This web page describes the lahars that swept down the Drift River Valley during the 1989-90 eruption of Redoubt Volcano, Alaska, and the testing of a new experimental detection and warning system designed to track lahars and debris flows and to give warning to people downstream. In this case, an oil-storage facility in the Cook Inlet area was at risk. The seismometers used (acoustic-flow monitors) ... Full description.

This resource defines and describes composite volcanoes, stratovolcanoes, subduction-zone volcanoes and composite cones. The information is from different sources and therefore the site gives a broad picture of these forms. The shape of the volcano is described as a function of the type and frequency of eruption and its proximity to plate boundaries. Full description.

The focus of this activity is on the sequence of lava flows produced by multiple eruptions. Baking soda, vinegar, and play dough are used to model fluid lava flows. Various colors of play dough identify different eruption events. Students will be asked to observe where the flows travel, make a model, and interpret the stratigraphy. Full description.
