Savage Earth Out of the Inferno. Most of the damage in stratovolcano eruptions comes not from lava flow but from a phenomenon known as pyroclastic flow.
A pyroclastic flow is an avalanche of ground-hugging hot rock accompanied by a cloud of ash and gas that races down the slope of a volcano. The flow can reach speeds of up to 60 miles per hour, and temperatures of nearly 1,300 degrees Fahrenheit. Pyroclastic flows cause more death and destruction than any other volcanic hazard. Introduction. Today, there are many active volcanoes worldwide.
Is there anything we can do to predict how and when they will erupt? As the world's population grows, more and more people are living in potentially dangerous volcanic areas. Volcanic eruptions continue--as they have throughout most of geologic time--posing ever-greater threats to life and property. Mt.

Titanic Images from Maryland Newspapers - Maryland State Archives. The Titanic Thematic Unit. Wildfires Field Trip Intro. For many years, fire supression was used to controal and eliminate wildland fires.
This was thought to be the right thing to do. Over time however, the duff, or underbrush piled up and fuel (the materials that fire feeds on) was allowed to accumulate to the point that were a fire to occur, disaster would almost certainly result. More recently, research (and physical evidence) has shown that allowing naturally occurring fires to burn is one way that nature takes care of housecleaning.
Forest resource management now uses a technique called prescribed burns where they perform controlled burning to help that process along. These methods have their supporters and their opponents. Objectives Students will learn about wildland fires and what causes them. Concepts How do wildland fires start? Terms To Learn. Avalanches Theme Page.
