Oku’s last eruption is. - UNKNOWN.
Oku is a Strato Volcano. Also can be called composite cones. Strato Volcanoes have, huge bumps that stick out of the steep sides. The sides build up when the volcano erupts and lava, tephra and pyroclastic rock build up. It takes a long time almost thousands of years for the pressure to make the volcanos erupt. There is many types of rock and lave that build up on the sides. The types of magma on the strato volcanoes are, basalt, andesite, dacite and rhyolite. The magma causes explosive eruptions, but the only one that does not is basalt. Many vents are in strato volcanoes. Some are shapes as sinder canes and some are domes. Located low on the sides of the volcano.

Stratocone volcanoes are generally high in silica, and are very viscous, which causes the lava to explosively erupt. Mount Kenya, however, although it is a stratocone volcano, isn’t explosive, because it is mostly made of basalt rock, which is a rock low in silica. Due to the low silica, it is low in viscosity, causing it to ooze instead of explode. Mount Kenya is found on a divergent boundary, which generally yields low viscosity volcanoes. This geologic setting is reflective of Mount Kenya’s viscosity.
Topographic Map (insert topographic map here) with citation (URL): http://www.earthtools.org/

RDTopo_Map.GIF
Hazards: (type your description below)
Mount Kenya is not near enough to any city to create hazards in case of eruption, and hasn’t erupted in so long it is considered to be extinct. Because it is extinct, there are no safeguards and nothing/no one monitoring of the mountain. General hazards include altitude sickness, hypothermia, animal stampedes (mainly buffalo and elephant), dehydration, and getting lost. If it did erupt, Mt. Kenya could cause a very small lahar. This is because it has ice caps at its peak, yet due to global climate change, they have all but completely melted. There is still, however, the possibility of a lahar. The lava could be an issue because, as shown in the contour map, the mountain is steeper on the side closer to the city, which is southwest of the volcano. The city is still over 80 kilometers away though.

Typical Eruption:

Mt. Pico’s eruptions are somewhat hazardous. In the last eruption, its explosive eruptions destroyed property and some homes of the local town’s people. Although the last eruption was almost 300 years ago, there was a volcanic eruption that was uncertain in 1963. But it is unconfirmed because it was a Submarine eruption.

Mt. Pico has a history of Submarine eruptions, so the likeliness of it having is a high chance.

Topographic Map:

Hazards:

Mt. Pico has explosive eruptions, so when it erupts it really erupts. And it is known for the damage upon the land, even in 1562(the first recorded data of this volcano) it was said to be very destructive.

But today people travel from all over the world to hike this marvelous volcano on this small island.

Typical Eruption: (type your description below) – you may include an eruption map with citation (URL)
I could not find the last known eruption or what is was like so I decided to just tell what a typical scoria/cinder cone volcano eruption is like.
The magma in a cinder volcano has a high amount of silica. This causes gases to be trapped in the magma. These gases build up pressure and cause the magma to be pushed towards the surface of the earth. When the magma reaches the surface it explodes out of the top of the volcano in a violent manner. This can cause lahars and pyroclastic flows. Ash also is thrown into the air when this happens. Because the magma has a high level of silica content it doesn’t flow very far. When the lava hardens it won’t have flown very far so it will harden on the side of the volcano. This is why cinder volcanoes are steep and not very wide.

Topographic Map (insert topographic map here) with citation (URL)
None was available

Hazards: (type your description below)
When a volcano erupts there are five main dangers:
  1. you could be covered by ash
  2. lava flow
  3. pyroclastic flow
  4. lahar

A pyroclastic flow is a mixture of ash and rock fragments mixed with hot gases.
It has a high density. Pyroclastic flows only occur with explosive eruptions and move away from the volcano’s vents at speeds up to 220 miles per hour. Pyroclastic flows have two parts:
  1. the lower flow consists of coarse fragments that move along the ground
  2. the upper flow is a turbulent cloud of ash

The lower part of the flow follows the topography of the volcano down the side of the volcano. The flows are very destructive because they destroy everything in their path.
Lahars are wet cement- like mixtures of water, mud and volcanic rock. Lahars flow down the side of volcanoes.

The lava would travel very fast because of the volcano’s steep sides so any viliges close by would not have a lot of time to evaquate. The lava is very runny so it adds to the danger and quickness of the lava. In past eruptons the volcano has shot rocks and thay have landed miles away. If one of thease rocks had landed on a person they would be killed instantly and the rocks were so hot that if they hit a building the building would catch on fire. Viliges would be buried in two to three feet of molten lava. Bolders would role down the side of the volcano crushing people and houses. The erouption would be devastating to any people who lived within a two mile radeas of the volcano hundreds of people would die. But lucky for us it is extinct and in the middle of the saraha dessert.

The Typical Eruption for Fogo the volcano is when the lave flows out the sides most of

the time. Its an exploding volcano which means that it doesn’t just dribble out the top it

litteraly blows its top. In addition to that a huge cloud of ash was blown into the sky.

Every time fogo erupts it has earthquakes before it actulay erupts. Six days before.


During the eruption the volcano makes lava bombs. Every 3-8 seconds there was a very

loud mini explosion of gas. Along with the explosions some parts of the cone may fall

off . Fogo has historic-aged lava that goes into the water around it.

So to some up a little First there is some earth quakes before the actual erution. Then

theres the erution witch will nomally blow its top. Remember it doesn’t just dribble it

blows right up. Along with the ginormous cloud of ash that was relased into the sky.

And don’t for get about the lava bombs. And of course the caving-in cone.

was a lot of ash in the air. Sufficating all kinds of people and probably animals. The

Earth quakes are also a big hazard that effects everybody around them. And theVolcano I

guess has some effect in the hazards of harming people.

Typical Eruption: My volcano is a Strato/Composite, it is a explosive eruption. It is set on a convergent plate, which is the African plate. It is not near an Ocean, a tsunami is not a hazard. The shape is steep and large, and is made of alternating layers of tephra and lava. The explosive eruptions are due to andesitic magma, which is high in gas and silica. Some eruptions are minor+flow easily (thin lava with less silica) and other eruptions are explosive (viscous lava with more silica.)

Hazards: Made of both thin and thick lava. Some eruptions are minor and flow easily (thin lava with less silica.) Other eruptions are explosive (viscous lava with more silica.)You don’t know when it is going to be a minor eruption or explosive eruption. It is on a convergent plate which is the African plate. A tsunami is not a hazard because it is not close enough to the ocean. The population is very rural, not many people at all. People are not a hazard.
