This information about major volcanic eruptions in history covers events from the civilization-destroying explosion at Santorini in about 1630 BC, to the killing cloud of carbon dioxide at Lake Nyos Cameroon in 1986. The site documents the seven deadliest eruptions in history. Other eruptions include Mount Pelee on the island of Martinique in 1902, Mount Saint Helens in Washington State in 1980, Nevado ...

The most profound deformational event involving the interaction of lithospheric plates is a collision between continents; for example, the collision of the Indian continent with the Eurasian continent, which began in the Eocene. This continuing collision has produced intracontinental thrust sheets responsible for the highest mountains in the world. Mount Everest, the Annapurna Range, and the rest ... 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.

This lesson explores plate tectonics and helps students understand how mountains, earthquakes, and volcanoes are related to the movements of plates. Students will learn about the idea of continental drift and the theory of plate tectonics to ascertain a fuller picture of how land formations on the surface of the Earth are shaped by plates moving below the surface.

In this textbook chapter, students are introduced to the study of tectonics through an exploration of the 1980 eruption of Mt. St. Helens, including an interview with geomorphologist Dr. Danny Vaughn, Indiana State University. The flow of energy, convection, in the Earth's mantle is discussed and connected to earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and the movement of the Earth?s plates. The resource includes ... Full description.

Part of Prentice Hall's Planet Diary, this computer activity covers volcanic activity. Students research the most recent volcanic activity and the locations and names of each volcano. They then find out which tectonic plates the volcanoes are located on or if they are hot spots, and if any are part of the Ring of Fire. Full description.
