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.

This animation is an adaptation of part of a narrated video shown in the HoloGlobe exhibit at the Smithsonain Museum of Natural History and the Earth Today exhibit at the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum. The red triangles represent volcanic activity over a 36-year span. This animation is meant to be combined with a map of the earth, such as the Blue Marble imagery. Full description.

At this site, different kinds of eruptions are compared with Hawaiian eruptions. Students will learn that volcanoes can erupt from vents on their summits or flanks, eruptions interact with water in submarine environments as new islands form beneath glaciers and in crater lakes, and volcanic eruptions can be classified by the character of the eruption, including the following types: basaltic flood, ...

This beginning geophysics course is designed for geology majors. It provides a relatively rigorous and homework-intensive overview of the structure and evolution of the Earth and terrestrial planets, at a level higher than a descriptive geology class, but lower than the standard introduction to geophysics for seniors or first year graduate students. Demonstrations are presented with links to a variety ... Full description.

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 site covers the four main types of faults (not including growth faults): the normal fault, reverse fault, transcurrent (strike-slip) fault, and thrust fault. Animations show the type of movement for each different type of fault. There is a section on the initial stage of a landform, containing a diagram of a graben and horst system. Also included are photographs of fault scarps along Hebgen Lake, ... Full description.
