  • A. What is a volcano?

    • 1. A volcano is a vent in the Earth's crust through which molten rock flows.

    • 2. Molten rock below the Earth’s surface is called magma.


  • B. How do volcanoes form?

    • 1. Volcanoes can form along convergent plate boundaries , when one plate subducts under another.

      • a. Magma from the hot mantle rises through cracks in the crust and forms a volcano.

      • b. Molten rock that erupts onto the Earth’s surface is called lava.


When two plates collide, the denser plate sinks, or subducts, into the mantle.

Convergent Plate Boundary


  • 2. subducts, into the mantle. At divergent plate boundaries, magma rises in cracks between two plates, forming volcanoes.

  • 3. Volcanoes that are not associated with plate boundaries are called hotspots.

  • 4. Geologists theorize that hotspots form over plumes, which are places where hot magma rises due to convection currents.


As plates separate, magma rises through the vent or opening in Earth’s crust that forms between them.

Divergent Plate Boundary


Over time, a chain of volcanoes form as a tectonic plate moves. The oldest volcano will be farthest away from the hotspot. The youngest volcano will be directly above the hotspot.

Hot Spots


Hot spots
HOT SPOTS moves. The oldest volcano will be farthest away from the hotspot. The youngest volcano will be directly above the hotspot.

  • The plate moves, but the hot spot does not! As the plate moves, the plume forms a new volcano.


  • C. Where do volcanoes form? moves. The oldest volcano will be farthest away from the hotspot. The youngest volcano will be directly above the hotspot.

    • 1. Most volcanoes occur on or along plate boundaries.

    • 2. The Ring of Fire is the area of earthquake and volcanic activity that surrounds the Pacific Ocean.

    • 3. Most volcanoes in the United States occur near the Pacific coast.

The Ring of Fire moves. The oldest volcano will be farthest away from the hotspot. The youngest volcano will be directly above the hotspot.


  • D. moves. The oldest volcano will be farthest away from the hotspot. The youngest volcano will be directly above the hotspot.Types of Volcanoes

    • 1. Cinder cones are small, steep-sided volcanoes that erupt gas-rich, basaltic lavas.

    • 2. Composite volcanoes are large, steep sided volcanoes that result from explosive eruptions of andesitic and rhyolitic lava along convergent plate boundaries.

  • 3. moves. The oldest volcano will be farthest away from the hotspot. The youngest volcano will be directly above the hotspot.Shield volcanoes are large, gentle-sloped volcanoes that result from quiet eruptions of basaltic lavas along divergent plate boundaries and oceanic hot spots.

  • 4. Lava Flows travel slowly and rarely are deadly; they can last for many months or longer.


Types of Volcanoes moves. The oldest volcano will be farthest away from the hotspot. The youngest volcano will be directly above the hotspot.

  • Volcanoes are classified based on their shape and size.

  • Shield volcanoes are common along divergent plate boundaries and oceanic hotspots.

  • Shield volcanoes are large with gentle slopes of basaltic lavas.

Lava flows
Lava Flows moves. The oldest volcano will be farthest away from the hotspot. The youngest volcano will be directly above the hotspot.


  • 5. moves. The oldest volcano will be farthest away from the hotspot. The youngest volcano will be directly above the hotspot.Volcanic ash can explode out of a volcano up to 40 km into the air.

  • 6.Mudflows form when thermal energy from an erupting volcano melts snow. The meltwater can mix with mud and ash from the volcano, and it flows downhill.


Volcanic ash
Volcanic Ash moves. The oldest volcano will be farthest away from the hotspot. The youngest volcano will be directly above the hotspot.


Mud flows
Mud Flows moves. The oldest volcano will be farthest away from the hotspot. The youngest volcano will be directly above the hotspot.


  • 7. moves. The oldest volcano will be farthest away from the hotspot. The youngest volcano will be directly above the hotspot.A pyroclastic flow is a fast-moving avalanche of hot gas, ash, and volcanic rock.

  • 8. Volcanic eruptions can be predicted by studying changes in the ground and patterns of earthquakes.

Pompeii
Pompeii moves. The oldest volcano will be farthest away from the hotspot. The youngest volcano will be directly above the hotspot.


  • E. Volcanic Eruptions moves. The oldest volcano will be farthest away from the hotspot. The youngest volcano will be directly above the hotspot.

    • 1. Volcanic ash, made up of tiny particles of pulverized volcanic rock and glass, erupts explosively.

    • 2. The eruption style of a volcano depends on the amount of gases dissolved in the magma, especially the amount of dissolved water vapor.


  • 3. moves. The oldest volcano will be farthest away from the hotspot. The youngest volcano will be directly above the hotspot.Viscosity is a fluid’s resistance to flow. Viscosity of lava is higher when magma has a high silica content.

  • 4. As magma rises toward the Earth’s surface, the pressure on it decreases. Bubbles of gas form and rise in the magma. The bubbles affect the explosiveness of lava and the type of rock that forms as lava cools.




  • F. Volcanic Eruptions and Climate Change explosively to form composite cones.

    • 1. The release of a large amount of volcanic ash can affect Earth’s climate by blocking sunlight.

    • 2. When droplets of sulfuric acid form in the atmosphere, they reflect sunlight into space.

    • 3. Volcanic ash and acid droplets in the atmosphere cool the Earth’s climate.


The 1991 Mount Pinatubo eruption caused temperatures to decrease by almost one degree Celsius in one year.
