Typical Eruption: (type your description below) – you may include an eruption map with citation (URL)

The Lascar Volcono in Chile is a Stratovolcano. These types of volcanoes typically have explosive eruptions. The eruptions usually blow part of the mountain off, and send ash, smoke, and debris high into the air. Also, lava flows slide down the mountain sides and can travel great distances. Lava or magma may also be propelled into the air due to the explosive power or the eruption.

Hazards: (type your description below)

Volcanic eruptions can be very hazardous. The debris that is propelled into the air could scatter miles around the mountain, and come down on anything. The ash in the air can cover a vast area as well and is not good to breathe. Too much ash intake could possibly suffocate you. Along with these things, lava flows can travel great distances, and incinerate anything in their path. Volcanoes could be considered very large bombs. You do not want to be near them when they erupt.

Hazards: (type your description below) Lahars have a reputation of leveling entire towns, Mud slides Have killed thousands through drowning and crushing people it often mixes with a rockslide and ca be catastrophic; if in the path of a mudslide with a rockslide it could be strong enough to crush a town and bury it, pyroclastic flows exteremely hot gasses light the brains on fire of anyone who gets hit it can also trigger a lahar and mudslides by melting glaciers it is often the most dangerous part of a volcano eruption, and all around destruction the explosion with enough force to move the glaciers on top of it the explosion triggers everything it can destroy an entire mountain with a force that dwarf any man made weapon.

Typical Eruption: (type your description below) – you may include an eruption map with citation (URL)
A typical explosive eruption happens suddenly and with a colossal power. The most recent eruptions from El Misti were pyroclastic. Explosive eruptions occur when magma cools to make lava plug a crater. Explosive volcanoes usually construct steep cones of volcanic ash. They sometimes erupt suddenly without warning before there is anything anyone can do. The lava flows fast down the sides of the mountain and for some there is no chance to escape. El Misti is a stratovolcano which means the volcano has alternating layers of lava and debris from eruptions, like pyroclastic flows and ash.

Hazards: (type your description below)
Volcanic eruptions are one of Earth’s most violent hazards. Some people are planning on building developments on the volcanic side of the mountain. The city, Arequipa, is only 10.5 miles from the summit of the volcano. Some hazards, such as landslides, can cause casualties even if the volcano is not erupting. People who live farther away from volcanoes are likely to be affected by flooding, ash, and tephra. Sometimes, tiny droplets of liquid sulfuric acid can be erupted into the Earth’s stratosphere and cause a temporary climate change. Some types of volcanic eruptions are volcanic earthquakes, pyroclastic surge and flows, lava flows, tephra, and more. People are beginning to work, play, and travel in volcanic areas. Large explosive volcanoes can damage things hundreds of miles away and affect the climate. Pyroclastic flow is a devastating result of a large number of explosive volcanoes. The flows are hot gas and rock (tephra) travelling as fast as 450 miles per hour. Some other serious hazards are gas from the volcanoes and volcanic earthquakes. Volcanoes can erupt without warning, and El Misti is specifically dangerous. People in the nearby towns are starting to build structures on the side of El Misti. If the volcano happened to erupt without much notice, then it could take many lives in a matter of seconds since it is an explosive volcano. Some people go camping on El Misti, which takes about 2 days to climb. This could be potentially dangerous if the volcano were to erupt. There are climbing routes mapped out for campers to take if they were to climb the mountain.
