The fine-grained nature of volcanic ash means it is easily transported by winds to distance of hundreds to thousands of kilometres away from the volcano. Volcanoes can be found in various parts of the world, ranging from well-known and highly active ones such as Mount Vesuvius in Italy, to lesser-known and dormant ones like Shiveluch Volcano in Russia.

At any one time there are around 20 volcanoes erupting around the world, some have been erupting regularly for over a thousand years - Stromboli. The heat that is created from volcanic eruptions can also be harnessed and used to make electricity. Viewing an erupting volcano is a memorable experience, one that has inspired fear, superstition, worship, curiosity, and fascination since before the dawn of civilization. The water that gets trapped in the process will start to boil (due to the high temperatures) and begin to melt the rock.When erupting, all volcanoes pose a degree of risk to people and infrastructure, however, the risks are not equivalent from one volcano to another because of differences in eruptive style and geographic location. Share this intriguing story about active volcanoes that have been found on the surface of another planet in our solar system - Venus! Unlike most mountains which are pushed up from below, volcanoes are built up by an accumulation of their own eruptive products such as lava, ash flows, airborne ash, and dust. Jess Phoenix has worked on the Kawa Aegean volcano in Indonesia, the site of the world's largest acid lake.

If you are in an ash fall area, cover your mouth and nose with a mask, keep skin covered, and wear goggles to protect your eyes.Some domes form pointy spines, while others appear as a giant muffin, as opening flower petals, or as steep-sided stubby flows or tongues. Such hazards can impact areas hundreds or thousands of kilometres from the volcano, with the potential for significant health and economic impacts (BGS, 2012). In modern times, volcanic phenomena have attracted intense scientific interest, because they provide the key to understanding processes that have created and shaped more than 80 percent of the Earth's surface. Tours from Argentina will take approximately 13 to 15 days while the Chilean side takes about nine to 15 days, depending on the hiker’s capabilities. During the 2010 Eyjafjallajökull eruption, BGS laboratory analysis of ash samples, collected from a car windscreen in the UK, showed that single grains of ash were formed of both glass and crystal fragments.

Today geologists agree that volcanism is a profound process resulting from the thermal evolution of planetary bodies. For the science geek in everyone, Live Science offers a fascinating window into the natural and technological world, delivering comprehensive and compelling news and analysis on everything from dinosaur discoveries, archaeological finds and amazing animals to health, innovation and wearable technology. The smallest ash particles may be erupted miles into the sky and carried many times around the world by winds high in the atmosphere before they fall to the ground.The loading of tephra on leaves can lead to the burial of plants or the stripping of branches from trees, resulting in a significant impact on agriculture. Information is accompanied by amazing illustrations and photographs that put facts into context for children. Children could use these glossaries as a reference during reading or writing activities on this topic. Found in Southeast Asia, when Krakatau erupted in 1883 it released 200 megatrons of energy – that’s the equivalent of 15,000 nuclear bombs.
