quiet it'd be a shield (Usually associated with a crater, easy to tell, take Kileuea for example in Hawaii) If it was explosive it'd be a Cinder Cone (Take Izalco in El Salvador for example) Hope this helps (:
Shield volcanoes are formed by gentle eruptions of basic lava which is runny and flows faster than viscous lava (acid lava). This runny lava flows over a greater area before solidifying, thus explaining the gentle slopes of the volcano. Eruptions are quiet and frequent as gas and steam can easily escape from within the volcano. A very good example is Mauna Loa in Hawaii.
Following the climactic eruption of June 15, 1991, activity at the volcano continued at a much lower level, with continuous ash eruptions lasting until August 1991 and episodic eruptions continuing for another month. Activity then remained low until July 1992 when a new lava dome started growing in the caldera. Volcanologists suspected that further violent eruptions could be possible, and some areas were evacuated. However, the eruption was only minor and since that episode, the…
