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.

This article discusses the idea of 'hot spot' volcanoes, those not associated with plate tectonic boundaries, but rather with relatively stationary sources of heat energy (thermal plumes) in the mantle. Topics include the development of the theory by Canadian geophysicist J. Tuzo Wilson; the mechanics of volcanism over a hot spot as seen in the Hawaiian Islands; ancient Hawaiian observations of the ... Full description.

This resource about Mount Rainier, a stratovolcano in the Cascade Range, features links to all aspects of the volcano, including its geographic setting, and geologic and eruptive history. Students learn that Mount Rainier is the highest and third-most voluminous volcano in the Cascades and that it dominates the Seattle-Tacoma area, where more than 1.5 million know it fondly as The Mountain. Also, ... Full description.

These activities pertain to the value of the different types of images, including a false color mosaic, a Compressed Stokes image, a vegetation map and key, and various ground photographs. Students are given specific directions on how to decide what features of a radar image indicate such structures as upland forest, clear-cut areas, and roads. In a second activity, students look at the radar images ... Full description.
