  • Thank you so much Tony, we have been using this with junior classes all this week. We still have over 30 students missing [mainly Asian] and 5 staff so the help it has provided has been very welcomed. The 'Which is True' pane has been the source of much debate; thank you. M

  5. 5. So... what happened?<br />Iceland is located on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge.<br />The North-American and Eurasian plates move apart- called constructive plates.<br />This causes magma to rise to the surface and form volcanoes.<br />The latest eruption occurred under a glacier.<br />The water cooled the lava quickly resulting in glass particles entering the plume.<br />http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Fimmvorduhals_second_fissure_2010_04_02.JPG<br />

  8. 8. Why can’t we fly?- Which are true?<br />The particles erode the fans of the engines. <br />Glass in the plume melts and coats the internal parts of the engine.<br />The aircraft is likely to be hit by lava.<br />The particles can sandblast the windscreen making it difficult to land.<br />Ash blocks the ventilation system, causing the engines to overheat and shut down.<br />Gases from the volcano could cause the pilots to pass out.<br />http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Turbofan3_Unlabelled.gif<br />Ash can add significant weight to the aircraft and change its balance.<br />Ash can cause damage to instruments that measure pressure and airspeed.<br />Pilots are unable to navigate due to the poor visibility.<br />
