ABernierDetailed.GIF
Typical Eruption:
- The typical eruption style is effusive. The eruption lasts awhile, last eruption was in 1975-1984. It involved nine volcanic eruptions and fifteen uplift and subsidence events. The 1984 eruption had the total area covered by lava, with 36 km and the volume about 0.25-0.3 km³. Before that 1724-1729. It has erupted 29 times. Temperatures reach around 340 degrees C. 18 Eruptions have happened here. It’s believed to be about 100,000 years old. Learning from the eruption history, it’s believed another eruption or rifting episode will happen at the end of this century. An eruption or rifting episode is expected once every century for Krafla. Rock types are olivine, tholeiite and rhyolite. Basalt is a major part of Krafla. The definition of Basalt is: A hard, dense, dark volcanic rock composed chiefly of plagioclase, pyroxene, and olivine, and often having a glassy appearance. It's usually fine-grained.

Hazards:
- Krafla hasn't killed anyone on record, but has ruined three farms close to Reykjahlio. If this volcano had more cities or towns nearby, it would have many hazards. Hazards include lava, ash, gases, volcanic earthquakes, blasts, avalanches, landslides, and tsunamis. It could destroy homes, buildings and kill people. Thankfully, this volcano has not caused much damage. To help people near high risk volcanoes, volcano hazards program helps monitor the volcanoes to warn people. This can help people everywhere near volcanoes to feel safer. In the past 500 years, over 200,000 people have lost their lives due to volcanic eruptions. Much more deaths happened before that due to volcano activity because people didn’t know when they would erupt, how to get to safety quickly and living too close to volcanoes. This volcano can still erupt, but since no one is nearby it is not that dangerous. People living near volcanoes need to know the high risks, and take precautions towards this.

Typical Eruption: (type your description below) – you may include an eruption map with citation (URL) : A typical Kluichevskoi eruption is very common (they occur very frequently). Most of the time an eruption will be very explosive, causing lahars and mudslides. The volcano produces basalt magma that is very high in silica, the reason for the explosive eruptions. During an explosive eruption, the high silica magma does not flow easily, and causes great pressure to build, eventually exploding with great force.

Topographic Map (insert topographic map here) with citation (URL):

Hazards: (type your description below): Because Kluichevskoi is located in Siberia,there are no actual threats to people, as Siberia is sparsely populated. However, if Kluichevskoi was located in a populated place, ash plumes could block out the sun, and while the magma would not flow far, if cities or towns were near the edge of the volcano they could be destroyed completely by rock and magma that would burn the place to the ground.

http://www.volcano.si.edu/world/volcano.cfm?vnum=0104-02-
My volcano is dormant, but it’s typical eruption was full of andesitic and dacitic lava, which was due to a large amount of silica in the magma. This means the lava is lighter. This would cause a larger, more explosive eruption than a flowing, oozing eruption. Back when this volcano could erupt, (several thousand years ago) there were no major municipalities near the area, so major life loss was not a cause for concern. Due to the thickness of the Magma, explosive eruptions were most common.

IPkazbekmp.gif

Hazards: (type your description below)
As a large, conical volcano with glaciers on top, mudslides (known as lahars) during eruptions were massive risks. Seeing as the technology was non-existent during the last eruption, nothing could be done about this. The lava was rocky and thick, therefore did not flow far or very fast. Lava was not a threat, but ash was. With especially large eruptions, ash could block out the sun for weeks at a time. Pressure would build up in the volcano due to the thickness of the magma and eruptions would be extremely explosive.

A eruption is when a volcano is ready to blow. It starts to growl and then it sometimes starts to let out smoke. Sooner or later it blows. Hot winds and smoke fill the air with fire. Black smoke/fire go up into the air. And magma goes flowing down the sides of the side of the volcano. Lots of land and houses are destroyed. Leaving people with no were to live.

Hazards: (type your description below)
Houses are being destroyed and leaving people with no were to live. Some child and adults are died because they are covered under the rock/lava. Trees are taking down by strong winds and fire magma. This can destroy a lot of places. If volcanoes have snow on the top of it and it starts to erupt the snow will mix with the rocks and mud, making a big and some times unstopped mud side. Then that leaves you with the magma/lava coming down.

