What are the Features of Volcanoes? The classic view of volcano is of the classic mountain shape that starts to erupt from the top of the land mass and has a large crater towards the summit. A number of the planet’s volcanoes have a rugged peak that is created by a lava dome vice a summit crater. Other types of volcanoes include extremely large plateaus that also have vents which are capable of allowing volcanic steam, gas, or even magma to escape to the Earth’s surface. Other types of volcanic structures that have been discovered include ones comprised of mud and ice.
The Nevado del Ruiz Volcano November 13, 1985. . After 69 years of being dormant, the Nevado del Ruiz volcano in Tolima, Colombia erupted causing a pyroclastic flow (a current of superheated gas and rock that moves a speed of around 450 mph (700km/h) away from the volcano) to melt the mountain’s snow cap and glaciers. This in turn sent mudslides down the mountain and into river beds that swept into the sleeping town of Armero, burying it in thick mud that had the density of concrete. Over 20,000 of the town’s 29,000 people were killed that day and another 3,000 people from the neighboring towns died as well.
Mount Punatubo The 1991 eruption of Mount Punatubo in the Philippines was one of the largest eruptions of the 20th century. The aftermath of this eruption were so significant, it was said to have affected global temperatures by about 0.9 degrees Fahrenheit in the following year. The ash cloud also caused by the eruption rose over 22 miles in the air and was one of the primary contributors to the number of deaths associated with that eruption. A large number of homes also had their roofs collapse in because of the weight of the accumulated wet ash.
Kilauea. The most active volcano in the world (not including underwater volcanoes) is another of Hawaii’s volcanoes, Kilauea. Beginning in 1983, the Kilauea volcano has been in a state of near constant eruption, relative to most volcanoes, ever since (for 30 years). It was recorded to have erupted 45 times in the 20th century. The most recent eruption of Kilauea was in March 2011. More than 90 percent of Kilauea’s surface is made up of lava that is less than 1,100 years old.
Volcanoes in the USA The most destructive volcano in the United States was the 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens in Washington. Over 250 homes, 47 bridges, and 185 miles of highway were destroyed, taking the lives of over 57 people directly. The eruption produced over 540 million tons of ash covering an area of more than 22,000 square miles.
Volcanoes in the USA The biggest eruption in the United States (and the 20th century), however, was the Novarupta (Katmai) Volcano in Alaska that erupted in 1912 with almost 3 times the volume of the Mount St. Helen’s eruption. The eruption lasted over 60 hours and spewed out an estimated 15 cubic kilometers of magma. There wasn’t as much commercial damage, though, due to the fact that the region was sparsely populated.

In what countries are there more volcanoes? 5. How many people were killed when in 1669 Etna in Sicilia erupted? 6. Why was Krakatau dangerous?
Краткое описание документа:
Презентация по английскому языку по теме "Вулканы" для 10 класса по УМК О.В.Афанасьевой. В презентации даны основные категории вулканов и их особенности. Слово вулкан происходит от итальянского "огненная гора" Есть несколько категорий вулканов в зависимости от частоты, от формы и от выброса лавы и золы. Также даны факты о самых больших извержениях, происшедших в 19-20 веках. В ноябре 1985 года сильное извержение произошло в Невадо, где погибли 20тысяч человек. В конце презентации даны вопросы для проверки знаний учащихся. Презентацию можно использовать приподготовке темы "Экология".
