3 Section 1 Volcanic Eruptions Bellringer Make a labeled drawing showing what happens when a volcano erupts. Then describe the photographs on pages 128 and 129 in your textbook. Why do the characteristics of volcanic eruptions vary? Illustrate your responses in your science journal.
4 Section 1 Volcanic Eruptions Objectives Distinguish between nonexplosive and explosive volcanic eruptions. Identify the features of a volcano. Explain how the composition of magma affects the type of volcanic eruption that will occur. Describe four types of lava and four types of pyroclastic material.
5 Section 1 Volcanic Eruptions Volcanic Eruptions A volcano is a vent or fissure in the Earth s surface through which molten rock and gases are expelled. Molten rock is called magma. Magma that flows onto the Earth s surface is called lava.
6 Section 1 Volcanic Eruptions Nonexplosive Eruptions Nonexplosive eruptions are the most common type of volcanic eruptions. These eruptions produce relatively calm flows of lava in huge amounts. Vast areas of the Earth s surface, including much of the sea floor and the Northwestern United States, are covered with lava form nonexplosive eruptions.
7 Section 1 Volcanic Eruptions Explosive Eruptions While explosive eruptions are much rarer than nonexplosive eruptions, the effects can be incredibly destructive. During an explosive eruption, clouds of hot debris, ash, and gas rapidly shoot out from a volcano. An explosive eruption can also blast millions of tons of lava and rock from a volcano, and can demolish and entire mountainside.
8 Section 1 Volcanic Eruptions What Is Inside a Volcano? The interior of a volcano is made up of two main features. The magma chamber is the body of molten rock deep underground that feeds a volcano. The vent is an opening at the surface of the Earth through which volcanic material passes.

10 Section 1 Volcanic Eruptions What Makes Up Magma? By comparing magma from different eruptions, scientists have learned that the composition of the magma affects how explosive a volcanic eruption is. The key to whether an eruption will be explosive lies in the silica, water, and gas content of the magma.
11 Section 1 Volcanic Eruptions What Makes Up Magma?, continued Water and Magma Are an Explosive Combination If the water content of magma is high, an explosive eruption is more likely. While underground, magma is under intense pressure and water in it stays dissolved. If the magma quickly moves to the surface, pressure suddenly decreases and the water and other compounds become gases. As gases expand rapidly, an explosion can result.
12 Section 1 Volcanic Eruptions What Makes Up Magma?, continued Silica-Rich Magma Traps Explosive Gases Magma with a high silica content also tends to cause explosive eruptions. Silica-rich magma has a stiff consistency, so it flows slowly and tends to harden in a volcano s vents. As a result, it plugs the vent. As more magma pushes up from below, pressure increases. If enough pressure builds up, an explosive eruption takes place.
13 Section 1 Volcanic Eruptions What Erupts from a Volcano? Magma erupts as either lava or pyroclastic material. Lava is liquid magma that flows from a volcanic vent. Pyroclastic material forms when magma is blasted into the air and hardens.
14 Section 1 Volcanic Eruptions What Erupts from a Volcano?, continued Types of Lava The viscosity of lava, or how it flows, varies greatly. Lava that has high viscosity is stiff. Lava that has low viscosity is more fluid. The viscosity of lava affects the surface of a lava flow in different ways. Four types of lava are shown on the next slide.
15 Section 1 Volcanic Eruptions
16 Section 1 Volcanic Eruptions What Erupts from a Volcano?, continued Types of Pyroclastic Material When magma explodes from a volcano and solidifies in the air, pyroclastic material is formed. Pyroclastic material also forms when powerful eruptions shatter existing rock.
17 Section 1 Volcanic Eruptions What Erupts from a Volcano?, continued There are four types of pyroclastic material: Volcanic bombs are large blobs of magma that harden in the air. Volcanic blocks are pieces of solid rock erupted from a volcano. Volcanic blocks are the largest pieces of pyroclastic material.
18 Section 1 Volcanic Eruptions What Erupts from a Volcano?, continued Lapilli are small, pebblelike bits of magma that hardened before they hit the ground. Volcanic ash forms when the gases in stiff magma expand rapidly and the walls of the gas bubbles explode into tiny, glasslike slivers. Ash makes up most of the pyroclastic material in an eruption.
19 Section 1 Volcanic Eruptions What Erupts from a Volcano?, continued Pyroclastic flows are dangerous volcanic flows that are produced when enormous amounts of hot ash, dust, and gases are ejected from a volcano. Pyroclastic flows can race downhill at speeds of more than 200 km/h. The temperature at the center of a pyroclastic flow can exceed 700 C.
20 Section 2 Effects of Volcanic Eruptions Bellringer Look through this section, and write a definition for the following terms: shield volcano, cinder cone volcano, composite volcano, volcanic crater, and caldera. Record your definitions in your science journal.
21 Section 2 Effects of Volcanic Eruptions Objectives Explain how volcanic eruptions can affect climate. Compare the three types of volcanoes. Compare craters, calderas, and lava plateaus.
22 Section 2 Effects of Volcanic Eruptions Volcanic Eruptions and Climate Change During a large-scale volcanic eruption, enormous amounts of volcanic ash and gases are ejected into the upper atmosphere. As volcanic ash and gases spread throughout the atmosphere, they can block enough sunlight to cause global temperature to drop.
23 Section 2 Effects of Volcanic Eruptions Different Types of Volcanoes Volcanic eruptions can cause profound changes in climate, but the changes to the Earth s surface are more familiar. Perhaps the best known of all volcanic landforms are the volcanoes themselves.
