Comment on this resource
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.

This glossary of terms is specific to the discussion of volcanoes. It contains terms such as aa (a type of lava), and silicic (a term used to describe silica-rich volcanic rock or magma). Many of the terms not only have definitions, but serve as active links to sites with additional information about the term. Full description.

This United States Geological Survey (USGS) on-line publication covers the volcanic history of the Lassen Volcanic National Park area in California. This includes information about identifying hazardous volcanic processes in Lassen (ash falls, basaltic lava flows) and studying non-eruptive hazards (rockfalls, landslides). Details about the prospect of future eruptions and monitoring for volcanoes, ... Full description.

In this Web-based, interactive story, Tutangiaq (Too-tang-geye-ack - nicknamed 2T), a Canada Goose, flies across Alaska looking for his family. As he flies, he tells students about the 49th state. Students learn several facts about the state, including how Alaska was purchased from the Russians,. They can also compare the size of Alaska to other states. 2T takes a flight across the volcanic chain ... Full description.

In 1986 the eruption of Kilauea Volcano changed from the episodic fountaining of lava and gas at Pu`u O`o cone every few weeks to the continuous outpouring of lava from a new vent only 3 kilometers away. The volcano began releasing a large, steady supply of sulfur dioxide gas into the atmosphere. During the episodic activity, enough time had elapsed between fountaining episodes for the prevailing ...

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 page describes the lahars that swept down the Drift River Valley during the 1989-90 eruption of Redoubt Volcano, Alaska, and the testing of a new experimental detection and warning system designed to track lahars and debris flows and to give warning to people downstream. In this case, an oil-storage facility in the Cook Inlet area was at risk. The seismometers used (acoustic-flow monitors) ... Full description.

This United States Geological Survey (USGS) website covers general information about lahars and their effects on areas surrounding volcanoes. Information given includes a description of lahars, what triggers a lahar, and the economic and environmental damage they inflict. Links to USGS websites documenting specific lahar case studies are found throughout the page. Full description.

This homework exercise, which builds on knowledge gained in previous homework exercises located at the same site, asks students in an undergraduate class at Tulane University to answer some basic questions about volcanoes, and to determine the volcanic hazards associated with Mt. Rainier, Washington; Montserrat, West Indies; and Long Valley Caldera, California by searching the World Wide Web. Full description.
