The plates always move very slowly but when the plates move suddenly they often cause an earthquake. That’s why Twinkl NewsRoom produces daily educational news stories that use child-friendly language and contain handy glossaries to support children’s reading skills. For instance, an eruption of a large enough magnitude can have an impact on the climate, altering the temperature and precipitation patterns, and even cause widespread famine. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Composite volcanoes also tend to release a ton of hot ash and rocks into the air when they erupt, which is very dangerous.

They could blow at any minute, but they’re also the source of most of the ground we live on, and give us windows into our planet’s core. The internal heat associated with young volcanic systems has been harnessed to produce geothermal energy . Following the 1991 eruption of Mount Pinatubo in the Philippines, cooler than normal temperatures were recorded worldwide and brilliant sunsets and sunrises were attributed to this eruption that sent fine ash and gases high into the stratosphere, forming a large volcanic cloud that drifted around the world. The 1991 eruption of Mount Pinatubo ejected more than 1 cubic mile (5 cubic kilometers) of material into the air and created a column of ash that rose 22 miles (35 km) in the atmosphere.

The VEI or Volcanic Explosivity Index has its classifications and description that starts from 0 to 8. Instead, heat is transferred from Earth’s interior largely by convection—that is, the partial melting of Earth’s crust and mantle and the buoyant rise of magma to the surface. This PowerPoint is the perfect way to introduce your children to the real events of Pompeii and the eruption of Mount Vesuvius.

Active volcanoes - An active volcano is one that has erupted recently, and there is a possibility that it may erupt again. Normally, lava domes form within the crater of a previous volcanic eruption or can even form independently. They can cause a lot of damage and destroy buildings, kill and injure people, destroy forests, ruin crops, cause illness, and poison lakes and rivers. They can spew out lava, rocks, ash, and other materials, and some even produce stunningly beautiful lava fountains and glowing hot clouds.You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. The total height of Mauna Kea, below and above sea level, is 33,500 feet (10,210 meters), making it taller than even Mount Everest. They help children understand how volcanoes erupt in real time and the ongoing effects eruptions can have on landscapes and communities.
