Слайд 1

Volcanoes: Eruptions and Hazards

Слайд 2

What is a volcano? A volcano is a vent or 'chimney' that connects molten rock (magma) from within the Earth’s crust to the Earth's surface. The volcano includes the surrounding cone of erupted material. vent cone magma chamber conduit

Слайд 3

What causes volcanoes? The Formation of Magma Mantle rock melts when the temperature increases or the pressure decreases.

Слайд 4

What causes volcanoes? Where Volcanoes Form Tectonic Plate Boundaries!!! ~75% world’s active volcanoes in Ring of Fire

Слайд 5

Plates Earthquakes Volcanoes Volcanoes and Earthquakes are found on places where plates meet

Слайд 6

What causes volcanoes?

Слайд 7

What causes volcanoes? Hot Spots

Слайд 8

How and why do volcanoes erupt? Hot, molten rock (magma) is buoyant (has a lower density than the surrounding rocks) and will rise up through the crust to erupt on the surface. Same principle as hot air rising, e.g. how a hot air balloon works When magma reaches the surface it depends on how easily it flows (viscosity) and the amount of gas (H2O, CO2, S) it has in it as to how it erupts.

Слайд 9

Large amounts of gas and a high viscosity (sticky) magma will form an explosive eruption! Think about shaking a carbonated drink and then releasing the cap. Small amounts of gas and (or) low viscosity (runny) magma will form an effusive eruption Where the magma just trickles out of the volcano (lava flow). How and why do volcanoes erupt?

Слайд 10

The Composition of Magma Determines whether it is explosive or not! High content More likely to be !!! High content More likely to be !!! Why? Silica has a thick, stiff consistency Flows slowly Tends to Harden in the volcano’s vent

Слайд 11

Pyroclastic material Rock fragments created by eruptions magma explodes from volcano and solidifies in the air existing rock is shattered by powerful eruptions Volcanic blocks Volcanic bombs Lapilli Volcanic ash What Erupts from a Volcano?

Слайд 12

What Erupts from a Volcano? Lava can be thick or thin. Blocky lava Pahoehoe Aa Pillow lava

Слайд 13

How do volcanoes affect the Earth? Flows and Fallouts hot ash can flow really quickly Knock down buildings Dam rivers (flooding/drought) Kill crops and livestock Climatic Changes Ash & Gases can block sunlight Drop average global temperature noticeably

Слайд 14

Types of Volcanoes Shield volcano Cinder cone volcano Composite volcano

Слайд 15

Craters, Calderas, and Lava Plateau Crater From explosions of material out of the vent and the collapse of material back into vent Caldera Much larger depression that forms when magma chamber empties and its roof collapses Lava Plateau Forms when lava erupts from long cracks, or fissures, and spreads out evenly (thousands of km)

Слайд 16

Explosive Eruptions Mt. Redoubt Explosive volcanic eruptions can be catastrophic Erupt 10’s-1000’s km3 of magma Send ash clouds >25 km into the stratosphere Have severe environmental and climatic effects Hazardous!!! Above: Large eruption column and ash cloud from an explosive eruption at Mt Redoubt, Alaska

Слайд 17

Three products from an explosive eruption Ash fall Pyroclastic flow Pyroclastic surge Explosive Eruptions Pyroclastic flows on Montserrat, buried the capital city.

Слайд 18

Direct measurements of pyroclastic flows are extremely dangerous!!!

Слайд 19

Effusive Eruptions Effusive eruptions are characterised by outpourings of lava on to the ground. Hawaii Courtesy of www.swisseduc.ch

Слайд 20

Pyroclastic flow Lahars/Mud flows Pyroclastic fall Lava flow Noxious Gas Earthquakes Volcanic Hazards Courtesy of www.swisseduc.ch

Слайд 21

Pyroclastic Flow For example, eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD destroyed the city of Pompeii

Слайд 22

Pompeii (79AD) On August 24, 79AD Mount Vesuvius literally blew its top, erupting tonnes of molten ash, pumice and sulfuric gas miles into the atmosphere. Pyroclastic flows flowed over the city of Pompeii and surrounding areas.

Слайд 23

Pompeii (79AD) Pyroclastic flows of poisonous gas and hot volcanic debris engulfed the cities of Pompeii, Herculaneum and Stabiae suffocating the inhabitants and burying the buildings.

Слайд 24

Pompeii (79AD) The cities remained buried and undiscovered for almost 1700 years until excavation began in 1748. These excavations continue today and provide insight into life during the Roman Empire.

Слайд 25

How do pyroclastic flows cause devastation?

Слайд 26

Pyroclastic Flow - lahars Hot volcanic activity can melt snow and ice Melt water picks up rock and debris Forms fast flowing, high energy torrents Destroys all in its path

Слайд 27

Pyroclastic Fall Ash load Collapses roofs Brings down power lines Kills plants Contaminates water supplies Respiratory hazard for humans and animals

Слайд 28

Lava Flow It is not just explosive volcanic activity that can be hazardous. Effusive (lava) activity is also dangerous.

Слайд 29

Volcano Monitoring Volcano Observatories are set up on all active volcanoes that threaten the human population. These are designed to monitor and potentially to predict the eruptive behaviour of the volcano in question.

Слайд 30

Seismicity Deformation Gas Output (on volcano and remote sensing techniques) These three things are the most important precursors to an eruption. Volcano Monitoring

Слайд 31

Gas samples are collected from fumaroles and active vents. Gas levels may also be monitored by remote sensing techniques Gas Monitoring

Слайд 32

In Summary.. Volcanoes are extremely hazardous. However, the volcano can be studied, monitored and understood. Each volcano is different, and offers a unique set of dangers Plans may be emplaced to help control potential damage.
