This resource provides information about variances in size and explosiveness of volcanoes that have erupted during the past 10,000 years. Included is a table showing that small eruptions are more frequent than larger ones. A feature of this site is the introduction of a scheme for estimating the magnitude of historic eruptions, called the Volcanic Explosivity Index (VEI). Historical eruptions can ... Full description.

This page describes the different types of calderas: Crater-Lake type calderas, which are associated with the collapse of stratovolcanoes; basaltic calderas, which result from the summit collapse of shield volcanoes; and resurgent calderas, which lack an association with a single centralized vent. Each type is described in detail with photographs, maps, diagrams, and examples. Multiple links lead ... Full description.

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 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.
