Caulle Volcano Eruption, Chile - Francisco Negroni. Life Under the Volcano. Latacunga’s City Hall, in the heart of downtown, was quite literally built from the rubble of the city’s past destruction: it’s the only seat of government in the world constructed out of pumice—a rock formed by cooling lava.

Life Under the Volcano

Behind the pumice columns that hold up City Hall, which is now over 100 years old, sits the Department of Planning, where Patricio DeWitt, the city’s current Chief of Planning and Regulation, has been working on volcano-proofing the city. “We are going to grow the city west, away from Río Cutuchi,” he tells me, as we sit in his office. Dewitt explains that the city is going to invest in services such as water and electricity and build new schools in that area. “The people will move to where the services are.” He shows me a map with a big black line outlined around the city, with a bulge toward the west.

The city’s economy contracted in the months following the 2015 eruption. “We have always lived next to a volcano,” says Ramiro Viteri, who owns a local tour company. *****California sleeping giants: High-risk volcanoes in California video.

New Lava Centre Exhibition For Iceland School trips to Iceland have grown in popularity in recent years, and I have been lucky enough to be regularly involved with some of them through my work with Rayburn Tours.

New Lava Centre Exhibition For Iceland

This summer I am looking forward to visiting a new interpretation centre called the ‘Lava Centre’ that is to open in the small village of Hvollsvollur. This convenient location is sure to benefit passing school groups, as it is on the main route (Highway One) that links a number of ‘must see’ locations on the south coast. The Lava Centre opens on June 1st, and promises to be Iceland’s largest volcano and earthquake exhibition. It will feature interactive displays exploring the art, science and geology of the tectonic forces that have created Iceland itself. Bring it on! Like this: Like Loading...

During a volcanic eruption, lava, tephra (ash, lapilli, volcanic bombs and blocks), and various gases are expelled from a volcanic vent or fissure. Several types of volcanic eruptions have been distinguished by volcanologists. *****Taranaki NZ from space: "Volcanoes are one way Earth gives birth to itself." - Robert Gross Photo of New Zealand's Mount Taranaki volcano by space station crew. Cut-out 3D volcano model.

A simple schematic model of the Eyjafjallajökull volcano summit, crater and ash plume as seen on Blue Peter's Make It.

Cut-out 3D volcano model

It is intended as a simple guide to understanding how volcanoes such as Eyjafjallajökull are influenced by tectonic plate activity along the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. It also shows the route of the floodwater from melted glacier ice to the sea. The model is not to scale. Man swims dangerously close to lava zone in Hawaii.

Enormous dome in central Andes driven by huge magma body beneath it (cryptodome) A new analysis of the topography of the central Andes shows the uplifting of the Earth's second highest continental plateau was driven in part by a huge zone of melted rock in the crust, known as a magma body.

Enormous dome in central Andes driven by huge magma body beneath it (cryptodome)

The Altiplano-Puna plateau is a high, dry region in the central Andes that includes parts of Argentina, Bolivia, and Chile, with vast plains punctuated by spectacular volcanoes. In a study published October 25 in Nature Communications, researchers used remote sensing data and topographic modeling techniques to reveal an enormous dome in the plateau. About 1 kilometer (3,300 feet) high and hundreds of miles across, the dome sits right above the largest active magma body on Earth. The uplifting of the dome is the result of the thickening of the crust due to the injection of magma from below, according to Noah Finnegan, associate professor of Earth and planetary sciences at UC Santa Cruz and senior author of the paper.
