This article discusses how hydrothermal vents are formed and why scientists monitor minute temperature changes around them. It details the writer's personal account of preparing temperature probes to be deployed for a year-long study, an explanation of deep sea vents and their hydrothermal nature, and why they seem to spew black smoke. The thermometers prepared by the writer help monitor the currents ... Full description.

In this lesson covers the evolution of a volcanic island from origin to erosion. Students will be able to determine the relative ages of the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands, given their position in the archipelago and why these islands are so much smaller than the main islands of the Hawaiian chain. They will discover that volcanic islands form over a hot spot on the ocean floor and that islands form ... Full description.

Huge advances in hurricane prediction have been made in recent years. This radio broadcast from the National Hurricane Center in Miami reports on the latest developments in hurricane science and technology, such as dropping canisters from aircraft, improvements in satellite images, and why it is still proving so difficult to predict the intensity of the storm. The clip is 3 minutes and 5 seconds in ... Full description.

In this radio broadcast, commentators discuss the remainder of the 2005 hurricane season in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, which was being called one of the worst natural disasters in U.S. history. Topics include how hurricanes form in Africa; how warmer than average water and lighter winds create ideal hurricane conditions; how global warming may be contributing to more frequent and intense hurricanes; ...

This module studies the hazards posed by Mount Rainier, a mainland volcano near Seattle, Washington. The lessons explain the geographical context of Mount Rainier, how people prepare for the worst near the volcano (including hazard area identification and emergency and evacuation plans), hazards from eruption (tephra fall, lava flow, and pyroclastic flow), and hazards without eruption (sector collapse, ...

This is the Student Page of an activity that teaches students how particle size affects the angle of a volcano's slope. This page has experiment procedures, a list of required materials, key words, a table in which to fill in the kind of particle, angle of repose, and the average particle size, and a graph of particle size versus the angle of repose. This activity is part of Exploring Planets in the ... Full description.

This site teaches students to determine how fluid a liquid really is by measuring its viscosity. The Teacher Page provides background information on viscosity and its relevance to volcanology (the viscosity of magma influences how it will behave in eruptions and lava flows), the formula for determining viscosity, an explanation of the experiment (procedures are on the Student Page), links to the Viscosity ...

This United States Geological Survey (USGS) fact sheet is designed to educate visitors about safety in preparation for visiting Kilauea Volcano in Hawaii. This volcano has been erupting almost continuously since 1983 and is noted for its approachable lava flows; however, it undergoes many changes that can be unpredictable and life threatening. Topics include volcanic hazards such as bench collapse, ... Full description.
