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.

This site describes volcanic features comparable to those on Earth that are particularly well exposed on Earth's Moon, Mars, Venus, and the Jovian moon, Io. It discusses the most stunning discoveries of the last decade, which are the great variety of spectacular volcanic features displayed by radar imagery of Venus, and the dramatic discovery of perennial eruptions on Jupiter's satellite Io. For each ... Full description.

This site describes where volcanoes are found in terms of plate tectonics and explains why they occur at those locations. S map shows that volcanoes are located mainly at plate boundaries. Then there are explanations for plate motion, mantle convection, and magma generation. The three types of plate boundaries are listed as divergent, convergent, and transform. There is also information about the ... Full description.

The rocks of the Mohawk and Hudson Valleys of upstate New York tell a fascinating story, both through the rock layers themselves, as well as the life contained within them. Each individual outcrop, while interesting in many ways, pales in comparison to the story that unfolds when many of the units are compared and contrasted regionally. What comes to the surface is a story of tropical seas, violent ... Full description.

Comment on this resource
Since the Hawaiian Islands were all created by volcanic activity, it is somewhat surprising that only the island of Hawaii now possesses any active volcanoes. Why did the volcanoes that built the other islands stop erupting and why are those on the big island still active? This video segment, adapted from a NOVA television broadcast, shows how plumes of hot material rise from the Earth's interior ... Full description.

This web page guides the user through the Pacific Mountain System geologic province, one of the most geologically young and tectonically active in North America. The generally rugged, mountainous landscape of this province, which includes parts of Washington, Oregon, and California, provides evidence of ongoing mountain-building. One map shows the plate tectonic setting of the Pacific Mountain System ... Full description.
