Lassen Peak (volcano)
Volcanoes are some of the most
beautiful and dangerous things to observe
in the world. Volcanoes are some of the
most amazing things to watch, they make
you want to be close to them but it\'s to
dangerous.The volcano I chose was "Lassen
Peak" located in California,USA.I chose
this volcano because it\'s located in
California, and California is one of my
favourite places in the world.
Now I\'am going to tell you a little
bit about Lassen Peak.This volcano is
located in Northern California.The volcano
consists of a chain of vents aligned
roughly north to south, extending at least
8km north.Volcanism began at Lassen Peak
between 600,000 and 350,000 years ago. The
people that studied this volcano only use
the last 35,000 years to predict the
volcanoes next eruption.
The most recent eruption at Lassen Peak
was in 1914-1917 A.D. The eruption began on
May,30,1914 when a small eruption occurred
in a new vent near the summit of the
Peak. During the following year 1915 more
than 150 explosions occurred in various
sizes. The explosions ended in about the
middle of the year 1917.
I did not find out how many people
were killed by this volcano or if anyone
was killed.I fell this volcano most likely
killed some people and destroyed plenty of
land.I would love to live in California
that would be my dream,but than again it
could be a nightmare with all the
earthquakes and volcanoes the state has.
In conclusion I think we are lucky to
live in Nova Scotia, because we have no
real danger it\'s just foggy and cold.

EarthquakesEarthquakes EARTH QUAKE REFERENCE FILES EARTHQUAKE REFERENCE FILES Earthquake, shaking of the earth’s surface caused by rapid movement of the earth’s rocky outer layer. Earthquakes occur when energy stored within the earth, usually in the form of strain in rocks, suddenly releases. This energy is transmitted to the surface of the earth by earthquake waves. The study of earthquakes and the waves they create is called seismology. Scientists who study earthquakes are called seismologists. (Webster’
Mt. St. HelensMt. St. Helens Top of Volcano Blown Off In Blast! 18/04/82. 60 people were killed today when Mt. St Helens blew its top Mt. St Helens erupted two years ago today in a blast that caused the volcano to be reduced by 451 metres (1313 feet). The volcano is south-western Washington and is part of the Cascade Range. Mt. St Helens had been dormant since 1859 and has let off its first blast since then today. The volcano killed all life in an area of 180 sq. cm(70 sq. miles) including at least 60 people!

Mount St. HelensMount St. Helens GEOLOGY 170 REPORT: MT. ST. HELENS: Mount St. Helens is located in southwestern Washington about 50 miles northeast of Portland, Oregon. Mount St. Helen is one of several volcanic peaks that dominate the Cascade Range in the Pacific Northwest. The principal part of the range extends from Mount Garibaldi in British Columbia, Canada, to Lassen Peak in northern California. It was considered one of most beautiful mountains in the Cascade Mountain Range. St. Helens was often compared
VolcanoesVolcanoes By Tricia Severson 2nd hour Science 4/30/98 A volcano is a vent, or opening, in the surface of the Earth through which magma and associated gases and ash erupt. The word also refers to the form or structure, usually conical, produced by accumulations of erupted material. Volcanoes occur mainly near plate tectonic boundaries and are especially common around the Pacific basin, called the Pacific Ring of Fire (see Plate Tectonics). Humanity has long been awed by this powerful force of
A Theory to Explain the Patterns of ActivityA Theory to Explain the Patterns of Activity Scientists now have a fairly good understanding of how the plates move and how such movements relate to earthquake activity. Most movement occurs along narrow zones between plates where the results of plate-tectonic forces are most evident. There are four types of plate boundaries: · Divergent boundaries -- where new crust is generated as the plates pull away from each other. · Convergent boundaries -- where crust is destroyed as one plate dives under
Mt. St. HelensMt. St. Helens There are many volcanoes in the world today. The volcano we chose to do a report on is Mt. St. Helens. Mt. St. Helens is a volcano in Washington State, U.S.A. It\'s 8,364 feet above sea level. Mt. St. Helens is a volcano in the Cascade Range. It\'s also a volcano in the Ring of Fire. Mt. St. Helens is a composite volcano. That means it\'s a layered volcano. Mt. St. Helens is snowcapped. The first person who found and named Mt. St. Helens was George Vancouver in 1792. He named it a
Dante's PeakDante\'s Peak After seeing the movie, I have to say that its presentation and delivery was more than satisfactory. Its story, however, is nothing new specially here in the volcano-infested Philippine archipelago. Dante\'s Peak is a good adventure/natural catastrophe movie that can make the viewers get a feel for how geologists work. . . The Movie is set in the Cascade Range of the Pacific Northwest, U.S.A. Dante\'s Peak is, of course, not a real Cascade volcano, and although Idaho is adjacent
Mount St. HelenMount St. Helen Mount St. Helen is a volcano located along the Cascade range which is a volcano chain stretching from Northern California to British Colombia. It now stands at a height of 8,364 feet above sea level. Mount St. Helen was on of the smaller eruptions of five major ones in Washington State. It’s elevation before the eruption was 9,677 feet high. On March 29, 1980 after a period of one-hundred and twenty-three years of inactivity a earthquake under the volcano quaked, and seven days l
VOLCANOESVOLCANOES The objective of this project is that I am going to explain about volcanoes, the different types of volcanoes and tell some other interesting facts on this subject. Here is some background information about volcanoes. Volcanoes are vents in the Earth where molten rock (magma) and gases erupt. Molten rock inside the Earth is called magma. The source of the magma-producing heat is thought to the decay of radioactive isotopes in the Earth. When magma flows out of the volcano it is called
