This online simulator lets students observe what happens to volcanic eruptions as the silica content of the magma changes. Operating a slider changes the percentage of silica, and the display shows the rock type, type of eruption, and type of volcanic edifice. It also displays temperature, pressure, viscosity of the lava, and seismic activity. A brief tutorial describes how to use the simulator and ... Full description.

The New Millenium Observatory is a seafloor observatory off the coast of Oregon, which studies the relationships between submarine volcanic events and the chemistry and distribution of hydrothermal vents and the biologic communities that depend on them. This website is a multimedia presentation of the ongoing research at Axial volcano. The NeMO Explorer page offers several virtual tours, which allow ... Full description.

This activity is an active simulation of an explosive volcanic eruption. The model volcano is a plastic 35 mm film cannister that erupts (the lid blows off) when gas pressure generated by dissolving alka seltzer is sufficiently high. It is realistic in that the timing of the eruption is difficult to predict precisely and in that the eruption occurs when the pressure of the gas exceeds the confining ... Full description.

Comment on this resource
Major volcanic eruptions alter the Earth's radiative balance, as volcanic ash and gas clouds absorb terrestrial radiation and scatter a significant amount of the incoming solar radiation, an effect known as "radiative forcing" that can last from two to three years following a volcanic eruption. This results in reduced temperatures in the troposphere, and changes in atmospheric circulation patterns. ... Full description.

This is the Teacher Page of an activity that teaches students how and why magma moves inside volcanoes by injecting colored water into a clear gelatin cast. Activity preparation instructions are on the Student Page, while the Teacher Page has background, preparation, and in-class information. An extension activity has the students repeat the experiment using a square bread pan to simulate the original ... Full description.

Eruption! is a volcanic crisis simulation model that showcases a series of villages that surround an active volcano and is part of the Interactive Models for Geological Education Online (IMGEO) series. The goal of the exercise is to preserve as many people and as much property as possible in spite of the threat from the volcano. Students role-play as villagers, the governor, volcanologists, and the ... Full description.

These interactive simulations allow students to investigate four of nature's more violent phenomena: volcanoes, earthquakes, hurricanes, and tornadoes. Each simulation begins with a brief written tutorial describing the characteristics and destructive potential of these hazards. Users may then adjust the various factors affecting the occurrence of these phenomena (for instance, ocean temperature, ... Full description.

This page contains information about Mt. Saint Helens, a volcano in Washington State which had remained silent for 120 years and came to life on May 18, 1980. The site has a question and answer section with Jim Webster, a volcanologist with the American Museum of Natural History. It also includes an activity called Rock Candy Experiment - Crystals You Can Eat in which students make rock candy to simulate ... Full description.

This site describes the variability of eruption types, from quiescent lava emissions to extremely violent and explosive events. Eruption variability is largely related to magma composition and the amount of water present. Types of eruptions discussed include fissure and Hawaiian eruptions, which are characterized by fire fountains and lava lakes, strombolian eruptions as exemplified by Paricutin in ...
