L6 precict and mointering volcanoes

  1. 1. Monitoring and predicting volcano eruptions LO – To understand if volcanic eruptions can be predicted and how volcanoes are monitored.
  2. 2. Volcano Monitoring • Electronic Tiltmeters can be placed on the side of the volcano and measure very small movements in its shape due to magma rising beneath the surface. • Satellites can also detect movement of just 1mm. • Volcano Spiders can monitor inside a volcano and send data back to a central base. • All these methods can help monitor the start of the volcano and are often done by one organisation (e.g. Montserrat volcano observatory)
  3. 3. Pablo (Philippines) ; HELP! I’m v worried that the volcano is going 2 blow its top! How can I tell if it is going 2 erupt or not?? Me; I’m not 2 sure … I’ll investigate nw, I’m in my Geog lesson! Pablo; Quick … its getting v bg! • You need to research to see how Pablo can tell if the volcano is going to blow its top. • Investigate how eruptions can be predicted (p20 & hand-out) • Write a text message once you have found the things that he should look for.
