Since the beginning of time volcanoes have caused major damage like destroy nature and cities, but even though they cause destruction on earth they still surprise humans. Volcanoes are apart of earth's beautiful mountains and no matter how dangerous they will still shock us how beautiful they
When the reservoir has formed, a substance is collected that will trap the volcanic gases. They form depressions in the ground and it is very hard to imagine the eruptions, explosions, car atrophic proportions that they cause. Super volcanoes produce vast amounts of ash and destruction. There are thousands of normal volcanoes around the world and at least 50 erupt every year. Vast clouds of ash are deafening sounds; it affects the climate on earth for many years and affects the agriculture colour.
This is because when Mother Earth moves, people all across the world will feel it. There are many dangers that the Mother Earth and its geology present to human life. These things lay resting, waiting to be awakened. Things such as tornadoes, tsunamis, hurricanes, and even earthquakes are the very things that affect people in a way that changes them forever, whether it is by taking a life or destroying a home. All of these things are very destructive, but none like volcanoes.
Over thousands of years ago and for thousands of years to come, volcanoes have played an important role in Earth’s history. Volcanoes are powerful forces of Mother Nature. They have destroyed billions of dollars in property and caused volcanic winters while farming the land into rich, fertile soil. These fissures have impacted the landscape and humanity in the past and will continue to affect us in the future. Sprawling up islands and destroying homes, volcanoes play an important role of Mother Nature and their force/effects are impossible to ignore let alone compete against.
Volcanoes have been around for many centuries and will continue to exist for many more to come. Many people have their ideas of what they believe volcanoes are. Most believe that it is basically a mountain that shoots out lava, destroying anything and everything nearby. This assumption is actually proven accurate. Volcanoes are considered one of the most dangerous natural disasters; they can erupt suddenly, destroying everything in its way.
Within 2-3 hours about 80% of the crater on top of the volcano was submerged in lava. Many worried that the lava would overflow and run to the Mauna Loa Observatory, but the eruption shifted to go northeast rift zone instead. This instead threatened the nearby city of Hilo, populating 40,000 people. The lava headed straight for the town. On the way, the lava reached a generator and left it destroyed.
It destroyed 75% of itself along with many other people living near the coastlines of Australia and India. In 1988, Krakatoa erupted in February, then continued on March 16th on which was reported caused two small lava flows from its new crater, then continued into April, causing frequent explosions to eject small plumes of fire. The last eruption we'll talk about was in 1992. This explosion’s strongest activity point occurred on November 12, when Krakatoa started “shooting” lava-bombs out of its crater onto the north coast and some lava flowed into the sea. While we know volcanoes erupt, how do they erupt?
These volcanoes are built almost entirely of lava. Shield volcanoes are produced by gas and heat from the earth’s ... ... middle of paper ... ...different types of gases start to exit the vent of a volcano, some of these gases can be harmful because they are extremely toxic. Therefore, you can easily find out when a volcanic eruption is about to occur because of the signs or sudden changes that the volcano gives out about weeks or months before it erupts. Throughout the course of history many major volcanic eruptions have occurred. Those volcanic eruptions have caused starvation, tsunamis, ash flows, mud flows, and many diseases.
Earthquakes The earth is a very unique place with very intense catastrophes that occur throughout its lifespan. Some of these catalysts have the ability to completely alter the earth in ways that no man made invention could do. Earthquakes are among those catastrophes that cause unimaginable amounts of damage in what seems like no time at all. Earthquakes are caused by a collision of two plates in the earth. The collision will then send seismic waves across the surface of the earth destroying anything in its path.
The story is unique and interesting to think about, because no other story is really told about a volcano that big that destroys a city. Pompeii will be remembered in history forever, and it has definitely left a lasting fingerprint and an old city behind in its path, where people can study, analyze, and learn more about our past and what was happening at that time period and how it has affected people in this time today. Altogether, one might say that Pompeii influenced out lives today and changed them so that all of the world can be more self-aware and more prepared for things like this, as well as evidence that something like this could very well happen again.
