The Barren Island Volcano
Transcript of The Barren Island Volcano
The Barren Island Volcano is a volcano located in the Andaman Islands, on an island called Barren Island.
Type of Volcano
The Barren Island Volcano is a cinder-cone. When it erupt it shoots out volcanic ash. This volcano produces violent eruptions and had a recent violent eruption in 2013. It has andesitic magma.
The Barren Island is located on the Indian - Australian plate and the Eurasian plate boundary. It is a convergent plate boundary, with the Indian - Australian plate subducting under the Eurasian plate, causing the volcano to form.

Since the Island is Barren, there aren't many hazards from the Barren Island volcano. The only two real problems are if ash blows to other islands in the Andaman chain, or if rocks or other debris fall into the ocean and cause a tsunami. This volcano has a long eruption history, starting around 8060 BCE, give or take 100 years. The eruptions started back up again in 1787, with eruptions in 1789, 1795, 1803, 1832, 1852, 1991, 1994, 2000, 2005, 2008, 2010, and the latest eruption being in 2013. The recent eruption spewed an enormous amount of ash, coating the ocean floor. During this project, I learned that there's an island chain called the Andaman Islands in the Indian Ocean. I also learned what andesitic magma is. Last, I learned how volcanic eruptions can affect the environment.
