This report provides an overview of the changes that occurred in lakes in the region around Mount St. Helens following the eruption of May 18, 1980. Topics include water chemistry, sediment supply, and biology. Other factors which are discussed include the proximity of lakes to the volcano, and whether they were situated in the blast zone or simply received ashfall from the eruption. Links to related ...

Through an electronic peer review assignment, students write a general summary of major hazards to humans in the vicinity of volcanoes. Then, students are provided a list of volcanoes and must choose one to determine what actions they would take to minimize the risks to a population. This activity is detailed on this Starting Point site, which includes its learning goals, context for use, teaching ... Full description.

These aerial photography and satellite images show in detail extreme weather such as hurricanes and tornadoes, and violent upheavals of the Earth in the form of earthquakes and volcanoes, which often bring misery and destruction. They are all expressions of a living planet, still changing after billions of years of existence. Satellites help scientists understand the forces behind natural catastrophes ... Full description.

This United States Geological Survey (USGS) website explains volcanic gases and their effects on the Earth and its life. The report discusses gases trapped in magma below the Earth's surface as the driving force of volcanic eruptions. Types of gases, such as sulfur dioxide and carbon dioxide, and their potential effects are described. A comparison of volcanic gas composition in three different volcano ... Full description.

This interactive online exhibit provides an hour-by-hour account of the eruption of Vesuvius and its effects on the cities of Pompeii, Herculaneum, and other towns surrounding the volcano. Much of this reconstruction of the events surrounding the eruption is based on the accounts of Pliny the Younger, as detailed to the historian Tacitus. The account is accompanied by an interactive timeline detailing ... 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.
