Volcanic

Different kinds of volcanoes are examined in detail here in the Earth Gallery.


Another kind of destructive power: earthquakes. A map shows different quakes across the world, in different scales, in a time frame you choose.

  3. Scary, but it shows that earth is alive. Glad we have no such "outlet" near by.

  6. I have once been on the Vesuvius in Italy, was a bit scary as there were still some red hot stones lying around.

  8. I've walked on volcanic rock at beaches and have imagined what it was like when that volcanic rock erupted from the ground.