BBDetailed.jpg
Typical Eruption: (type your description below) – you may include an eruption map with citation (URL) A typical explosive eruption usually happens very sudden and the outcome is very frightening. What basically causes an explosive eruption is for some time; the magma inside of the volcanic neck of the volcano will harden inside and build up the pressure of the lava inside the volcano. Once the volcano reaches its breaking point the eruption will be far more violent and terrifying and the pyroclastic rocks will be blown up to 20 km. The lava that comes out of the volcano at this time is extremely viscous. A volcano like Porak that is the youngest volcano of its volcanic ridge had to be extremely explosive just because of the size of it and its surroundings. Porak’s last eruption occurred at 778 BC, allegedly during a military battle dated to 782-773 BC. There is another name for Porak; some people refer to it in a cuneiform inscription as Mount Bamni. Next to Porak is a small lake called Lake Alagyol and when the volcano erupts the lava flows into the lakes and forms a peninsula when the lava hardens.


Topographic Map (insert topographic map here) with citation (URL)

BBtopo.gif

Hazards: (type your description below) The hazards would be that Porak is a explosive volcano so that means that when it erupts that it sends pieces of rock and and lava flying miles. The soot would cover a lot of area and that would be extremely dangerous to get caught in all of that. Also around this area there are several fissures spread out across the volcanic field that are blocked off with street cones and fissure vents.

A typical eruption you would get from a stratovolcano would be very explosive.
The crater pipe (or vent) gets “clogged” with extremely viscous magma. Pressure from the gas builds up and eventually releases. However, most eruptions from a stratovolcano are near silent until the last moment. It comes to my attention that this type of volcano would be compiled of ash and lava. (Rocks formed would be bumpy)

www.Earthtools.org
Hazards: (type your description below) If it were to explode….
The hazards of a stratovolcano are very serious for anyone caught too close. But since the magma can’t travel very fast (because of its viscosity), there is no immediate threat if you see it tumbling down the mountain.
However, this particular volcano has vents on the side, so it is highly unlikely an eruption will occur.

Seeing as Taftan hasn’t had an eruption in 10 thousand years but it would have a generic explosive reaction, lots of ash and lave, because of Taftans lava type and elevation it’s very hard for gas to escape. Creating a great danger of gas clouds that can float down into nearby towns, also there is a good chance of lahars because of the elevation and the heat on the ground. So in the event of an eruption the nearby town would get evacuated as the volcano would start to erupt, later the volcano would explode with rhyolite. Taftan is old enough and explosive enough for scientists to think that it used to be on a subduction zone.

Typical Eruption: (type your description below) – you may include an eruption map with citation (URL)
The typical eruption for the Stromboli volcano is small bursts about every 20 minutes. Occasionally the volcano will produce an eruption with a full eruptive column. This volcano has been erupting(spiting lava) constantly for hundreds of years. Stromboli produces small amounts of flowing lava if any at all. This volcanoes lava is pasty and its is basaltic. When the high gas pressure builds up it causes the lava to blast. Stromboli eruptions may be loud but they are NOT more dangerous because they are loud. During the eruptions the volcano spits out bomb size pieces of rocks. Stromboli eruptions are usually full of Scoria fragments. As the fragments move they gather around the vent to shape the volcano.

Hazards: (type your description below)
Some hazards of Stromboli is falling pyroclasts. In the past a number of people have been killed from falling pyroclasts. On Aug. 26, 1999 Stromboli had a strong explosion creating brush and forest fires injuring over 10 people. During another strong explosion light ash fell on Stromboli village. Ash fell also on Ginosta Village after a very large explosion. So even though Stromboli isn’t the most explosive volcano in the world it still has many dangers and hazards.

Typical Eruption: (type your description below) – you may include an eruption map with citation (URL) The Typical Eruption of Mt. Ararat is explosive. Therefore Mt. Ararat is near plate boundary and has dark lava and low silica. The typical eruption of a powerful explosive volcano starts with a fine-grained ash coming out of the volcanoes crater. After, pryoclastic flows made up out of hot volcanic gases and rock run down the side of the volcano around speeds as great seven hundred kilometers an hour, or four hundred miles an hour. The flows can reach temperatures around one thousand degrees Celsius, or one thousand eight hundred and thirty degrees Fahrenheit. Then ends with a lava flow that can vary between seven hundred degrees and one thousand two hundred degrees Celsius, or between one thousand three hundred and two thousand two hundred degrees Fahrenheit, in temperature.

