I choose this one because this explains how deadly this volcano was and is and what it could do if this happened again. "Then more terror. As the volcano loses energy, the molten rock and ash mix together to create a super heated wave that rushes down the mountain at 80 miles an hour. This burning avalanche is known as a pyroclastic flow.
Tsunamis happen when the plates on the crust of the earth move, therefore moving the entire plate so that the water rises and is pushed forward, therefore causing a tsunami (Drohan, 2009, p.21). These tectonic plates are everywhere, under everything from the biggest mountain to the smallest hill. Though it is infrequent, volcanoes have been known to cause tsunamis. It happens when to volcano begins to erupt, but instead of coming out from the top of the volcano a lateral blast shoots out from the side. Next, a quickly moving avalanche of lava pours into the water near it causing the wave to travel to distant coastlines (Springer, 2005).
Hawaii and Yellowstone can be compared and contrasted in many ways. Yellowstone and Hawaii are great places to have a vacation with your family. What people don't know is that there are standing on super volcanos that could erupt at anytime. Giant chambers of molten lava just 8 kilometers below your feet. One time your enjoying the nature, next nature takes its toll and magma rushing up from the ground.
And all of these things were enough signs but the death of two bathers gave Harry his very conclusion. Typically water once more will gain chemicals and minerals causing the water to be super-heated or acidic from minerals, and in this instance it heated enough to boil two people alive. E. How did Harry know when the last eruption of Dante’s peak was when he picked up a rock? Harry did know and concluded when the last eruption of Dante’s peak when picked up a rock by understanding cross section of a volcano. They can determine how often a volcano “usually” erupts by dating each of these layers using a variety of methods.
The Book I chose to explore was I Survived: The Eruption of Mount St. Helens, 1980. I chose this book because I have read a couple of I Survived books and found them to be very interesting since they are based on true stories. This is a non-fiction book because the events that occur actually happened. In addition, the main characters Jessie, Sam and Eddie were real people who experienced this destructive volcanic event. The theme of this book is about a volcanic eruption that occurred May 18th, 1980 at 8:32am at Mount St. Helens.
There are many natural disasters that affect the world, for example, volcanoes. Mount St. Helens is known to be the most active volcano in the Cascade Range in Washington; effecting the people and the state. It was first recognized as a volcano in 1835! Before the eruption on May 18,1980, Mount St. Helens was a beautiful symmetrical cone, 3,000 meters above sea level. For most of the 20th century, many people viewed this mountain and recreation area as a beautiful and peaceful place, but after the volcano erupted in 1980 that view point was shattered.
In the article, Mt. Vesuvius: Day of Disaster by Lauren Tarshis, it talks about what happened when this massive volcano erupted, in Italy, next to a town called Pompeii. At the time, they did not know that it was a volcano, or that it was going to become one of the most famous eruptions in history. The author walks the reader through what probably was going on before the eruption, and also made it seem like the reader was actually part of the story. She also tells the reader some facts that a lot of people may not know, such as some information on what happened before the eruption.
Inside these layers, temperature and density all play a role in the layers of the Earth. This information was found in the “Density Column lab” and “Sink or Float Lab”. In the labs, it was discovered that the less dense liquids would be on top and the more dense liquids would be on the bottom. The liquids posed as the layers of the Earth. Density is how much matter can go into an object.
Fracking is a method of getting natural gas out of the ground. The way fracking is done is by drilling down into the earth vertically until getting into the layer with gas in it where there you drill horizontally. Once at the location of the rock with gas inside it from there a water mixture is directed at the porous rock to release the gas inside. The water mixture contains water, sand , and a mixture of over 700 chemicals. The mixture is injected at the rock at high pressure it fractures the rock so the gas is released.
Red and yellow lava “strips” blow inside the volcano. When you emerge from the volcano, you gain speeds of 85 miles per hour! It is as if you are being launched. The volcano is realistic in that it gives you, the passenger, the effect of shooting out of a real volcano like hot, fiery lava. Then, at the top of the first hill, you slow down to approximately five to ten miles per hour and accelerate to 90 miles per hour in 1.8 seconds.. At this point, around 56 meters high, the train approaches its highest potential energy, which happens when you are at the tallest peak of the roller coaster.
