Volcanoes come in different sizes and shapes. There is a different kind of volcanoes in the world in different areas for example the desert or just normal grasslands. What I think of volcanoes is lava flowing from a mountain or that’s what I think. The volcano that I am doing is named Mount Shasta the fifth tallest mountain in the world! Mount Shasta last erupted in 1986. It erupted about every 800 years, but in the past it erupted every 600 years. The tallest mountain is located on the border of chile/Argentina called Ojos del Salado and the smallest volcano in the world is in Puebla Mexico it is called Cuexcomate. There is a lot of volcano in the world to big ones from small ones.
There is four different kind of volcano a Cinder volcano which is the most common volcano. A composite volcano makes up the world most memorable mountains for example Mount shasta or Mount rainier. A shield volcano are really big they look like shields above the lava pour is really thin, so it can travel a great distance down …show more content…
People say it is really easy to climb Mount Shasta because of their cross-country, however there is short approach and when you go higher up there is snow which makes it harder to reach the top of the mountain. Mount Shasta is a stratovolcano which means that the volcano is built up of alternate layers of lava and ash. It is the most Voluminous volcano which means the space is really big. It estimated of Mount Shasta volume is 85 cubic miles. There is 7 glaciers on Mount Shasta. One of them is called Whitney Glacier, the Glacier is the longest in california, also the only Glacier in california. It in cascades Mount Shasta is the second biggest volcano but it is the fifth largest volcano in california. Mount Shasta is formed about 8,000 years ago, however Mount Shasta is still active volcano it erupt every 600 to 800

On May 18th, 1980, Mount Saint Helen, a volcano in Washington erupted majorly. The eruption is the most studied volcano eruption. Mt. St. Helen was known as one of the most prestige volcanoes in the Cascade Range before its eruption on May 18, 1980. The eruption made a big blast that destroyed the northern part of the volcano, crushing millions of the trees below the mountain. The zone was further described as a big debris avalanche.
Popocatepétl 19° N, 98° W - Satsang Adhikari Popocatepetl is located in Puebla, Mexico. It is a steep-sided stratovolcano, with the elevation of 5,426 meters, which is a part of the Trans-Mexican Volcanic Belt that extends 900 km from east to west across central southern Mexico. It is also one of the 452 active volcanoes surrounding the “Ring of Fire”. NASA considers Popocatepetl to currently be the planet’s “most riskiest volcano”.
Mt. St. Helens is known as “Louwala-Clough”. Louwala Clough is also known as the “Smoking Mountain” because of some Indians of the Pacific Northwest, while, Mt. St. Helens had a memorable story behind its name. It was named Mt. St. Helens to honor a fellow countryman, who happened to be one of the naval officers. It was Captain George Vancouver, who had the idea and dedicated it to honor his fellow countryman, Alleyne Fitzherbert and Vancouver named the three other volcanoes, Mount Hood, Mount Rainier and Mount Baker for the other British Naval Officers as well. Captain George Vancouver is known as the British Royal Navy, a seafarer and also an explorer.
On May 18th, 1980, thirty-five years ago, Mt St. Helens erupted and changed the course of history. This towering Washington volcano is part of the Pacific Ring of Fire. During the eruption the mountain spewed hot gases, rocks and, ash into the sky causing a mud flow down the mountain 's sides. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration," this was the deadliest and most economically destructive volcanic event in the history of the United States".
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.
Would you like to donate materials to help us build a garden for Stone Canyon? Stone Canyon is a outdoor learning center and a summer camp. They have schools that come to Stone Canyon. They teach you about all sorts of things like nature,indians, pioneers and who used to live in Larkspur back in the old days. They would like to have a garden because a lot of people do not come there a lot so they would like to have a garden so people can buy some of the flowers and veggies, so more people come to Stone Canyon.
Introduction The Glass House Mountains are an iconic part of Queensland. There are fourteen mountains, however, twelve were volcanoes. This report contains information such as how the glass house mountains were formed and what types of rocks are found at the volcanoes. How were the glass house mountains thought to have formed?
The hot material deep within the surface of the Earth melts to produce magma beneath the Pacific Plate. Each of the volcanoes in the Hawaiian island chain go through a series of stages in their lifetime. In short, the shield stage, postshield stage, erosional stage, rejuvenated stage, coral atoll stage, and the guyot stage. The shield stage is divided into three phases, the submarine, explosive, and subaerial. Following the gentle explosions of the pre shield stage, the submarine phase begins with pillow lava eruptions.
Many science organizations have agreed that the probability of another super eruption is a low probability chances are quite slim with estimates being a minimum of 1 in 730,000. Technology has gotten better and scientists are better able to detect a possible eruption before it happens due to the many warnings that would appear. There are some warnings before volcanic eruptions occur such as multiple minor earthquakes, land uplift, gas releases through the many small holes which help relieve pressure. In an article by the NSF which stands for National Science Foundation scientists believe that another eruption wouldn’t occur for another 1-2 million years because based on research of its caldera cluster the volcano is undergoing its dying cycle rather than its ramping up cycle. The foundation states that “by studying the pattern behavior of the cycles and its previous eruptions by examining the rock minerals in the vicinity they’re given better clues to suggest the volcano is on its calm stage”.
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.
Second, Yellowstone doesn't have any volcanos above ground like Hawaii. The super volcano is under all the attractions. Yellowstone does get earthquakes frequently. When a earthquake hits that's high on Richter scale people fear that the super volcano could erupt, but the chances of it erupting are very low. To conclude, Yellowstone and Hawaii have geological activity, but you never know when a super volcano will
The volcano I pick was Mt Mauna Loa. This volcano has erupted about 32 times for the eruption of 1984. Mauna Loa is about 600,000- 1 million years old and hasn’t erupted as much as Kilauea and when it erupts it produces huge rivers of lava and threatens towns nearby. Mauna Loa is the second tallest volcano in the world. The elevation is 13,679 feet high.
The deeper source of Kilauea’s eruptions, as with all of Hawaii’s volcanoes is this mantle plume. It’s a blob of hot rock that has risen from the deep inside the Earth and is now torching the Earth’s crust. The mantle plume goes down to near 1,500 kilometers deep and is the biggest one yet that scientists have ever seen. The way the scientists found out how big this plume was by using an array of seismometers on the ocean floor. IV.