Hazards: (type your description below)
There are no hazards from my volcano because it has been dormant since 1840, though there is active carbon dioxide coming from the volcano. If it was active these would be the hazards of it. Gas, gas can pose great threats to people and animals. The gases that come from a volcano when it erupts can suffocate all humans and animals. Sulfur Dioxide can make acid rain and kill farmer’s crops and other vegetation. Also the gases can get into the O-zone and deplete it. Lahars, lahars can also cause some trouble. Lahars are either hot or cold mixtures of rocks and water. They speed down the river valleys close to the volcanoes and pick up trees and boulders and other debris that could flatten a house in seconds. Landslides, landslides can be very dangerous; they start out as rocks and soil and speed down the sides of volcanoes picking up more and more debris. They can go for long distances and can be huge. Lava Flows, lava flows are flows of very hot molten rock. Though they are not as fast as Lahars and Landslides, their speed varies depending on the terrain, they destroy everything in their path. Pyroclastic Flows, pyroclastic flows are very fast, very hot flows made up out of rocks and gas that destroy nearly everything in its path. (More information in Typical Eruption). Tephras, tephras are basically ash that is shot up into the sky from the eruption. They vary in size. The bigger pieces fall back down to earth and the smaller pieces get carried up into the sky and land thousands of miles away. Areas near the volcano get covered in ash. Too much ash can be suffocating. The ash can kill all the vegetation and crops so there is food for the livestock and other animals so they die off and then the humans are left hungry. Also if ash keeps piling on top of building it becomes very heavy and the building could collapse.

Typical Eruption: (type your description below) – you may include an eruption map with citation (URL)
This volcano has not erupted for over 1000 years, but if it did it would be pretty bad because it is a lava dome volcano, that means it erupts explosively. It would send ash clouds and acid rain high into the sky. That means that many people and plants could suffocate. Also there are 32 lava domes in this volcano so a ton of lava could come out of the crater at the top. The lava could fly very far, because the lava is very viscous. This means it is dark, has low silica content and has a very strong internal resistance to flow. That means that the lava can’t easily flow out of the top of the volcano and it builds up pressure. All at once that pressure is released and the lava goes with it. It violently blows the top of the volcano off and spews lava everywhere. That would create very hot (1300-2200) degrees F, lava flows. The lava flows would not get very far because the volcano is on a very small island and it would just flow into the ocean.

Hazards: (type your description below)
There are no hazards because this volcano has not erupted in over 1000 years. But if it was still an active volcano it could be very bad because there are 32 lava domes in this volcano. The ash would fly high into the sky and block the sunlight from getting to people, animals, and plants. This means that the price of food would rise and it would be tougher to live. It wouldn’t destroy very many houses though, because it is on its own little island. Also the gasses that escape from volcanoes can be very deadly to people and animals. Carbon monoxide is a killer.

Typical Eruption: (type your description below) – you may include an eruption map with citation (URL)
The most recent eruption occurred in 2000. It was a highly explosive eruption. The lava was thick – high in silica – and the pressure built up behind the lava until it exploded with a bang. The top of the volcano was most likely shattered by the force. Earthquakes apparently preceded the eruption. A very tall column of steam also came along with the eruption, and there was visible fire. Several small pyroclastic flows accompanied the eruption, which lasted for twelve days.
Hekla is located on a spreading center. The plates are moving away from each other, and volcanoes are popping up in between. Hekla is one of these volcanoes. Basalt is the type of rock produced by eruptions in Iceland, but Hekla produces a different type of rock – basaltic andesite. The reason for this is unknown. The types of volcanoes that occur on divergent plate boundaries are low-silica, non-explosive eruptions, but Hekla is a high-silica, explosive eruption. Hekla does not “fit the mold.” It is not the typical divergent plate boundary volcano.

Hazards: (type your description below)
Hekla is located inland. In Iceland, basically all the towns are near the coast, so there are no nearby settlements. However, if people in Iceland actually lived near enough to the volcano, then the following could be some of the problems they encounter.
Pyroclastic flows often accompany this type of explosive eruption. These mixtures of ash, rock, and gas are very dangerous, destroying everything in their path. Even just plain ash can be a problem. It can collapse roofs and cause breathing problems.
Earthquakes preceded the most recent eruption, which could have destroyed homes, and/or caused injury or death in any nearby town.
Lahars could also be triggered by an eruption from Hekla. There is quite a bit of snow and ice on Hekla, which would melt, and could flood or bury a nearby town with mud.
The lava itself could be a potential hazard. Although it is very viscous and people would have time to get out of the way, it could still flow into a village. The village would have to be very close to the volcano though, as thick lava doesn’t move that far.
Earthquakes would indicate an eruption, but if the people didn’t pick up on that clue, the volcano is monitored. It is the largest volcano out of many in the country. Scientists regularly go to study the volcano – taking samples of rock among other things. An eruption would not come entirely as a surprise.
FUN FACTS !!!!!
People SKI on Hekla! There are actually expeditions that lead to the volcano, and they ski on it!

The shield cone produces oozing lava that can travel for miles from the vent, which means that the lava as low viscosity, this lava that flows out from the cone and flows down the sides which after hundreds and thousands of eruptions, create a new thick layer; each single eruption creates smaller layers.
