During the daytime, you get to look down at the clouds, as well as the impressive volcano Mauna Lua across the plain. Mauna Lua is the world’s largest volcano and mountain when speaking of mass. When on the summit at night, you may be able to see the glowing lava flowing from Mauna Lua.
Splendid but Sorrowful Indian Land: Navajo Nation Have you ever visit Native Indian territory? On last April, my family and I traveled at Navajo Indian Reservation. It is the largest Native American territory, occupying portions of northeastern Arizona, southeastern Utah, and northwestern New Mexico in the United States. In that territory, there are two spectacular sightseeing points, Monument Valley and Antelope Canyon.
The volcano won that night, claiming nearly 25,000 people in the explosion (Bressan, 2011). Nevado Del Ruiz Nevado Del Ruiz volcano is located in the Andes Mountains, it is the northernmost and highest Colombian
The volcano i choose to research goes by the name of Mauna Loa. Mauna Loa translates to “Long Mountain” in the hawaiian language. Mauna is the largest volcano in the world and covers about half of the island. Mauna Loa is also one of the earth 's most active volcanoes, It has erupted about 40 times since its first recorded eruption around 1843 and scientist predict it will erupt again. Mauna Loa is located in Hawaii near Hilo the largest city in Hawaii.
It’s normally formed from a major eruption then the collapse of the mouth of the volcano. Yes, Axial Seamounts does have a caldera. The caldera is 3 km, which is 1.8 miles. One cool interesting fact I learned, a signal of an Axial Seamount eruption is that there are thousands of earthquakes within minutes. The other one that I thought was cool was, that researchers want to see how Axial Seamounts can affect humans.
Following up the information about the formation and deadliness of volcanoes is an example of a volcano, Mt.Tambora, one of the deadliest volcanoes ever. This volcano erupted over 200 years ago, but made a big impact all around the world. It erupted for three months in total. You could hear the explosions from over 1,000 miles away(Lassieur 4). This covered things in lava and was very hard to recover because the lava cools and hardens turning it into something as hard as bedrock(Lassieur 3).
Most of the Spokane Valley is covered by lava of the Miocene Epoch age. During the Pliocene and Pleistocene, great volumes of loess derived from the continental ice sheet. The land surface faced much erosion after the Missoula
Mud volcanoes, which release hot water, mud, and steam, are also evident in the area (9). Some important elements have been discovered in the region including sulphur deposits, sodium carbonate, and even gold (9). Changes in the course of the Colorado river have caused certain channels to dry up and shifts in the river-bed have probably taken place over the past centuries (9). Besides the ever changing land formation, the area itself is constantly dry (9). The highest temperatures are during the summer months, particularly July, when temperatures can spike to 121 degrees Fahrenheit (9).
Yellowstone National Park is one of the most visited parks in America located primarily in Wyoming but also spans to other u.s states such as Montana and Idaho it contains a Supervolcano called the Yellowstone caldera which is the largest volcano in north America. Yellowstone national park first became a park when congress signed a law enabling it to be in 1872 this made Yellowstone the first national park in the whole world. Yellowstone national park is well known for its wildlife that exists at the park it features many animals living in its ecosystem such as lions, reindeers and many more other fascinating creatures. What draws people to Yellowstone is its recreational activities that are offered such as fishing, bungee jumping, hiking,
Hawaii Home to one of the world’s most active volcanoes, lies the beautiful islands of Hawaii. Stretching 1500 miles across the Pacific Ocean and twice the size of Mount St. Helens these islands are one of the youngest geological formations on the earth. These volcanoes are around 80 million years old and is where paradise meets darkness. Behind the stunning views and beautiful beaches, Hawaii has a storm of volcanoes erupting destroying everything in its path. Some may ask what causes this beautiful place to have such active volcanoes and my answer is complex yet simple.
Death Valley is one of America’s hottest national park. In the lower 48 states, it is the largest national park. Adventurous visitors enjoy Death Valley for its many extremes and mysteries like the sailing stones. The valley has a spooky ghost town. I visited the town and no one was there making it disturbing.
Mesa Verde is a National Park in Montezuma County, Colorado that notably preserves the largest amount of ancient Puebloan artifacts and cave dwellings. It is home to a structure called The Cliff Palace which is the largest cliff dwelling in all of North America. Mesa Verde 's canyons were created by streams that slowly eroded the dense sandstone that covers the area. Mesa Verde National Park elevations ranging from about 6,000 to 8,572 feet, the highest elevation at “Park Point.” The terrain in the park is now a transition zone between the low desert plateaus and the Rocky Mountains.
Yellowstone experiences many natural disasters such as volcanic eruptions, steam explosions, and earthquakes; I am going to focus on the volcanic eruptions and lava flows. Yellowstone lava eruptions were nearly 600,000 years ago, 30 eruptions of rhyolitic lava flows filled the Yellowstone Caldera. The rhyolitic lava is really thick and covers a large portion of Yellowstone. There have only been three eruptions from the Yellowstone Super volcano: 2.1 million years ago, 1.2 million years ago, and 640,000 years ago. The last eruption 640,000 years ago caused Yellowstone to collapse creating a sunken giant crater or caldera (Florian Herrmann,2013).The magmatic heat from that eruption still powers the geysers, hot springs, and mud
