    Lava Flows There are two types of lava flows, free flowing mobile lava and slow moving viscous lava. Free flowing mobile (basaltic) lava creates a vent and spreads to produce large broad cones called shield volcanoes. The slow moving viscous (rhyolite) lava creates a narrow steep-sided cone due to a different chemical composition to basalt and this makes the lava flows more slowly down the cone side. My Aims My aims are to investigate the factors affecting Lava Flows. There are

    Heimaey. The town was mostly evacuated over the next few days and the lava slowly flowed towards town and the mouth of the harbor for the next seven months. Vestmannaeyjar is the only good harbour in that part of Iceland, and was the base for a large fishing fleet that produces a significant part of Iceland’s GNP. As the lava threatened to overrun the town and close off the harbor, a decision was made to try to slow and divert the lava by cooling it with sea water. The idea was initially scoffed at, but

    Pyroclastic Flows There were many pyroclastic flows that were produced in the years 1996 and 1997 which were produced from the collapse of the lava dome (Cole et al., 1998). The deposits from these pyroclastic flows range from single pulse events to large scale collapses (Cole et al., 1998). There are periods of frequent pyroclastic flows that correlate with pulses of high magma extrusion rates (Cole et al., 1998). The first pyroclastic flow occurred in 1996 when the dome collapsed and sent material

    The 1930-50’s golden era of organized labor is over and has lost the energy it had once had as a unifying factor in the lives of workers in the U.S. There are many factors to this decline, but image is very influential in the creation and influence of unions in two ways: externally and internally. Externally, the union’s ideology and actions attract workers into becoming members of a union and how government responds to a union’s beliefs and actions. Internally, union’s are run democratically, where

    first experience with labor organizing came when he was a leading member in a strike against Kroger’s grocery in 1932 . He then became a career labor organizer after he was fired from Kroger’s. Although his role was not as great as the other four members of the leadership in organizing the strike, his ability to convince fellow workers to organize was recognized by those around him and he was invited to join the Local 299 of the Teamsters in Detroit. Hoffa was the poster boy for the hardened worker

    volcano to include: types of volcanoes, formation of a volcano, and elements of a volcano; such as, lava, rock fragments, and gas. This paper also tells a little bit about volcanic activity in different parts of the world. What is a volcano? A volcano is a vent in the earth from which molten rock and gas erupt. The molten rock that erupts from the volcano forms a hill or mountain around the vent. The lava may flow out as a viscous liquid or it may explode from the vent as solid or liquid particles

    eventually break through a weak point in the Earth’s crust. When this happens the volcano may have a violent eruption of gas, rocks, molten lava, and ash. Volcanoes are generally grouped into four categories: cinder cone, composite volcanoes, shield volcanoes, and lava domes. Cinder cone volcanoes are formed when gas-charged lava explodes into the air. The pieces of lava that fall from the air solidify and create a cone-shaped hill with a cup-shaped depression. Composite volcanoes are large, steep, symmetrical

    ejection of lava. Most composite cones are built of layers of fragment materials and flows of lava, all inclined outward away from the vent. Both Etna, in Sicily, and Vesuvius, near Naples are examples of composite cones. The most common type of volcanic cones are stratovolcanoes. A large stratovolcano will be built with many layers of ash and lava. Mt. Saint Helens, Rainier, and Mt. Fuji are all examples of strata volcanos. Shield volcanoes are made of thousands of thin lava flows. Because

    the pressure. Toxic gases and rocks shoot up through the opening, overflowing the air with hot lava fragments. This can bring floods, avalanches, and can even provoke tsunami and earthquakes. How are they formed? Volcanoes are created when magma from within the Earth's crust rises to the surface. At the surface of the volcano, the manga erupts to form lava flows and ash deposits. Over time, these lava flows and ash deposits increases in size. What are
