Typical Eruption: (type your description below) – you may include an eruption map with citation (URL) The typical eruption would be an explosive eruption. It has had frequent eruptions but not one sense 1967. The type of lava coming out is andesite. The name is derived from the Andes moutains. Andesitic rock is common for subduction zones. It is an intermediate igneous rock which means it contains 52-63% SiO2. This means it has medium viscosity so it flows somewhat. The gas inside would build up and become very high pressure and cause and explosion. Then, explosive ash is formed but magma blown up. Fallon de Pajaros also has submarine vents in the ocean where lava could flow through and an eruption could occur. This could cause rock debris and steam to fly above the water.

Hazards: (type your description below)
This is an explosive volcano so ash could spew to other islands and cover land with ash. This could affect planes or any other flying vehicles. An eruption could also cause a tsunami and could be devastating to other islands that wouldn’t have time to prepare for them. Lots of mass from the volcano could cause huge ocean waves. Global temperatures could change by the amount of ash and gas sent into the stratosphere.

Setting:
Catarman
Date of Last Eruption:
1948-1952
Type of Last Eruption:
Pelean
Detailed map (insert detailed map here) with citation (URL)KWDetailed.jpg
Typical Eruption: Pelean: Short time of lots of steams coming out. Then an explosion of steam, ash, and other materials shot out. More steam goes out and occasional minor crateral outbursts that may reach up to 90 meters and 100 feet per second! These can last hours or even days! The eruption plume will tower over all from the huge amount tephra dumping into surrounding areas. This may travel for miles depending on the height of the eruption and the wind strength during the eruption. The lava will kill all in its path but will fertilize the soil for future plants to grow. The steam slows down and all other eject a do to. After an hour or so the eruption is over but the flowing lave may have not hardened. So be safe and evacuate when told.

Typical Eruption: (type your description below) – you may include an eruption map with citation (URL) Its typical eruption causes pyroclastic flows that in turn created lahars. Its eruption is highly explosive and spews ash into the sky. Since the lava is very viscous it doesn’t travel at any record distances but has had some close encounters with the temple that was built atop of the volcano. The mud that is caused by the lahars can cause quite a bit of trouble for the temples that are placed around the volcano.

Hazards: (type your description below)
The lahars in its eruption were caused by the pyroclastic flows. The eruption that this volcano had caused the air to be filled with ash that fell from the sky for quite a long time after the volcano erupted which resulted in heavy layers of ash on top of the land that was already covered in mud from the lahars. If someone were to live nearby they would have to withstand any lahars that might be triggered by the pyroclastic flows from the volcano. After dodging the mud they would have to deal with the choking hazard of the ash that quickly falls onto the ground that the lahars already polverised. The lava in my volcano was very viscous and the lava has only become an actual danger a few times when it would travel within mere yards of one of the temples built atop of the volcano.
