This site introduces the several methods geologists use to monitor changes in a volcano. These methods assist in forecasting intrusions and eruptions and consist of ground movements, seismicity, gas geochemistry, and geology. As a result of this lesson, students will realize that eruptions have precursor activities, recognize patterns in volcano behavior, and interpret graphical data. This site includes ...
