slide1
Volcanism & Extrusive

expulsion of molten rock (LAVA), gases and

water onto the surface of the Earth.

Igneous Activity

-

550 active volcanoes

>

Active = erupted in historic times.

-

e.g. Mauna Loa and Kilauea (Hawaii)

-

Mt. St. Helens (Washington)

-

Mt. Pinatubo (Philippines)

-

Mt. Fujiyama (Japan)

-

Mont Serrat (Caribbean)

Volcanoes, Craters, Domes, Calderas

Conical mountains

-

central vent where lava, gases, and

pyroclastic materials are erupted.

-

Craters

-

circular opening at summit

-

generally less than 1 km in diameter

-

Dome

- a large mound of viscous, felsic lava

- commonly plugs the central vent

Calderas

-

a collapsed volcanic summit

-

greater in diameter

-

have steep sides.

slide12
a.k.a.- stratovolcanoes

-

interbedded pyroclastics and lavas.

-

typically andesitic to rhyolitic lava

>

intermediate to felsic magma composition

-

Found on continents and island arcs

>

mostly associated with convergent plate

boundaries (subductive)

Cinder Cones

Primarily cinder-sized (0.25-1.0 mm) material.

but may have other sizes too.

Cinders fall to Earth and collect around the vent.

have steep slopes up to 33 degrees

smaller than shield volcanoes, usually less than

400 m tall

Form on the flanks of larger volcanoes.

Pyroclastic Ash Flow

'

aka Nuee Ardentes

aka Nuee Ardentes

Pyroclastic ash- lava blown up into the air

smaller stuff is ash, larger stuff are

called "bombs"

Pyroclastic Ash Flow

extremely fast (100's m/sec)

extremely hot

-

sometimes glowing redhot

extremely lethal

-

many deaths associated with volcanic

eruptions are related to these events

e.g., Pompeii and Herculanum

Lahars & Nuee Ardentes

Lahars are mud flows that often occur after eruptions.

Nuée ardentes are mobile dense clouds of incandescent ash that can move downhill at

,

speeds up to 100 km/hr.

slide29
Gases and Magma

Volcanic gases

-

water vapor

- carbon dioxide

-

nitrogen

- sulfur oxides

-

hydrogen sulfide

- chlorine

Felsic magmas

-

highly viscous : Si-rich

-

inhibits the expansion of gases

-

pressure builds up

-

explosive eruptions, like Mt. St. Helens.

Mafic magmas

-

lower viscosity

-

lower gas pressure

-

erupt rather quietly, like Hawaiian Volcanoes.

slide30
Lake Nyos, a volcanic lake in Cameroon, Africa

CO2 emitted from the acidic lake killed 1700 villagers near the lake in 1986

slide32
Effects of Volcanic activity

builds up mountains and new land; also destroys land

-

(Lithosphere-aka. GEOSPHERE)

destroys many living things

-

(biosphere)

ejects ash and gases into the air blocking sunlight

(exosphere)

Changes weather and climate patterns for several

months to a year

-

(atmosphere)

Causes changes in drainage patterns, and pollutes

many water sources

-

(hydrosphere)

slide33
Distribution of volcanoes is not random

related to plate tectonics

commonly found along plate boundaries

slide35
Eruption types are a function of plate tectonic setting, magma composition and water/gas content.
