This text and accompanying video describe Yellowstone National Park, the site of a 'hot spot' that runs from Earth's mantle to its crust, producing nearly 10,000 geothermal features, all heated by underground lava reservoirs. Topics include some of these features (geysers, mudpots, steam vents), and a discussion of how cold rainwater seeps downward to become superheated and laden with dissolved minerals. ...

This article, entitled Mountains of Fire, describes the relationship between the types of volcanic activity and plate movement and the connection between types of volcanoes and how they erupt. The article is supported by a video of an erupting volcano, a photograph of an eruption and an animation depicting pyroclastic flow and the formation of a composite volcano. It is also supported by three sidebars, ... Full description.
