Volcano Monitoring Techniques
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 fifteen activities that range from kindergarten to the twelfth grade level and include required material and worksheets.
