Shawn's Volcano Presentation Shawn's Volcano Presentation Presentation Transcript

  • Volcanoes
  • What Are Volcanoes?
    • A volcano is a landform (usually a mountain) where molten rock erupts through the surface of the planet.
    • In simple terms a volcano is a mountain that opens downward to a pool of molten rock (magma) below the surface of the earth. It is a hole in the Earth from which molten rock and gas erupt.
    • From: http://www.woodlands-junior.kent.sch.uk/Homework/mountains/volcanoes.htm
  • What do Volcanoes look like?
    • A volcano is a big mountain that has a big circle hole at the top of the mountain.
    • After an eruption a volcano is very grey/black/brown with red/yellow/orange lava around the top.
  • How do Volcanoes erupt?
    • Volcanoes are formed when there is a great pressure inside the earth’s crust and the force of the magma reaches so high that it finds its way upward causing an eruption. From: http://www.letusfindout.com/how-do-volcano-erupt/

  • New Zealand Volcano Eruption Warnings
    • An eruption is coming, warns GNS Science volcanologist Dr Graham Leonard, and anyone living pretty much north of Wellington should be prepared. For more information visit: http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/4317059/Eruption-threat-real-warns-expert

  • What country has the most volcanoes?
