Transcript of The Pichincha Volcano!

Pichincha Volcano
Quito, Pichincha, Ecuador
Last Eruption
Convergent Boundary
A Convergent Boundary is Where Two Plates Collide.
Produce Explosive Eruptions
The Explosive Eruptions Have Caused The Volcano To Produce Plinian Columns, Dome Growth, And Pyroclastic Flows.
Active Volcano
The Pichincha Volcano Was
Dormant For A Long Time. The
Volcano is Currently Active.
A StratoVolcano is a Tall, Conical, Volcano Composed of One Layer of Hardened Lava, Tephra, And Volcanic Ash.

It is A Shield Volcano, A Volcano broad, domed volcano with gently sloping sides, characteristic of the eruption of fluid, basaltic lava.
2004, 2003, 2002, 2001, 1998-2000, 1997, 1993, 1990,
1985,1981-82, 1881, 1869, 1969, 1868, 1968, 1831, 1830,
1660, 1582-98, 1575, 1566.

There does not seem to be a pattern. It is very likely
that another eruption will happen in the future.
I think that the next eruption could be in 2013-2015
because it erupts frequently and it hasn't had an
explosive eruption fo quite a while now.
Eruption History
They are using scientific instruments to predict eruptions.

Seismograph: (Seismometer) Dtects the intensity of earthquakes caused by moving magma.
Gravimeters: Detect flowing magma.
Tiltmeter: Sensor that uses a laser beam to find the rising or lowering of magma levels by measuring changes in ground elevation.
