This Why Files short article discusses some new research on Yellowstone Caldera, a giant volcanic hotspot in Wyoming. Rock has been remelted inside the caldera. Using highly sensitive techniques to extract data from almost microscopic zircon crystals, two geologists at the University of Wisconsin-Madison found that over the past 2 million years, the giant Yellowstone volcano erupted at 700,000-year ...

This resource presents three examples of lava domes, from Alaska, Japan, and Saudi Arabia, along with a 3D simulated view of Mt. St. Helens' lava dome. A diagram shows the progressive growth of Mt. St. Helens' lava dome from 1980 to 1983. A link leads to a thorough explanation of dome-collapse pyroclastic flows (nuee ardentes) and another leads to a numerical program of lava dome growth.

In this activity, students match photographs of igneous rocks with descriptions of their formation. There are also two teacher demonstrations that will help students to identify pumice and volcanic ash with graded bedding. Other pictures and descriptions are of breccia, columnar jointing in a basaltic lava flow, coarse grained granite, and phenocrysts in a porphyry. At the end of the activity students ...
