Typical Eruption:
The typical type of eruption of Jabel Zubair is non-explosive. Jabel Zubair is a shield volcano, and the lava is not viscous. The volcano isn’t very tall and is very wide. The lava will flow out, and will cause the size of the island to expand. The eruption of Jabel Zubair is typical to the setting, near a divergent plate boundary.

(If zoomed in anymore, islands disappear)
Hazards:
There are no real hazards to humans, seeing as Jabel Zubair is in the middle of the Red Sea. The only hazard would be to wildlife, and to boats passing very near by, because Jabel Zubair is a shield volcano, so the lava would flow out, rather than be launched into the air. However, if there was human life on the island, there wouldn't be much of a chance of escape, if Jabel Zubair erupted. This is because the lava has low viscosity, and will flow very fast. Also, there wouldn’t be any space place on the island, seeing as it is very small, although this would make it easy to get to the sea, away from the lava.

Typical Eruption: (type your description below) – you may include an eruption map with citation (URL)
The last known eruption occurred in 2008. In 2007, a highly explosive eruption occurred. Before these recent years, Jabal at Tair erupted a few times in the 18th and 19th century. The 2007 eruption sent lava flows all over the north east part of the island. The eruption started in October but didn't completely end until November. A survivor stated that the eruption started with small earthquakes. Huge blasts occurred next that came with lava and rocks flying all over the place, even onto the people of the island. Lava flows and fire fountains were visible from where the people of the island were located. As the lava flows slowly and vibrantly made its way down the steep sides of this stratavolcano, ash and steam plumes hovered over the volcano. “Floating rafts” of ash and pumice floated on the top of the water along with tephra that floated into the water from the explosion.
Since the volcano holds basaltic lava and is known to be a stratovolcano, but really is actually a bit of both of the most popular volcanoes. It is a little bit of composite volcano and a little of shield volcano. Composite volcanoes have highly viscous lava where as shield volcanoes have lava that is low in viscous. This specific volcano took liking to the thicker volcano, for example, the time it took for the eruption in 2007 to finish and the lava to cool into the steep sides of the volcano. This volcano will not erupt again as long as there is little to no seismic pressure. Jabal at Tair is famous for the height the lava when exploding into the air along with the ash plumes. Just like the eruption started, Jabal at Tair, which means Bird Mountain Island, ended with several more somewhat minor earthquakes.

Hazards: (type your description below)
The explosive volcanic eruptions of Jabal at Tair have given off gases that cause suffocation. Since some of these gases could get to extreme measures, plant life could and have died before. The toxins given off by this volcano can lead to acid rain. Just by knowing that there have been explosive volcanic activity in past years, people around the volcano or in surrounding areas should take caution. In the 2007 eruption, several soldiers of Yemen have died while trying to swim away from the burning hot lava that trickled on their tales down the volcano and into the ocean. The island is unpopoulated except for a Yemeni naval base. The volcano has took down every building that was up and owned by the Yemeni coast guard. The lava from the volcano will and has tore down everything in its path, this is how the whole mishap of the missing soldiers occurred. Small heat increases have been detected during eruptions, that’s another thing that’s hazardous. Earthquakes occur after and before eruptions as well, that can do some great damage as well. Most the hazards of Jabal at Tair are normal hazards to look out for with normal volcanoes.

Typical Eruption: (type your description below) – you may include an eruption map with citation (URL) The type of eruption is unknown because nobody knows when it last erupted in all the websites I looked at. But the typical eruption for a regular eruption for a volcano is the volcano will smoke for a little while and then lava will explode from the top and the explosion might blow the top off the volcano like it did on Mount Saint Helens. Magma will blow out of the top and burn everything to the ground and kill thousands of people and the survivors will go home to see once used to be their house. But before all the lava will explode from the top it might smoke for a week or for a month. Some times the smoke is so thick that it will be twenty four hours. People and animals will not be able to breathe so the animals will suffocate and die so there is no meat for the town. The people will wear masks and they will not do any good so the people will die from suffocation. Then the whole town will be wiped out from that one volcano erupted. My volcano has never erupted in the history of man kind. If it would erupt it would only suffocate people because if the ash no one lives any where

Hazards: (type your description below) some of the hazards that come with living next to a volcano is like if erupted you could be burned by lava. The lava will catch every thing on fire and after that all the lava will forum into basaltic rock and all the houses in the town and everything will be burned to the ground and that is just one thing that is bad about living next to a big or small volcano just saying. Another down side to living next to a volcano is all the smoke has carbon dioxide that no mask will hold out for the time that the smoke is in the air. All the animals will die and their will be no meat and all the people in the town will be either dead or staving the people will have to move because the smoke will cover the town and it will be packed down and some times it is more than a foot thick, I head that one volcano had like eighteen feet of ash from the volcano and the hole city had to start over from the ground up and that ash was packed as hard as rock. If you don’t want to loose all your life savings you might not want to live in a town next to a volcano. Some other hazards that come to living next to a volcano are that you might get some earthquakes because of it being on a tectonic plate. The plates will move very slowly and cause a earthquake. Almost every fifty years and you can loose everything like your house and your car and a fire can break out from power lines coming down that will take out your house and their will be no belongings left for you or your kids if you and your family are still alive.
