    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.

    Explosive Eruption
    Detailed map (insert detailed map here) with citation (URL)
    {Detailed.jpg}{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)

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

    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.

    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.

    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.
