This resource presents three examples of lava domes, from Alaska, Japan, and Saudi Arabia, along with a 3D simulated view of Mt. St. Helens' lava dome. A diagram shows the progressive growth of Mt. St. Helens' lava dome from 1980 to 1983. A link leads to a thorough explanation of dome-collapse pyroclastic flows (nuee ardentes) and another leads to a numerical program of lava dome growth.

This module include four problem-based learning scenarios related to volcanoes and emphasize different kinds of volcanic hazards and geologic processes. The four scenarios are: whether to build a new high school in the shadow of a restless volcanic giant, Mt. Rainier; Kilauea in Hawaii shows signs of activity. What are the prospects for the nearby population?; Mt. Hood is starting to act like Mt. ... Full description.

This United States Geological Survey (USGS) publication discusses the historic and current monitoring of active volcanoes around the globe. Techniques to measure deviations in pressure and stress induced by subterranean magma movement, as well as other technologies, explain the ways in which researchers monitor and predict volcanoes. Case studies of volcanoes such as Mt. St. Helens, El Chichon, Mauna ... Full description.

This site describes volcanic landscapes, which contain diverse landforms such as edifices, calderas, and lava domes. The three main edifices are scoria cones, shield volcanoes, and stratovolcanoes. A chart shows the outline of each along with its composition and eruption type. The calderas described include Crater-Lake type calderas associated with the collapse of stratovolcanoes, basaltic calderas ... Full description.

This resource provides general information about volcanoes. It illustrates the growth of a volcano, using Paricutin and Mt. St. Helens as examples of an active volcano and a lava dome. The terms extinct and dormant are also discussed. This site provides an explanation of why and how volcanoes form, zones of subduction, mid-ocean ridges, and hot spots. Deadly dangers associated with eruptions are discussed ... Full description.
