In this video we will describe the most common types of volcanic hazards associated with a volcanic eruption. We begin by considering the threat of an eruption from a Cascade Range volcano for citizens of Portland and Seattle. These are examples of composite volcanoes. Eruptions of these types of...

This video describes the principle control on the violence of volcanic eruptions. We define the term viscosity and show examples of everyday materials with different viscosity. Next we are splattered with soda and milkshake to illustrate how gases can drive volcanic eruptions (the sacrifices we make...
