This site introduces the several methods geologists use to monitor changes in a volcano. These methods assist in forecasting intrusions and eruptions and consist of ground movements, seismicity, gas geochemistry, and geology. As a result of this lesson, students will realize that eruptions have precursor activities, recognize patterns in volcano behavior, and interpret graphical data. This site includes ...

This web site illustrates and describes damage from a tragic lahar triggered by rainfall on Casita Volcano, an inactive cone of San Cristobal Volcano, northwestern Nicaragua. When the side of Casita Volcano collapsed on October 30, 1998, more than 2,000 people were killed within minutes as a large lahar swept over the towns of El Porvenir and Rolando Rodriguez. Links are also available to a photoglossary ... Full description.
