erupt

最近、活発になってる桜島。 There is a mountain called Sakurajima, which is an active volcano. The view from the airplane. #桜島 #鹿児島 #活火山 #sakurajima #kagoshima #airplane #window #active #volcano #mountains #erupt

Volcanoes are openings the Earth's crust that, when active, erupt in often violent displays, allowing boiling hot ash, gas and magma (lava once it has come out of the volcano) to escape. There are three major kinds of volcano: shield, stratovolcanoes and cinder cone. Volcanoes are usually found on tectonic plate boundaries; this is especially true for the Pacific Ring of Fire, where more than 75% of the Earth's volcanoes are found. They erupt due to escaping magma, about 30km beneath our feet is the mantle, a layer of the Earth that is made up of molten rock and extends down to the core. This region is so hot that the molten rock can squeeze out and form giant bubbles called magma chambers. The magma here is lighter than the rest, so it rises up, finding cracks and weaknesses in the Earth's crust. When it finally reaches the surface, it erupts. While many volcanoes take thousands of years to form, others can grow overnight. For example, there is a volcano in Mexico named Paricutin. It appeared in a cornfield on February 20th 1943, and within a week it was 5 stories tall. By the end of the year it was more than 300 metres tall. It ended it's growth in 1952 at a height of 424 metres. A phenomenon associated with volcanic eruption is volcanic lightning. This occurs mostly within the cloud of ash during eruption and is caused by the friction of the ash rushing to the surface. There have been about 200 accounts of this phenomenon but the pictures look pretty cool! Volcanoes may seem terrifying, and have devastating effects (The eruption of Mount Toba in the mid 13th century caused the Ice Age!) but they're a part of nature to be respected 🌋 - Katie ⚛ • Images from Google • #volcano #volcanoes #volcanology #lava #magma #scientist #science #earthscience #earth #nature #earthscrust #rock #rocks #obsidian #gas #ash #awful #cool #mounttoba #mountsthelens #mtsthelens #volcaniceruption #eruption #erupt #volcaniclightning #iceage #paricutin #mexico #magmachamber #pacificringoffire