24 Section 2 Effects of Volcanic Eruptions Different Types of Volcanoes, continued There are three basic types of volcanoes: Shield Volcanoes Cinder Cone Volcanoes Composite Volcanoes
25 Section 2 Effects of Volcanic Eruptions
26 Section 2 Effects of Volcanic Eruptions Different Types of Volcanoes, continued Shield volcanoes are built of layers of lava that are released from repeated nonexplosive eruptions. The lava spreads out over a wide area, creating a volcano with gently sloping sides.
27 Section 2 Effects of Volcanic Eruptions Different Types of Volcanoes, continued Cinder cone volcanoes are made of pyroclastic material usually produced from moderately explosive eruptions. The pyroclastic material forms steep slopes.
28 Section 2 Effects of Volcanic Eruptions Different Types of Volcanoes, continued Composite volcanoes are formed from explosive eruptions of pyroclastic material, followed by quieter flows of lava. These formations, among the most common types of volcanoes, have broad bases and sides that get steeper toward the top.
29 Section 2 Effects of Volcanic Eruptions Other Types of Volcanic Landforms In addition to volcanoes, there are other landforms produced by volcanic activity. Craters are funnel-shaped pits near the top of the central vent of a volcano.
30 Section 2 Effects of Volcanic Eruptions Other Volcanic Landforms, continued Calderas are large, semicircular depressions that form when the magma chamber below a volcano partially empties and causes the ground above to sink. Calderas can appear similar to craters, but are many times larger.
31 Section 2 Effects of Volcanic Eruptions
32 Section 2 Effects of Volcanic Eruptions Other Volcanic Landforms, continued Lava Plateaus are wide, flat landforms that result form repeated nonexplosive eruptions of lava that spread of a large area. The lava that formed lava plateaus usually erupted from long cracks, or rifts, in the crust over a period of millions of years.
33 Section 3 Causes of Volcanic Eruptions Bellringer Imagine you live on a volcanic island. List the signals that would tell you the volcano was about to erupt. Record your responses in your science journal.
34 Section 3 Causes of Volcanic Eruptions Objectives Describe the formation and movement of magma. Explain the relationship between volcanoes and plate tectonics. Summarize the methods scientists use to predict volcanic eruptions.
35 Section 3 Causes of Volcanic Eruptions The Formation of Magma Understanding how magma forms helps explain why volcanoes erupt. Magma forms in the deeper regions of the Earth s crust and in the uppermost layers of the mantle. cano_types/subd1.htm
36 Section 3 Causes of Volcanic Eruptions Where Volcanoes Form The locations of volcanoes give clues about how volcanoes form. The map on the next slide shows the location of some of the worlds most active volcanoes.
37 Section 3 Causes of Volcanic Eruptions
38 Section 3 Causes of Volcanic Eruptions When Tectonic Plates Separate At a divergent boundary, tectonic plates move away from each other, forming a set of deep cracks called a rift zone between the plates. Mantle rock rises to fill the gap opened by the separating tectonic plates. When mantle rock nears the surface, pressure decreases, which causes the mantle rock to melt and form magma.
39 Section 3 Causes of Volcanic Eruptions
40 Section 3 Causes of Volcanic Eruptions When Tectonic Plates Separate, continued Mid-Ocean Ridges Form at Divergent Boundaries Lava that flows from undersea rift zones produces volcanoes and mountain chains called mid-ocean ridges. At these mid-ocean ridges, lava flows out and creates new crust. Most volcanic activity on Earth occurs at mid-ocean ridges.
41 Section 3 Causes of Volcanic Eruptions When Tectonic Plates Collide Convergent boundaries are places where tectonic plates collide. When an oceanic plate collides with a continental plate, the oceanic plate usually slides underneath the continental plate. This is a process called subduction.
42 Section 3 Causes of Volcanic Eruptions When Tectonic Plates Collide, continued Subduction Produces Magma As descending oceanic crust scrapes past the continental crust, the temperature and pressure increase. The following Visual Concepts presentation shows how subduction produces magma, and how that magma can rise to form a volcano.
43 Section 3 Causes of Volcanic Eruptions Hot Spots Not all magma develops along tectonic plates boundaries. Some volcanoes are located at places known as hot spots. Hot spots are volcanically active places on the Earth s surface that are far from plate boundaries. Some scientists think that hot spots are directly above columns of rising magma, called mantle plumes.
44 Section 3 Causes of Volcanic Eruptions Hot Spots, continued A hot spot often produces a chain of volcanoes. One theory is that the mantle plume stays in the same spot while the tectonic plates move over it. Other scientists think that hot spots are the result of cracks in the Earth s crust. The theory argues that hot-spot volcanoes occur in chains because they form along the cracks in the Earth s crust.
45 Section 3 Causes of Volcanic Eruptions Predicting Volcanic Eruptions Volcanoes are classified in three categories: Active Volcanoes Dormant Volcanoes Extinct Volcanoes
46 Section 3 Causes of Volcanic Eruptions Predicting Volcanic Eruptions, continued Measuring Small Quakes and Volcanic Gases Most active volcanoes produce small earthquakes as the magma within them moves upward and causes the surrounding rock to shift. Just before an eruption, the number and intensity of the earthquakes increase. Monitoring these quakes is one way to predict an eruption. Studying the ratio of certain gases in a volcano also may help predict eruptions.
47 Section 3 Causes of Volcanic Eruptions Predicting Volcanic Eruptions, continued Measuring Slope and Temperature As magma moves upward prior to an eruption, it can cause the Earth s surface to swell, and the side of a volcano may even bulge. Scientists can use instruments and satellite technology to detect changes in a volcano s slope. Infrared satellite images record changes in surface temperature and gas emissions of a volcano to watch if the magma below is rising.
Section 2 Types of Volcanoes Key Concept Tectonic plate motions can result in volcanic activity at plate boundaries. What You Will Learn Nonexplosive eruptions of basaltic magma occur at divergent boundaries.
