GLG101 - Intro to Physical Geology; Approximately 2 50-minute lecture periods.
What kinds of activities and strategies do you use to address volcanic hazards?
Identification of volcanic structural features using the application of composition and viscosity. For example, the students examine a slide showing features of a shield volcano and then describe the size, shape, rock color, and how explosive the volcano appears to be. They must then hypothesize what the volcano's igneous composition is (mafic) and how viscous the magma was to produce this type of eruption/structure (low viscosity).
Provide URL or citation for books, articles, videos, or websites you find useful to teach about volcanic hazards.
I utilize "Understanding Volcanic Hazards" by IAVCEI and a worksheet/grid that I have the students fill out while watching the video.
