Transcript of Volcano project

The Ring of Fire By Matt Lensing and Dylan Drover Hours 3-4/5 Types of Volcanoes The shield volcano Usually have low levels of viscosity Have a circular or oval shape in map views Has low pyroclastic materials except for near the eruption vents Non-Explosive Stratovolcano Have high amounts of viscosity Pyroclastic material can make up over 50% of the volume of a stratovolcano Can explode Some have a crater at the summit of it due to explosions Cinder Cones/Tephra Cones Usually contain basaltic or andesitic materials Have a crater at the top so the sides builds up around the explosion vent Usually found in groups of the same volcano Resources Used http://www.tulane.edu/~sanelson/eens1110/volcanoes.htm Active Volcanoes in the Ring of Fire - Merapi Volcano, Java, Indonesia

Subduction zones create magma that finds its way to the surface and erupts out of the volcanoes. https://sites.google.com/site/volcanoesandtheringoffireurja/what-is-a-volcano/interesting-facts -The tallest volcano in the solar system isn't actually on Earth, it's on Mars. Olympus Mons is a shield volcano that rises to an elevation of about 27 km high and is roughly 550 km wide. -Somewhere in the world, there are about 20 volcanoes erupting as you read this! -Some of the volcanoes didn't form from subduction though. Magma plumes shoot up magma and when it cools it can form new land. http://www.geocraft.com/WVFossils/subduction.html http://claremontgeography12.blogspot.com/2011/02/subduction.html Fun Facts What is the Ring of Fire and which Volcanoes there are the most active? Conclusion Problem: What is the Ring of Fire and which volcanoes there are the most active? So now you know that the Ring of Fire was created from subduction zones at convergent boundries and that there are many volcanoes located on the Ring of Fire. If you choose to live on the Ring of Fire just be prepared for the destruction that may come.
