The World's Deadliest Volcanoes See a slide show of the worst volcanic disasters in history and learn what caused the casualties. How do you measure the size of a volcanic eruption? Just as seismologists measure the size of an earthquake using the Richter scale, volcanologists use an eruption magnitude scale called the Volcanic Explosivity Index, or VEI to classify eruptions. This scale assigns a number to an eruption based on things that can be observed, such as the height of an eruptive plume and the volume of the materials erupted.

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.

Volcanoes -- 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.

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.

At approximately 12 p.m. on April 10, 1912, the new Royal Mail Steamer Titanic, flagship of the White Star Line, cast off from Southampton, England, on her maiden voyage to New York. She stopped at Cherbourg, France, and Queenstown (now Cobh), Ireland, picking up additional passengers and mail, as well to debark cross-channel passengers. Steaming west from Queenstown, she carried 2,208 passengers and crew - an eclectic mixture of Edwardian society. From the affluent first class, the likes of Astor, Straus and Guggenheim, to the largely forgotten third class and crew, with names such as Kirkham, Sage and Ward - each with their own unique story to tell. Titanic's speed had been steadily increasing during the voyage as additional boilers were brought online, and on Sunday, April 14, the vessel was making approximately 21.5 knots.

Sea voyages, shipwrecks & disaster tales with New Zealand connections Burning of the ship Blue Jacket In 1869 the immigrant ship Blue Jacket made her return voyage to London from Lyttelton. She was loaded with wool, flax and gold, all treasures from the relatively new colony of New Zealand. Unfortunately she was not to reach her destination and caught fire near the Falkland Islands following which she was abandoned and sank in the South Atlantic. New Zealand Shipwrecks & Disasters
