Volcanic Hazards Project
Projects are due on Monday December 3rd, Bonus points will be earned for projects that are submitted
via e-mail on or before Friday November 30th.
There are hundreds of active volcanoes on Earth today, and anyone of them can cause hazards that
place humans at risk. Internet servers contain ample information about where modern volcanoes are
located, where volcanoes are now erupting, volcanic hazards, and the risks being taken by people who
live near volcanoes.
Upon completion of this project you will submit it as an attached file to [email protected]
You may find this site useful in completing this project: http://pubs.usgs.gov/gip/volc/cover2.html
