Comment on this resource
Major volcanic eruptions alter the Earth's radiative balance, as volcanic ash and gas clouds absorb terrestrial radiation and scatter a significant amount of the incoming solar radiation, an effect known as "radiative forcing" that can last from two to three years following a volcanic eruption. This results in reduced temperatures in the troposphere, and changes in atmospheric circulation patterns. ... Full description.

In this mathematical activity, students learn why a tectonically-active area of the globe is called "The Ring of Fire" by examining a data map differentiating shield volcanoes, cinder cones, and stratovolcanoes and calculating the percentage of active volcanoes that are contained within this region. The resource is part of the teacher's guide accompanying the video, NASA Why Files: The Case of the ... 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.
